Overview

"Indiana" (1831) is an absorbing and vivid romantic novel, set partly in provincial France, partly in Paris, and partly on a tropical island. It tells the story of a beautiful and innocent young woman, married at 16 to a much older man. She falls passionately in love with a handsome, frivolous neighbor but discovers too late that his idea of love is quite different from her own. It is only after a series of painful experiences that she comes to appreciate the silent devotion of her loyal and protective cousin. The first novel that George Sand wrote without a collaborator, "Indiana" is not only a romance but also a powerful plea for change in the inequitable French marriage laws of the time, for better education for women, and for a new attitude to their position in society. This new translation does full justice to the passion and conviction of George Sand's writing, while Naomi Schor's introduction explores attitudes to Sand in her own time, as well as more recent feminist responses, and examines the complex patterns of imagery and relationships in the novel.

Sand, the premier 19th century French novelist, earned as much notoriety for her Bohemian lifestyle as for her more than 100 novels, plays, and essays. Her first novel, Indiana is the story of a dangerous liaison between an intelligent but naive woman trapped in a brutal marriage and a worldly young nobleman who toys with her passions.
