GAVIN JONES is professor of English at Stanford University.
"Margaret is an important novel, interesting on its own terms and also for its relevance to our understanding of nineteenth-century American literature. I could imagine teaching it in courses on the Transcendentalists, on sentimental literature, on nature writing, on the literature of social protest, on the nineteenth-century American novel, and in relation to such authors as Emerson, Fuller, Thoreau, Stowe, Hawthorne, Alcott, Melville, and James." - Samuel Otter, author of Melville's Anatomies"
