How could we have forgotten Margaret Fuller, and her everything lost, like her "u recoverable manuscript!
Just read Mollie Barnes' "Margaret Fuller's Illegibilities : afterlives of an unreadable, unrecoverable manuscript" in College Literature: A Journal of Critical Literary Studies, pp.116-145. Amazing story, wonderful writing.
Hard thing, growing old, and my husband, the wonderful and courageous Boyce Bennett, a retired pathologist as I say every time, not knowing who ever has read anything, is having a hard time. OOOOF.
