Data de falecimento: 19. Julho 1850

Sarah Margaret Fuller Ossoli , mais conhecida como Margaret Fuller, foi uma jornalista, crítica e defensora dos direitos da mulher norte-americana associada ao movimento transcendentalista americano. Foi a primeira crítica literária de jornalismo, do sexo feminino e a tempo inteiro, nos Estados Unidos O seu livro Woman in the Nineteenth Century é considerado o primeiro trabalho literário feminista nos Estados Unidos.

Nascida em Cambridge, Massachusetts, foi-lhe fornecida uma educação prematura e substancial pelo seu pai, Timothy Fuller. Teve mais tarde uma educação mais formal e tornou-se professora antes de, em 1839, começar a ver o que ela chamava de "conversas": debates entre mulheres com o objetivo de compensar a sua falta de acesso ao ensino superior. Tornou-se a primeira editora do jornal transcendentalista The Dial em 1840, antes de se juntar a equipa do New York Tribune debaixo do controlo de Horace Greeley em 1844. Nos seus 30, Fuller havia ganho a reputação de pessoa mais culta de Nova Inglaterra, tanto homem como mulher, e foi a primeira mulher autorizada a utilizar a biblioteca de Harvard. O seu trabalho seminal, Woman in the Nineteenth Century, foi publicado em 1845. Um ano depois, foi enviada à Europa pelo Tribune como a sua primeira correspondente do sexo feminino. Cedo se começou a envolver com a Revolução Italiana e aliou-se com Giuseppe Mazzini. Teve uma relação com Giovanni Ossoli, da qual teve uma criança. Todos os três membros da família morreram num naufrágio perto de Fire Island, Nova Iorque, ao viajarem para Nova Iorque em 1850. O corpo de Fuller jamais foi recuperado.

Citações Margaret Fuller

„Existence is as deep a verity:
Without the dual, where is unity?“

—  Margaret Fuller
Life Without and Life Within (1859), The One In All, Context: Existence is as deep a verity: Without the dual, where is unity? And the "I am"" cannot forbear to be;But from its primal nature forced to frame Mysteries, destinies of various name, Is forced to give that it has taught to claim.

„There are noble books but one wants the breath of life sometimes.“

—  Margaret Fuller
Context: There are noble books but one wants the breath of life sometimes. And I see no divine person. I myself am more divine than any I see — I think that is enough to say about them... Letter to Ralph Waldo Emerson (1 March 1838); published in The Letters of Margaret Fuller vol. I, p. 327, , edited by Robert N. Hudspeth (1983).

„All around us lies what we neither understand nor use. Our capacities, our instincts for this our present sphere are but half developed.“

—  Margaret Fuller
Summer on the Lakes, in 1843 (1844), Context: All around us lies what we neither understand nor use. Our capacities, our instincts for this our present sphere are but half developed. Let us confine ourselves to that till the lesson be learned; let us be completely natural; before we trouble ourselves with the supernatural. I never see any of these things but I long to get away and lie under a green tree and let the wind blow on me. There is marvel and charm enough in that for me. "Good Sense" in a dialogue between Free Hope, Old Church, Good Sense, and Self -Poise. p. 127.

„Nature provides exceptions to every rule.“

—  Margaret Fuller, livro Woman in the Nineteenth Century
Woman in the Nineteenth Century (1845), Context: Male and female represent the two sides of the great radical dualism. But, in fact, they are perpetually passing into one another. Fluid hardens to solid, solid rushes to fluid. There is no wholly masculine man, no purely feminine woman. History jeers at the attempts of physiologists to bind great original laws by the forms which flow from them. They make a rule; they say from observation what can and cannot be. In vain! Nature provides exceptions to every rule. She sends women to battle, and sets Hercules spinning; she enables women to bear immense burdens, cold, and frost; she enables the man, who feels maternal love, to nourish his infant like a mother.

„Live earnestly by turns without despair,
Nor seek a home till home be every where!“

—  Margaret Fuller
Life Without and Life Within (1859), The One In All, Context: I only know one prayer — "Give me the truth, Give me that colored whiteness, ancient youth, Complex and simple, seen in joy and ruth.Let me not by vain wishes bar my claim, Nor soothe my hunger by an empty name, Nor crucify the Son of man by hasty blame.But in the earth and fire, water and air, Live earnestly by turns without despair, Nor seek a home till home be every where!"

„Mercury has cast aside
The signs of intellectual pride,
Freely offers thee the soul:
Art thou noble to receive?“

—  Margaret Fuller
Life Without and Life Within (1859), My Seal-Ring, Context: Mercury has cast aside The signs of intellectual pride, Freely offers thee the soul: Art thou noble to receive? Canst thou give or take the whole, Nobly promise and believe? Then thou wholly human art, A spotless, radiant, ruby heart, And the golden chain of love Has bound thee to the realm above.

„With equal sweetness the commissioned hours
Shed light and dew upon both weeds and flowers.“

—  Margaret Fuller
Life Without and Life Within (1859), The Thankful and the Thankless, Context: With equal sweetness the commissioned hours Shed light and dew upon both weeds and flowers. The weeds unthankful raise their vile heads high, Flaunting back insult to the gracious sky; While the dear flowers, wht fond humility, Uplift the eyelids of a starry eye In speechless homage, and, from grateful hearts, Perfume that homage all around imparts.
