This paper analyzes George Sand’s famous pastoral trilogy under five aspects. First, affection for the countryside. She’s excellent at describing the countryside, from the great scene of nature to the details of peasants’ daily life. Second, optimistic romanticism. Her joyful words and the comparison with authors like Chateaubriand and Musset show her optimistic romanticism. Third, feminism. There’s a sprout of feminism growing in her pastoral trilogy. It encourages women to pursue their happiness without considering the hindrances of traditional and ethical opinions. Fourth, love. Love crosses the stories in George Sand’s pastoral trilogy, creates a utopian world in her heart, where everyone loves each other and lives happily. Fifth, democracy. George Sand expresses her love and hatred by drawing, with a democratic color, a sharp contrast between the virtue of honest peasants and the vice of corrupt bourgeois.
