Margaret Fuller is recognized as an important early American literary critic, journalist, and the author of the first full-length feminist book in the United States. She once said: “I now know all the people worth knowing in America, and I find no intellect comparable to my own.”
Join us as Rob Velella examines this quote, its context, and its potential veracity. Velella is an independent literary historian and playwright. In 2010 he served as guest curator of “Margaret Fuller: Woman of the Nineteenth Century,” an exhibition at Harvard’s Houghton Library.
