The Margaret Ghost, by Carole Braverman,  premiered at the Berkeley Repertory Theater in 1984, and has been produced three times in the Boston area.  A revival by the local theater company Theater@First is planned for the Spring, as part of the bicentennial celebration.   The play follows the epic sweep of Margaret Fuller’s extraordinary  life—from Boston, to New York, to Rome.  But while much is actual, much is imagined, and the play is not for purists.  What it seeks to capture is her dazzling intellect, her bold resilient wit, and the struggle of her visionary, expansive spirit against the confines of her Nineteenth Century World.  The title comes from Henry James’ brief, enigmatic reference to her in his biography of Nathaniel Hawthorne.               Click the link to read Act One.

Margaret Fuller: A New American LifeMegan Marshall’s much-awaited biography of Margaret Fuller is here!

Advance reviewers have already praised Margaret Fuller: A New American Life as “a magnificent biography,” “spectacularly detailed” and written with a “unique intimacy.”  Emerson’s biographer Robert D. Richardson writes, “this is the book Margaret Fuller would have wanted.”

Marshall tells the story of Fuller’s rise to prominence among the Transcendentalists, her vexed relationship with Ralph Waldo Emerson, the flowering of her feminism in New England and her departure for New York to write for Horace Greeley’s Tribune “at home and abroad,” leading to her love affair with Giovanni Ossoli—all with fresh insight and uncommon pathos. Synthesizing the scholarship of recent decades and drawing on her own research finds—a new record of Fuller’s famous Conversations for women, an Emerson letter describing Thoreau’s findings at the site of the fatal shipwreck, an engraving of Rome belonging to Fuller that survived the wreck—Marshall brings our great American heroine to new and vivid life.  If you loved The Peabody Sisters, Marshall’s first award-winning biography, you will love Margaret Fuller.
