Memoirs From Beyond The Tomb




Memoirs tells of exotic adventures to the furthermost points of the globe, of heroic battles and political struggles, and of the loneliness of a restless soul. It is permeated by a sense of wonder for nature and the human spirit, and haunted by the desire to tame a fleeting world.

The most enjoyable, glamorous and gripping of all 19th-century autobiographies - a tumultuous account of France hit by wave after wave of revolutions
Memoirs from Beyond the Tomb is the greatest and most influential of all French autobiographies - an extraordinary, highly entertaining account of a uniquely adventurous and frenzied life. Chateaubriand gives a superb narrative of the major events of his life - which spanned the French Revolution, the Napoleonic Era and the uneasy period that led up to the Revolution of 1830.
