Om författaren

George Sand began life as Aurore Dupin, the daughter of a count and a dressmaker. Educated both on her aristocratic grandmother's estate and in a Parisian convent, at 18 she married Casimer Dudevant, a provincial gentleman whose rough temperament was the opposite of her own, and from whom she visa mer obtained a separation several years later. At 31 she moved to Paris, where she changed her name and plunged into the bohemian world of French romanticism. Frequently dressed in men's clothing, she participated actively in literary debates, cultural events, and even the revolution of 1848. Sand was friend and correspondent with many of the major artists and writers of her age, including Balzac, Flaubert, and Liszt. Her love affairs with the poet Musset and the composer Chopin were the stuff of legend, chronicled in her own Story of My Life. Sand's immensely popular novels ranged from sentimental stories of wronged women, to utopian socialist fictions, such as her masterpiece in Consuelo, 1842, to explorations of pastoral themes written when she retired, late in life, to her estate in Berry. Though frequently dismissed as overblown or too sentimental, Sand's fiction has recently undergone a revaluation, emerging as an influential body of women's writing. As both a writer and an intellectual personality, Sand is a central figure in nineteenth-century French cultural life. George Sand died in 1876 (Bowker Author Biography) visa färre

Kort biografi
George Sand, the pen name of Amandine Aurore Lucile Dupin, was raised by her paternal grandmother, Marie Aurore de Saxe, and educated partly at a convent. In 1822, at the age of 18, she married Baron Casimir Dudevant, with whom she had two children. In 1831, she left her husband and went to Paris, where she wore male attire, smoked in public, and adopted a male pseudonym, among her other gender-defying activities. She had a nearly 10-year love affair with Frédéric Chopin. She became one of the most popular writers in Europe in her own lifetime, and is recognized today as one of the most notable writers of the European Romantic era.



Explica que fent recorregut amb carro-mat una nena acompanyada del seu pare que se li ha mort la mare està molt malalta i passen la nit en un castell derruït on ella té unes visions. Una vegada adulta li agrada molt seguir l'ofici del seu pare que és pintor i ens explica les dificultats que té amb la seva madrastra així com que li reconeguin la seva art. Una noia molt bona persona. Escrit ple de sentiments.

arvalho, belo carvalho, não me expulse. Se eu descer, os lobos que correm na noite irão me comer.
– Saia, Emmi, saia! – retrucou a voz, ainda mais suave.

– Belo carvalho falante – Emmi retrucou também, num tom de súplica –, não me mande para os lobos. Você me salvou dos porcos, foi bonzinho comigo, continue assim. Sou um pobre menino infeliz, não posso nem quero lhe causar mal algum. Acolha-me esta noite: se quiser, irei embora pela manhã.

A voz não retrucou mais, e a lua prateou brandamente as folhas. Emmi concluiu que lhe fora permitido ficar, ou, então, que sonhara as palavras que pensava ter ouvido. Adormeceu – e, coisa estranha, não sonhou mais e dormiu a sono solto até o amanhecer.”

Escrito no século XIX, O carvalho falante conta as aventuras de um guardador de porcos que, para fugir de uma vida de rejeição e sofrimento, passa a viver no oco de uma árvore encantada.

Marianne is worth reading for its historical perspectives on the value of females,
notable in that Marianne decides to marry the man who has so silently misjudged her.

Not only is Andre depressed and totally self absorbed,
but he has no work, no desire to support himself, and so lives dependent on his Mother
which will transfer to complete dependence on Marianne.

Independent Marianne, judged eccentric because she loves solitude and riding her horse alone,
deserves a stronger mate. Love does not always conquer all...

Why Marianne would choose to marry this guy instead of the more accomplished and fun,
though shallow, Philippe, still feels false.

Where is Henry David Thoreau when he is obviously needed?!?

(Story is preceded by one of the longest introductions ever = 78 pages.)
