(This book includes the wit and wisdom of Margaret Fuller,...)
This book includes the wit and wisdom of Margaret Fuller, which is as alive and pertinent as it was over a century ago. Much of her wit and wisdom has been lost to posterity since much generated from Fuller's day-to-day conversation. Yet shinning through is the revelation of a singular woman of stature whose accomplishments and large-minded humanity can be a source for inspiration. Lifting Margaret Fuller's words from her works has involved minimal editing, because her style often seems involved and complex to the modern reader. Her scholarly references have meaning for the knowledgeable few today. Even so, her acute perceptions stand to be of highest quality and universal significance. General interest. Adult. Women's studies.
(This is a true account of how Margaret Fuller was buried ...)
This is a true account of how Margaret Fuller was buried in history. At the end of her life, age 40, Margaret Fuller had earned the reputation of being one of the most radical and intellectual persons in the English-speaking world. Her book, "Woman in the Nineteenth Century," and her front page reviews and aritcles in Horace Greeley's New York Daily Tribune were read by all Americans who wished to keep up with what was most current. Yet Fuller remains invisible in textbooks today. She is not awarded the space and respect that is given to our American greats. This tells the story, including how her biographers, Ralph Waldo Emerson, William Henry Channing, and James Freeman Clarke, found it necessary to alter, censor, and destroy her letters and papers, and minimize her achievements. Thus, scholars throughout the century have taken the cue and downplayed or ignored her significance. General interest. Adult. History and women's studies.

This book describes what school was like 150 years ago. It contrasts traditional teaching and discipline with Bronson Alcott's groundbreaking methods. The questions he asked his students in his Conversation on Conscience are included, so readers can respond and compare their answers with what was said in his 1836 classroom. Alcott's techniques of discipline and inductive free inquiry can be successfully applied today. Includes creative suggestions for adults working with children, related activities, original line drawings by John Hartnett, an early drawing of the Temple School, photos of Bronson Alcott, Elizabeth Peabody and Margaret Fuller, a photo legacy of one-room schoolhouses in America, Alcott's 1836 Conversation I, Alcott's Quarter Card of Discipline and Studies for the Spring Term 1836, plus foreward, chronology, biographical and bibliographical references. General audience of adults and children ages eight and up. Particular appeal to teachers and adults working with children. High interest for those specializing in humanities, history, and literature.
