Abstract

This article uses texts published about George Sand’s “château” in Nohant published by American writers Edith Wharton and Henry James to argue for the important role played by celebrity publications in increasing the public’s awareness of the cultural importance of writer-houses, a particularly complex memorial subset of the house-museum. Wharton’s visit to Sand’s home also draws attention to the dangers inherent in exhibits highlighting the domestic life of women.
