"What Margaret Thought of George" (Book Section)
Title: "What Margaret Thought of George"
Author: Gary Williams
Editor: Jana Argersinger, Phyllis Cole
Abstract: Analysis of American writer Margaret Fuller's reading notes on the novels of French writer George Sand, as well as Fuller's published comments about Sand. The article's argument is that Sand prompted Fuller to think about how she might write in Sand's mode (quite different from her own) and that a Fuller sketch, "The Magnolia of Lake Pontchartrain," is evidence for this influence.
