Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Margaret Fuller Ossoli, Chapter 13: business life in New York. (1844-1846.) (search)
ffice was just at that time the working centre of much of the practical radicalism in the country; but he was also a person of ideal aims and tastes, and was perhaps the first conspicuous man in America, out of Boston, who publicly recognized in Emerson the greatest of our poets. He brought Margaret Fuller to New York, not only that she might put the literary criticism of the Tribune on a higher plane than any American newspaper occupied, but that she might discuss in a similar spirit all phil her articles on public questions, signed always with an asterisk (*), were those most read in New York, it was her literary criticism that traveled farthest and brought forth most praise or blame. Her first paper in the Tribune was a review of Emerson's Essays, which appeared December 7, 1844. Parton's Greeley, p. 255. Here she was, in a manner, on her own ground; but she soon had to plunge, so far as literature was concerned, into a sea of troubles. She entered on her work at a time when

Chapter 14: European travel. (1846-1847.) This was Margaret Fuller's last note to Mr. Emerson before her departure for Europe:-- New York, 15th July, 1846. I leave Boston in the Cambria, 1st August. Shall be at home at my mother's in Cambridgeport the morning of the 30th July. Can see you either that day or the next there, as I shall not go out. Please write to care of Richard [Fuller], 6 State Street, Boston, which day you will come. I should like to take the letter to Carlylea paragraph, while on other points caution or courtesy dictated a reticence which it is now needless to maintain. Here is a passage from her Edinburgh diary. David Scott, whose pictures interested her so much, painted a striking portrait of Emerson, which is now in the Concord, Massachusetts, public library:-- [September, 1846.] At Robert Chambers's. Saw there beautiful book of Highlanders in their costumes. Hopes of chemistry as to making food. Remark of R. C. as to the clumsiness
Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Margaret Fuller Ossoli, Chapter 15: marriage and motherhood. (1847-1850.) (search)
Fuller's young lover stood out above all distrust. There lie before me two old-fashioned daguerreotypes of him, and a lock of his hair, the characteristic blue-black hair of his nation. The pictures represent a thoroughly Italian face and figure: dark, delicate, slender; by no means the man, one would say, to marry at thirty an American woman of thirty-seven, she being poor, intellectual, and without beauty. Yet it will be very evident, when we come to read their letters to each other, that the disinterested and devoted love which marked this marriage was so far a fulfillment of Margaret Fuller's early dreams. Mr. Kinney, the American consul, wrote to Mr. Emerson from Turin, May 2, 1851: It is abundantly evident that her young husband discharged all the obligations of his relation to her con amore. His admiration amounted to veneration, and her yearning to be loved seemed at least to be satisfied. Ms. There is every reason to believe that this statement was none too strong.

atural that she should share the fault. Her defects were those of Emerson and of Thoreau and yet, after her Tribune training, she learned tore many friendships, there was no personal and controlling ruler. Emerson came the nearest to this, and yet we see by her letters how frankles high-flown, but she offers no paradoxes so startling as some of Emerson's, and is incomparably smoother and clearer than Alcott. Nor is h) This statement belongs upon the same plane with that made by Emerson in his essay on the Over-soul, that In all conversation between twages of which this is an example; and it is such as these to which Emerson refers when he speaks of her lyric glimpses. But in her publisheden she lived, method was not the strong point, nor did her friend Emerson set her, in this respect, a controlling example.
