Yale University Press

This chapter focuses on the February Revolution of 1848 and the advent of the Second Republic, which roused George Sand from the dejection into which the nightmare of family events had cast her. Adding to the sordid saga of her recently married daughter, Maurice had recently moved to Paris to participate in the overthrow of King Louis Philippe, leaving her fearful and bereft. Worried of her son's safety, she moved in with Maurice on rue Conde in Paris and took up the cause of the dawning republic as soon as news of the popular uprising of February and the abdication of the king reached the provinces. Soon after her arrival in the capital, Sand proclaimed, “The Republic is the best of families, the people are the best of friends. One mustn't think of another thing.” .
