Mauprat (1837) is the romantic tale of a "wild" man civilized by the woman he loves. Deeply engaged with Rousseau's pedagogical treatise 'Emile, and with contemporary debate concerning inherited and acquired traits and tendencies, Mauprat is an expression of Sand's Utopian vision of a
relationship governed by free choice and equality. Naomi Schor's introduction explores these and other aspects of the novel, while Sylvia Raphael's new translation does full justice to the powerfully descriptive qualities of one of George Sand's most exciting and absorbing novels.
