 About the Book 

This study, while quite dated in that the author fights a battle on behalf of Sands rightful place as a 19th C French writer that has since been won (Sands place is fairly secure and recognized by now), nonetheless offers the reader a) a vision of the distance we have come, b) strong arguments for a feminist reading of Sand, c) thorough rebuttal to scurrilous attacks on Sand, and d) a set of fundamental references to Sands works and criticism that may have been superseded by many more recent works in the Sand industry. Frankly, I cannot pretend to have finished reading this work since I will return to it again and again as a fundamental reference.
