Abstract:The first part of the title of the article is borrowed from the afterword A for Aurora, A for Autobiography in the Slovenian translation of George Sand’s seminal work Histoire de ma vie, published by the feminist publishing house Delta, marking the bicentenary of French writer’s birth. 1 Analyzing the discourse on George Sand in the Slovenian literary field, we have observed a unique ambiguity compared to the discourse on other canonized authors and their Slovene reception. We argue that George Sand is a site of ambiguous discourse. Departing from the approaches of the renowned American historian Joan Wallach Scott, herself inspired by the Foucauldian epistemology, we are interested in how and why this discourse came into being, how the representations of George Sand were discursively established, and what contradictions are inherent in this debate.
