Aubrey (korrick) | 2004 comments Indiana, George Sand [(Amantine Aurore Lucile Dupin aka Baroness Dudevant)], translated from French by George Burnham Ives, 1832, France, NOVEL

"...He believes that "women are made to obey, not to advise"; Indiana is submissive, but "it was the silence and submissiveness of the slave who has made of hatred a virtue and of unhappiness a merit."...When one character advises, "Do not break the chains that bind you to society, respect its laws if they protect you, accept its judgments if they are fair to you: but if some day it calumniates you and spurns you, have pride enough to do without it," the reader is reminded the George Sand knew what she was talking about."

(E.B, p. 356)
