This chapter examines the life and career of Margaret Fuller during the period from 1835 to 1837. Her father's death was a dark turning in Fuller's life because it converted her long-standing resentment of him into depressive anger at herself and brought her anxiety about filling his place in the family. This chapter describes how Fuller served as head of the family, her management of the family's estate, and her assistance in rearing her younger siblings.
