Several novels George Sand wrote during the 1840s – when her political view was progressively becoming more radical – are centred on characters promoting a utopian socialist project without actually belonging to utopian fiction. This article intends to explore semantic scope and fictional use of some recurring narrational themes such as the “park”, the “dream” and the “convivial table”. These themes work as real literary topoi condensing and expressing a utopian meaning. By interweaving with commonplaces belonging to the utopian tradition, they renew them with respect to the emerging spiritual power ascribed to poets and in the light of the new romantic sensibility.
