I read this slowly on purpose, while reading other books on or by George Sand including George Sand in Her Own Words, Story of My Life The Autobiography of George Sand and Impressions et souvenirs , and it all helped me to get a greater understanding of her work and life This particular biography was excellent No wonder it s still cited as the essential one A must read for anyone interested in George Sand.Some longer quotes I want to remember all added to my review as I was reading the book view spoiler Disenchantment had preceded the move so had indiscretion Madame Dupin had contributed seventy five thousand francs to a secret fund for the migr Count d Artois, future King Charies X Perhaps, suggests George Sand, it was because her grandmother, after all, was the cousin of Louis XVI and his brothers, the younger of whom was Count d Artois Indeed, Madame Dupin might have emigrated, as did so many aristocrats, but instead she sought another refuge On August 23, 1773, she purchased a country estate including a small chateau and two hundred and fifty hectares, among them three farms, for two hundred and thirty thousand francs Located in the province of Berry, twenty miles southeast of Ch teauroux, where she had last known happiness, the estate was adjacent to the hamlet of Nohant and would assume its name.On the site once stood a fourteenth century ch teau, of which two small towers alone survived when Pierre Philippe Perron, Seigneur de S rennes, had acquired it in 1767 proof of the peaceful beauty of Nohant and the Berry countryside the Black Valley of George Sand s novels, with Nohant at its center, the rolling hills and fields and grands horizons , the laughing perspectives, the hidden bed of the river Indre a quarter of a league from the Dupin manor, the peasant homes pressing to their very door and the peasants themselves, their tact, reserve and natural courtesy And thus my grandmother spent the next few years at Nohant, busying herself alongside Deschartres with the education of my father and straightening out her affairs La maison de George Sand Nohant, de Vicente Santaolaria.George Sand getting her name Since the publisher, he said, wished to preserve the signature J Sand for Indiana, because of the public it had acquired, why not keep Sand and simply prefix another Christian name or initial Jules, over, would thus recuperate his full name Spontaneously Aurore chose George Sand, because George had a Berrichon sound to it Unconsciously she may have been echoing its source, georgicus Latin for agricultural, as in a georgic or pastoral poem thus evoking the Berrichon peasant scene The English form of George rather than the French Georges might have been Aurore s homage to England, home of liberal thought, and to the English convent of her youth The noblest character of Indiana is named Sir Ralph Brown Indiana herself had an English mother.In fact, G Sand appeared on the title page of the novel when it first appeared in May 1832 Presumably the publisher welcomed the likely confusion with J Sand as occurred in the case of at least one critic Perhaps it was Aurore s own choice the name G Sand was ideal for one who wanted to walk through life as neither dame, nor monsieur neither man, nor woman but rather as a writer among writers.But if the initial G had to be spelled out, better George than Georgina As in her wearing of male attire, calling herself George enabled Aurore to pass the easily through a masculine world, although always herself a woman to herself and her companions And if there seems to have been an insistence on Aurore s choice of name, it is because names as authors especially insist suggest, become, totemize, are the character, the essence of the persona One s name becomes one One also becomes one s name The truth of it may strike immediately Henceforth, Aurore is George.It was a long birth Aurore was a long time creating herself But George Sand was her greatest work I may add some quotes later hide spoiler Amazing Books, Infamous Woman By Joseph Amber Barry This Is Very Good And Becomes The Main Topic To Read, The Readers Are Very Takjup And Always Take Inspiration From The Contents Of The Book Infamous Woman , Essay By Joseph Amber Barry Is Now On Our Website And You Can Download It By Register What Are You Waiting For Please Read And Make A Refission For You Biographie passionnante et tr s facile d acc s Joseph Barry nous trace un portrait tr s intime de George Sand peut tre un peu trop intime par moment qui nous aide cerner l humanit du personnage Il souligne beaucoup l engagement politique de George Sand galement, ce qui est plut t plaisant plut t que de ne la voir d peinte que par le prisme de ses amours, sa famille et ses crits champ tres. She was a really interesting woman She didn t consider herself a feminist, per se, but this would be a good read for modern day feminists and non feminists alike. To place George Sand on a pedestal is to risk letting go of a warm, caring and sensitive personalityand to concentrate solely on the Woman who stands for her Time, but also transcends it in the values and causes she espoused, publicised and popularised Strangely, the very works that carried her message, those many novels and tracts,now appear dated and passe, and practically totally replaced by her Own Life.That Life has been the subject of film and books for some years now because her Life carries and illustrates her beliefs than any fictional tale could credibly bear.Happily that Life fully exposes that warmth and caring humanitythat lay behind all her causes and beliefs.Her writings and activities resonated beyond her Franceand throughout Europe.But what of England Two British fans of her achievements were the expatriateand literary husband and wife team Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barrett Browning who had written two poem in her honour.The English poetess had placed George well and truly at pedestal height, attempting on first meeting to bow and kiss her handbut was gently rebuked with Non, je ne veux pas No, I don t wish it George then promptly kissed her on the lips.TO BE COMPLETEDher influence on the Brontes, especially Emily s Wuthering Heights.

There are many, many biographies out there on George Sand 1804 1876 , both in French and in English, and they are all good I have skimmed through many and quoted from a few, but George Barry s comprehensive, English language version of the life of this incredibly talented and prolific French woman novelist is my favorite Barry portrays Sand first and foremost as the sensitive, passionate woman she was a feminist who took to wearing men s clothing and smoking cigars, but also a Romantic pilgrim in search of the ideal love, who wrote of heroines in search of the ideal marriage partner that Sand herself was never to have Barry describes Sand secondly as the whirlwind phenomenon she also was an independent woman who virtually wrote constantly during her entire adult life until her death just before age 72, and gave the world an astonishing output of novels, plays, travel memoirs, political philosophy, and an autobiography Barry is candid about depicting Sand s affairs with her numerous lovers including Alfred de Musset, Proper Merrimee, her divorce attorney, an Italian doctor, and her children s tutor He describes, however, how her affair with composer Frederic Chopin was her longest and most romantic liaison even though it eventually ended badly I was so grateful that the writers of the wonderful six hour Masterpiece Theater dramatization of Sand s life shown in 1976 chose this biography for the basis of their series Their title also was Infamous Woman. Unfortunately, this series seems to have become unavailable over the decades Keep looking for it on on line book and film sites, though You never know when great stuff like this from the past will turn up.
