George Sand Biography
George Sand was the pseudonym of Amantine Lucile Aurore Dupin, who was a French novelist. After her marriage with Baron Casimir Dudevant at a young age, she visited Paris alone in quest of true love and economic independence. Her experience of developing a number of relationships with different men in Paris acted as an inspiration for several of her novels. Almost all of her novels depict love stories of the people whom she knew in real life. She presented those stories in a realistic manner. In later period of her life, she used to describe deplorable condition of working class people through her novels like ‘Consuelo’. Her novels like "La Mare au diable" and "La Petite Fadette" present a clear picture of country life and she wrote most of these novels while living at Nohant. Being a democrat, she reflected her political views through her literary works. Though her writings represent her feministic attitude, yet she never wrote in support of political equality of women. Rather, she defended the independence of women in choosing their love objects. She spent her later years surrounded by her grandchildren for whom she authored "Tales of a Grandmother".
