About the Author

Manon Mathias was born and raised in Cardiff. She completed her undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at Trinity College, University of Oxford, including a D.Phil. entitled 'Apprendre a voir: The quest for insight in George Sand's novels'. She has held posts at the University of Oxford and Bangor University, and is currently Lecturer in French at the University of Aberdeen. Having published widely on George Sand and co-edited Display and Disguise (Peter Lang, 2011), she is now focusing on the connections between the novel and the natural sciences in Sand and other authors.


Manon Mathias's elegant and insightful study, Vision in the Novels of George Sand, presents a scrupulously researched and beautifully written exploration of the ideas of physical and abstract vision in George Sand's oeuvre. Going far beyond its modest title both in the scope of its analyses and in its intellectual range, Mathias's monograph brings refreshing new perspectives to our understanding of the most important female author in nineteenth-century France ... makes a distinctive contribution to our ways of thinking about Sand and the nineteenth-century French novel. * Alexandra K. Wettlaufer, Tulsa Studies in Women's Literature *
