(p.xi) Introduction
George Sand

Elizabeth Harlan

Yale University Press

This book is about George Sand, a prolific writer who not only dreamed of a liberated life but lived it. Born Amandine Aurore Lucile Dupin in Paris in 1804, she grew up to become a successful, if controversial, author who left her husband, took lovers, adopted a male pseudonym, fought for and regained custody of her children and possession of her home, founded journals, and participated in the political life of her nation. She died shortly before her seventy-second birthday surrounded by her adoring son, Maurice, his wife and two daughters, and her estranged daughter, Solange. During the course of Sand's career, she produced more than ninety novels, dozens of novellas, scores of plays, thousands of pages of autobiography, tomes of commentary and criticism, hundreds of articles, numerous travel journals, and a correspondence comprising some twenty thousand extant letters.

Keywords:   writer, George Sand, Solange, author, autobiography, Maurice
