George Sand - LIFE STORIES
 
 
7/1/1804     George Sand, Chopin
On this day in 1804 George Sand (Aurore Dupin) was born. Sand wrote almost a hundred novels and plays but it is the dare of her life that now attracts most attention -- her cross-dressing, her cigars, her feminism, her bisexuality, her relationships with Chopin and other leading figures (de Musset, Delacroix, Flaubert, Balzac, Liszt) in literary-artistic Paris.

Encyclopedia of 1848 Revolutions
A short biography that focuses on Sand's political life and revolutionary activities.

"'I am by nature poetic and not legislative, war-like if necessary, but never parliamentary,' she had written in the late 1830s. Ten years later, this remark adequately describes her stance during the revolution. Deeply engaged ideologically, she nevertheless remained aloof from direct participation in the street uprisings."
Friends of George Sand
Offers information about The George Sand Association and scholarly journal, a bibliography, links, and a handful of French-language essays on Sand and other figures.

The composer who never grew up
A review of Chopin's Funeral by Benita Eisler (Little, Brown, 2003) published in the Guardian Unlimited, which offers insight into the relationship of Fryderyk Chopin and his lover, George Sand.

"It is hard not to conclude that the most significant relationship of Chopin's life - with the older, more experienced George Sand - was in some ways infantilising. Although his first impressions of her were far from flattering - 'What an unattractive woman La Sand is. Is she really a woman?' - he was ultimately unable to resist her overwhelming personality because it answered his neediness. She took the reins and managed his life, creating the circumstances in which he could work and fussing over his failing health."
