Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Margaret Fuller Ossoli, chapter 7 (search)
Chapter 7: suburban life at Jamaica Plain. (1838-1844.) In looking forward to leaving the scene of her school-teaching, Margaret Fuller wrote thus to Mrs. Barlow in a moment of headache and nervous exhaustion:-- November 8, 1838. I shallall not dare to go and see him. Ms. Three months later the family left Groton forever, having taken a house at Jamaica Plain, then and perhaps now the most rural and attractive suburb of Boston. Here their dwelling was near a little stream, his home, and I towards mine. American note-books, II. 85. Such scenes were but joyful interludes in her life at Jamaica Plain; at other times there were what she calls the rye-bread days given to domestic cares and country cousins, as in this be catechised no more for great truths to feed his earnest mind. Fuller Mss. i. 425. The Fuller family resided at Jamaica Plain from the spring of 1839 to that of 1842, when Margaret took the responsibility of purchasing a house in Ellery Street

Chapter 8: conversations in Boston. It was in the suburban quiet of Jamaica Plain that the project of holding literary conversations first shaped itself. When Madame de Stael asked the Comte de Segur which he liked best, her conversation or her writings, he is reported to have replied, Your conversation, madame, for then you have not the leisure to become obscure. It was really in the effort to avoid obscurity and clarify her own thoughts that Margaret Fuller began by talking instead ofth eagerness the intellectual exercise; she felt that she was, perhaps, doing some good; and the longing for affection, which was one of the strongest traits of her nature, was gratified by the warm allegiance of her pupils. She went back to Jamaica Plain, every now and then, to rest, and, while rejoicing in that respite, still felt that her field was action, and that she could not, like Mr. Emerson, withdraw from the world to a quiet rural home. She wrote thus, on one occasion, to the Rev. W

work in writing to friends and summoning forth contributions. Thus she writes on New Year's Day, to the Rev. W. H. Channing, then preaching at Cincinnati:-- Jamaica Plain, 1st January, 1840. I write to inform you that there is now every reason to hope that a first number of the much-talked of new journal may be issued next Ap At Newport you prophesied a new literature: shall it dawn in 1840? Ms. (W. H. C.) On the same day she writes to Rev. F. H. Hedge, at Bangor, Maine:-- Jamaica Plain, 1st January, 1840. My dear Henry,--I write this New Year's Day to wish you all happiness, and to say that there is reason to expect the new journal (in sucr criticism, and how much? for we are planning out our first number by the yard. Let me hear from you directly. Ms. Later, she writes to him again:-- Jamaica Plain, 10th March, 1840. Henry, I adjure you, in the name of all the Genii, Muses, Pegasus, Apollo, Pollio, Apollyon, ( and must I mention --) to send me someth

thers. Her preface is certainly modest enough, and underrates instead of overstating the value of lier own work. She made a delightful book of it, and one which, with Sarah Austin's Characteristics of Goethe, helped to make the poet a familiar personality to English-speaking readers. For one, I can say that it brought him nearer to me than any other book, before or since, has ever done. This volume was published at Boston, by Hilliard, Gray & Co., in 1839,--her preface being dated at Jamaica Plain on May 23 of that year,--and I suspect that she never had any compensation for it beyond the good practice for herself and the gratitude of others. Her preface contains some excellent things, giving a view of Goethe more moderate than that which Carlyle had just brought into vogue, though she still was ardent and admiring enough. But she points out very well — though perhaps emphasizing them too much — some of the limitations of Goethe's nature. She does not even admit him to be in t

then accessible, as Mr. Greeley tells us, only by a long winding private lane, wholly dark at night and meeting the old Boston Road at Forty-Ninth Street. The only regular communication with the thickly-settled parts of that city--two miles away — was by an hourly stage on the Third Avenue. Greeley's Recollections of a busy life, p. 177. In this suburban retirement Margaret Fuller must have been almost as much cut off from the evening life of the metropolis as if she had remained at Jamaica Plain; and this fact doubtless abbreviated her stay there; but meanwhile she reveled in its picturesqueness,--the wide hall, the piazza, the garden, the trees, the rocks, the gliding sails. She thus describes her position to her brother Eugene, in New Orleans:-- For me, I have never been so well situated. As to a home, the place where we live is old and dilapidated, but in a situation of great natural loveliness. When there I am perfectly secluded, yet every one I wish to see comes to
