George Eliot and George Sand

2nd edition


Daniel Vitaglione

A long overdue comparison of the two most famous women novelists of the nineteenth century, this interesting study compares Eliot and Sand, their religious and social ideals, their aesthetic principles, and their conception of women. It also documents, in light of recently discovered letters, the relationship between George Henry Lewes and Sand as well as the influence of Sand on Eliot's intellectual and artistic development.
