Audible The Intimate JournalAuthor George Sand –

George Sand foi uma figura que sempre me fascinou, pela sua coragem de ir contra as regras impostas as mulheres epoca Por isso estava muito curiosa em ler este seu diario intimo Fiquei um pouco desiludida, mas o que se poderia esperar de um diario um diario algo que escrevemos para n s proprios normalmente nas alturas de maior angustia E foi esse o problema que tive com este livro Sand deprimida, angustiada e suicica, a sofrer pelo fim do seu romace com alfred de musset n o me interessa prefiro a imagem de for a.Contudo nem tudo foi mau Gostei particularmente da descri o de veneza logo no inicio, que me fez pensar que uma cidade pode ser completamente diferente atraves do olhar e estilo de dois escritores diferentes e gostei das ultimas paginas do diario em que uma sand mais velha analisa as coisas escritas na juventudeeste livro foi lido atraves do bookcrossinghttp journal 4 I loved reading about her and Frederic Chopin Feel like I was transported into their world. I expected not to be a fan of this at all, but there were a few sections that I thought profound Mostly it s pathetic, melodramatic drivel, but I ve decided I really like her I came out of this book feeling like she was a very generous and charitable person who was much too rash in her decision making and was always attracted to the wrong man I might add that I did not read a thing which would have in any way contributed to the idea of her being a lesbian. Depois de ler a biografia da George Sand pela Rosa Montero, de que gostei muito, fiquei com vontade de ler o Di rio Mas confesso que n o passei da p gina 64 muita depress o, muita infelicidade, muita d vida existencial Decididamente, n o o meu g nero. These Selections From George Sand S Journals Form An Integrated Whole And Show Sand As A Woman, Lover, Mother, Artist, Politician, Chatelaine, And Friend Sand S Journal Writing Is Thought By Many To Be Her Most Expressive And Natural Here The Artist S Most Complex And Interesting Character Is Revealed George Sand Herself Perhaps it s because I read this over a long period of time, in distracted bursts, but this seemed awfully convoluted, even for Sand, whose work is often characterized by strangely complicated plots A novel of courtly intrigue taken to extremes, also interested in gendered power dynamics and moral standards Lots of bizarre devices deployed to connect the dots A very peculiar book. Brilliant Background Sand s great grandfather Claude Dupin bought Chateau de Chenonceau known as The Ladies Chateaux for his second wife Sand s great step grandmother Madame Louise Dupin Louise wrote extensively about equality for women their rights to work and education Her private secretary and son s tutor was JJ Rousseau as young man prior to his writing career The character Princess Cavalcani seems to me a surreal composite of inhabitants of Chenonceau over time, and in a way every woman A beautifully written clear vision thru lenses of the empowered feminine. The work traces a remarkable transformation from a lovesick wretch to a strong, courageous woman of intellect and principle.
