George Sand

Standard Name: Sand, George
Birth Name: Amantine Aurore Lucile Dupin
Married Name: Amantine Aurore Lucile Dudevant
Pseudonym: George Sand
French writer George Sand (Aurore Dudevant) wrote over one hundred novels and plays. Her correspondence fills twenty-five volumes. She averaged two novels a year after 1831. British writers including Elizabeth Barrett Browning and George Eliot were strongly influenced by her writing, and her notorious life became one of the benchmarks by which women writers were judged.
