James, H. (n.d.). George Sand. Retrieved from

Excerpt: AMONG the eulogies and dissertations called forth by the death of the great writer who shared with Victor Hugo the honour of literary pre?eminence in France, quite the most valuable was the short notice published in the ?Journal des Debats,? by M. Taine. In this notice the apostle of the ?milieu? and the ?moment? very justly remarked that George Sand is an exceptionally good case for the study of the pedigree of a genius?for ascertaining the part of prior generations in forming one of those minds which shed back upon them the light of glory. What renders Mme. Sand so available an example of the operation of heredity is the fact that the process went on very publicly, as one may say; that her ancestors were people of qualities at once very strongly marked and very abundantly recorded. The record has been kept in a measure by George Sand herself. When she was fifty years old she wrote her memoirs, and in this prolix and imperfect but extremely entertaining work a large space is devoted to the heroines parents and grandparents.
