In this little-known novella published in the last year of her life, Sand takes the timeless theme of a younger woman in love with an older man to create a romance with a feminist twist. Her vivacious heroine is both the authorís ideal of female emancipation and a subtle attack on that other Marianne, the French Republicís convention-bound Muse.
An exciting opportunity for one last glimpse of Sandís genius, Marianne offers the reader a chance to rediscover one of the worldís outstanding writers.
