Abstract:

"Acclaimed literary biographer Benita Eisler sheds new light on the many roles, triumphs, and losses that together constituted Sand's overwhelming presence. The author of nearly ninety novels, twenty-thousand letters and thousands of pages of autobiographical writings and political commentary, how did Sand also have the time to live? As Eisler reveals, hers seems like several lives - literary, political, amorous, and domestic. Earlier biographers have either cast Sand as a feminist icon or blurred her in the dynamic of "child of the century." Naked in the Marketplace captures Sand's essence - the outsized public persona and the inner woman, along with the unique and irreplaceable role she played in the history of her times."--Jacket.
