About Book

Book Description
Mauprat (1837) by George Sand is the complex love story of the initially wild and uneducated Bernard de Mauprat and his second cousin, the lovely and enlightened Edmée de Mauprat whose influence transforms him.

The philosophy, culture, and social ideals of Rousseau are represented by George Sand in the figure of Edmée, with reason, literacy, and virtue triumphing over ignorance and cruelty. The emerging result is a new kind of equality, the Revolutionary French egalité, not merely between the social strata of men but between the sexes.

A rich, idealist, and romantic classic from the pen of one of the earliest great feminist authors.

Download Description
Napoleon in exile declared that were he again on the throne he should make a point of spending two hours a day in conversation with women, from whom there was much to be learnt. He had, no doubt, several types of women in mind, but it is more than probable that the banishment of Madame de Stael rose before him as one of the mistakes in his career. It was not that he showed lack of judgment merely by the persecution of a rare talent, but by failing to see that the rare talent was pointing out truths very valuable to his own safety.
