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.
