The Memoirs of Francois Rene Vicomte de Chateaubriand Volume II by François-René de Chateaubriand (1768 - 1848). Translated by Alexander Teixeira de Mattos (1865 - 1921)


Volume II of Chateaubriand's Memoirs from Beyond the Tomb, translated by Teixeira de Mattos. This volume covers the period from his return to France to fight, reluctantly, for the King, his early literary successes with many portraits of the great and the good, including Napoleon, through to his travels in the Near East in the first decade of the 19th century, all told with his characteristic blend of mordant wit and melancholy.

I'd love to DPL!
Will you be recording just "Part the Second" of this volume? I see it covers from 1800, almost where we left off in the previous audio-book.

I'll MC this for you. MW will be available shortly.

ETA: We cross posted, Rapunzelina. Were you planning to MC as well as PL?

thanks everyone. I thought I would just do the whole book, even though it does overlap with the previous project, just so it is a complete version of the book that is in project gutenberg. Noted re the intro, outro and filenames.

Both parts of Book 7 are PL OK!

While the translation is quite different, the author's way of writing comes through just as vivid, if not even more so!

Hi Nicole!

I have a couple of PL notes for Book 9:
I noticed a short repetition, around 44:00 "beneath a cedar of Lebanon"
and, around 48:01-48:25 is the intro of what would be part 2 of Book 9 and can be deleted.
