This chapter examines the childhood enlightenment of Margaret Fuller in Cambridge, Massachusetts, during the period from 1810 to 1821. During this time, most of the local residents were living plainly and Cambridge embodied the high thinking and bookishness of the Puritans. Thought Fuller carried a good deal of Cambridge culture all her life, she later came to see more “narrowness” than coziness in Cambridge. This can be attributed to the fact that Fuller was born and lived most of youth in a house not in Cambridge but in a new development called Cambridge Port.
