Amantine-Lucile Aurore was born in Paris, France back in 1804. She was mostly raised by her grandmother, Marie-Aurore de Saxe, near Nohant. At 18 she married Casimir and the marriage bore two children, Maurice and Solagne. In early 1831 she left her husband and entered upon a four or five-year period of “romantic rebellion”. She entered into several loves affairs including one with another woman, Marie Dorval.

Her first published novel happened in 1831. She drew upon her childhood experiences of the countryside. Strange for her time she began sporting men’s clothing in public. However, she complained that men’s clothing was a lot less expensive than women’s clothing of the same or superior quality.   Sorry if you haven’t figured it out by now I’m writing about Anantine-Lucile Aurore Dupin. Still don’t recognize the name, that’s okay maybe you’ll recognize her pseudonym name of George Sand. She publicized romantic affairs with a number of artists including Frederic Chopin and writer Alfred de Musset. Some of her most noted works include Rose et Blanche, Indiana, La Mare au Diable and La Petite Fadette. She did in 1876 at 71.

Good morning James.  I had no clue until you gave the George Sand name and then the information flooded in from the back recesses of my mind.

I knew about George Sand.  She had to write under a male pseudonym to be published, one of her famous quotes was,

There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved.  Happy Sunday.  A
