About the Author

Fuller, Margaret: - "Sarah Margaret Fuller (May 23, 1810 - July 19, 1850) was an American journalist, editor, critic, translator, and women's rights campaigner who was a member of the American transcendentalism movement. She was the first female American war journalist and full-time book critic in journalism. Woman in the Nineteenth Century is often regarded as the first important feminist literature published in the United States. Sarah Margaret Fuller was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and had a good education from her father, Timothy Fuller, a lawyer who died of cholera in 1835. She then received more formal education and became a teacher before launching her Conversations series in 1839 to compensate for women's lack of access to higher education. In 1840, she became the first editor of the transcendentalist periodical The Dial, which launched her literary career, before joining the staff of the New-York Tribune under Horace Greeley in 1844."
