The Master Pipers by George Sand (Paperback, 1994).

For years, artist William O'Connor has traveled the globe, studying dragons in their natural environments. His findings, field notes and sketches have been compiled for the first time into this single, beautifully illustrated compendium-a natural and cultural history of the beasts as well as a step-by-step drawing workshop.

The young George Sand, née Aurore, grows up as the French Revolution and Terror, Napolean’s rise and fall, war, life in a. .Anna Faktorovich presents an original paradigm, which belies the usual myths about George Sand.

The young George Sand, née Aurore, grows up as the French Revolution and Terror, Napolean’s rise and fall, war, life in a convent but also in Parisian society all roll by, but not merely as background, since Aurore participates as a child, adolescent, nubile young woman (whom relatives try to marry off), and adult, who does marry, bears children, and. has many (erotic) affairs (as does her husband, naturally). Hugo, Chopin, de Musset, and other well-known personages show up, as Sand writes and publishes her novels.

Sand's literary debut came as a result of a collaboration with the writer Jules Sandeau. They published several stories together, signing them "Jules Sand. Sand's first published novel, Rose et Blanche (1831), was written in collaboration with Sandeau Poli.

The Master Pipers (1852) is a love story set in the contrasting landscapes of the Berry and Bourbonnais regions in central France. Sand's brilliant exploration of the developing relationships of two sets of lovers underlines her belief that women should be treated as equals to their partners in marriage. Written in the aftermath of the failed revolution of 1848, the novel's political and social message, though underplayed, is clear: only by combining what is best in French peasant stock with a code of non-violence will there be any possibility of the profound social change for which Sand yearned. This new translation captures the freshness and variety of Sand's style, while the notes and maps give clear guidance on the historical, geographical, and biographical background to the novel.
Wow, wah, lah, voila ! entranced by George Sand am I.
She invented not only Ethnomusicology and the art of novel-writing, but also wrote a very personal letter to me, a master piper of Irish pipes. Of dupin extraction. You couldnt make us up!!

A rare, so excellent English translation . maps, dates ,included
.... and in order to live well, you don't live at all.'

In the same pastoral environment as 'The Devil's Pool' George Sand weaves a marvellous rural tale. It reflects on the power of music, but also on how vulnerable it can make people. When the baby Charlie was introduced more than half way through the novel, I was nonplussed and uncomfortable with the secrecy surrounding the child. Why did the narrator keep back from us the reasons for the secrecy? Of course, the secret was being kept from the narrator so it reflected his knowledge at the time, if not at the time he told the story. Maybe the story was a bit contrived, but the reason for the secret is quite reasonable.

The dramatic resolution of the story is not only contrived, but it is also melodramatic. And the final outcome for one of the characters is gloomy - the man left out. I did enjoy the novel - Sand is a wonderful story teller and she recreated (represented?) a world I can never experience except through words of the time.

One of her best novels. The story just swept me up.

Quite an interesting look at the customs of French peasantry, such as a license was needed to play music. Unthinkable today. I wonder if Joseph's selfish devotion to music mirrored Sand's feelings in regard to Chopin, the great love of her life. Hard to say because from what I've read, Chopin was devoted to her. But I'd also imagine he was even more devoted to his music.

Again, Sand creates strong female characters (Brulette, Therence and even Mariton) who follow their own minds despite social conventions of the time.
