When I read this book in July of 1979 I said: "This is the first volume of the only full scale biography of Chateaubriand in any language. It covers his ancestry (from 1066!), his birth on Sept 4, 1768, and his life up to 1793, including his experience in the Revolution and his trip to the US. I much like Chateaubriand's flamboyant language, and much of this book echoes it. It is a good book. The wish the other two volumes were published." I have never seen anything of susequenst volumes, and do not know if they exist. Does anyone? ( )
