Le grand dessin de son auteur: A few years into her career, George Sand wrote three charming pastoral novels that are now among the most popular and enduring books in her huge oeuvre. Since Sand had inherited vadette father’s estate of Nohant in the Berry region of central France, and lived there more than she lived in Paris, she was intimately acquainted with petiite p A few years into her career, George Sand wrote three charming pastoral novels that are now among the most popular and enduring books in her huge oeuvre.
Since Sand had inherited her father’s estate of Nohant in the Berry region of central France, and lived there more than she lived in Paris, she was intimately acquainted with the peasants of the region–their daily lives, challenges, poverty, fears, folklore, etc.
Because she knew the peasants so well, her portraits of them are realistic, and do not drift off into idyll. Sand also saw in the rural lower class–despite their superstitions and primitive belifs–a nobility far superior to the artificiality of Parisian society. She also depicted the Romantic aura of the peasants’lives, richly imbuing their their daily routines and emotions, so closely linked to the rhythms of nature and the seasons, as a kind of wisdom.
La Petite Fadette begins with a description of the childhood and petife adulthood of identical twin brother Landry and Sylvanet. When Landry is sent away to work on a neighboring farm, he meets year-old Fadette, an exuberant tomboy who lives wth her grandmother, who is reputed to be a witch.
The so-called “witch craft” plays an important role in the twists and turns of this clever, alluring romantic tale. View all 3 comments.
Little Fadette (TV Movie ) – IMDb
Although I had, several years ago, read the first half and then abandoned the exercise, leaving me to start all over again with my good intentions, it was noticeable that I had stopped just before the book became more interesting, when Fadette appears on the scene, for it had not been very exciting up to the first half.
I got the impression I was reading a version of Voltaire, “It is the obstinacy of maintaining that every “La Petite Fadette” is the first novel I’ve read by George Sand. I got the impression I was reading a version of Voltaire, “It is the obstinacy of maintaining that everything is best when it is worst.
One cannot argue that Sand was lacking talent as a writer, no she excels; it’s just that she is hampered by the conventionality of the time, and underneath it all I get the petiet that there is a Emma Tenant or Jeanette Winterson lurking nearby. By this reasoning I can also fathom why she was called a feminist of her times, and yet nonetheless I am not terribly motivated to read more of Sand’s work.
I think very simply that this is such a cute book and I really love the story that George Sands wrote. Fadette was as lovely as a new sqnd wind in the scene of countryside.
I petute like the twin, too. They was so different from each other and I surprised a little bit in the end. Landry was kind-hearted as he was before and Sylvainet changed so much. Finally, a happy opening ending made everything al be like a fairy tale. I smile for all of them. O piuttosto sono entrambi innamorati del loro essere unici, uguali ed inseparabili? Per me questo ha rappresentato, un piccolo passo verso il mondo della fantasia.
Der Roman ist aber sprachlich gut konstruiert. Why would I read an l novel by a French woman Aurore Dupin was Sand’s given namemost famous, probably, for her affair with Fredric Chopin and many others? She led a full life which spurned the conventions of the time about what it was proper for a woman to do.
She was a prolific, if uneven writer whose fiction grew directly out of her experiences. Usually, it’s the other way around; I get interested in an author’s life after experiencing what has been written. I tried to correct this imbalance by reading one of her shorter novels, a bucolic country romance between two teenagers, Fanchon, who lives with her mother and grandmother in a remote cottage, and Landry, from a respectable farm family. The conflict occurs when Landry gradually gets to know Fanchon and realizes that she is not the wild sanf who is teased as geore a sorceress, wearing rough clothing and acting decidedly unfeminine.
He is expected to be fsdette to more socially acceptable girls, but it’s only Fanchon that he likes. They are in love but too fadetfe to be married, and so Landry has to navigate between community mores and his attraction to Fanchon. Complicating matters even more is his twin brother Sylvain, who is morbidly jealous of any situation gekrge draws his brother away from him. The novel reflects a sympathy for different perspectives without oversimplifying any aspect of them.
There is an almost incestuous relationship between the two brothers, and while Fanchon extricates himself, it’s not so clear that Sylvain ever adjusts fully to the loss of a brother.
Fanchon has long talks with him, and while he comes to like and respect her, he never finds a woman for himself, nor is he interested in other women.
Fanchon’s mother is a woman of low repute, having been accused of running off with soldiers, as well as neglecting Fanchon’s younger brother.
La petite Fadette by George Sand
Fanchon loves her mother but she has reservations about her behavior. If anything she overreacts to her mother’s shortcomings, and is the embodiment of virtue. At one point the gossip is that she’s pregnant, a situation she is careful to avoid, not so much for her sake, as for Landry’s Near the book’s end, Fanchon and Landry separate for a year, to prove to themselves and to the community that their love is durable and lasting.
Fanchon goes out of her way to ingratiate herself with Landry’s family, particularly Landry’ father. The story has a conventional happy ending, but there are darker aspects of the story that are usually glossed over, one instance being Fanchon’s giving up of her independence, another being the frustrated outcome of Sylvain’s life.
All of this suggests, I think, some of Sand’s concerns – women reacting against rigid expectations, the powerful family forces that influence an individual, and the relativity of some of our moral expectations. Sand obviously sympathizes with her characters, as does the reader and based on this novel, I think she’s a satisfying and challenging writer. Une qui parle de l’amour entre deux jumeaux qui s’aiment plus que de raison et qui ne peuvent vivre l’un sans l’autre, au grand malheur de leurs parents.
Cet amour est presque malsain, si je puisse dire. Celle-ci n’est pas du tout bien vue par le village.
C’est une belle preuve d’amour fraternelle. Cela change des livres qu’on lit de nos jours. Un bon livre, surtout qu’il ne m’a rien couter. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

Il mio primo incontro con l’Amore Soltanto rivedere la copertina di questo libro mi ha provocato un fremito di eccitazione e ricordi. Mi era stato regalato da un’amica di famiglia che voleva ripulire la cantina. A really charming love story. I liked how the heroine was intelligent, had strong morals, spoke her mind, and didn’t get her man at least initially based on some sort of extraordinary physical beauty.
But I felt a little sad for Sylvinet all throughout the book, especially at the end. Overall, though, it was a good book: Oct 05, Daria rated it really liked it Shelves: Sand is a good writer, and La petite fadette is a charming, feel-good fairytale. The hero is chivalrous and the heroine has a hidden heart of gold. Fadette herself does get rather boring towards the end of the story forbidden love is always the best sort of literary lovebut the reader follows all the tumultuous, pastoral romance across the novel’s pages with an anxious, merry sort of pleasure.

She is regarded as the first French female novelist to gain a major reputation. Sand’s reputation came into question when she began sporting men’s clothing Amantine Aurore Lucile Dupin, later Baroness French: Sand’s reputation came into question when she began sporting men’s clothing in public — which she justified by the clothes being far sturdier and less expensive than the typical dress of a noblewoman at the time.
In addition to being comfortable, Sand’s male dress enabled her to circulate more freely in Paris than most of her female contemporaries could, and gave her increased access to venues from which women were often barred — even women of her social standing.
