About this product
- DescriptionIn this study, my primary concern will t be Chateaubriand, the man, but rather, the autobiographic persona in the Memoires. The narrator of the Memoires presents two sides of himself. On the one hand, there is what Proust might have, called the narrator's moi social, on the other his moi profond. Briefly my thesis is that Chateaubriand writes out of exile, and I define this term t only in physical, political and social terms but also in moral and psychological terms. The Memoires, therefore, are thing short of a portrait of the artist in exile, where the narrator projects an imaginary, romantic self that seeks affirmation through history and biography, but also through fantasy and revery.
