Affectivité et thérapeutique de la musique dans "Adriani" de George Sand

  • This article explores the relations between affects and music in George Sand's novel "Adriani" (1853). It examines how the figuration of music highlights the importance of emotions, as they shift from aesthetic (admiration) to moral (compassion), in her protagonists' moral transformations. However, Sand's transposition of an imaginary musical world in the novel is part and parcel of a much more ambitious project, that of social transformations, notably of relations between the sexes. It is through their dialogue in and via music that her heroes discover each other and themselves, while their intimate trajectories enable the reader to imagine interpersonal relations among equals founded on emotional, intellectual and social reciprocity.
