This Woman, This Man (Elle et Lui)

This Woman, This Man (Elle et Lui)

Author: George Sand

Translator: Graham Anderson   Cover design: Marie Lane  

George Sand's fictionalised account of her notorious affair with the poet Alfred de Musset caused a sensation on its publication two years after his death, in 1859. It also prompted a volley of claim and counter-claim: two more novels rapidly appeared in the following months, Lui Et Elle, by Musset’s brother, defending his reputation; and Lui, by Louise Colet, Flaubert’s former mistress and briefly Musset’s. Then the journalists and commentators of the day joined in, with Eux, by Gaston Lavalley, and Eux Et Elles, by Adolphe de Lescure, satirising the whole sordid business.
