Read full description of the books:
Atala', published in 1801, tells the tragic tale of the eponymous heroine: a mixed-race Christian daughter of a Native American chief. She saves the captured Chactas and tragically falls in love with one of them. 'René', published the following year, is the seminal portrait of the sensitive and world-weary young Romantic hero who attempts to flee civilization and pursue a life in the wilderness of Louisiana. Referred to by their author as his “passionate twins” and intended to provide an illustration of the original, primitive virtues of Christianity, the two novellas were hugely successful in their time, thanks to their vivid depictions of exotic locations and their attunement to the emotional sensitivities of the age. Even more significantly, they helped shape European Romantic archetypes which would bear resonance throughout the nineteenth century and profoundly mark its literature and art in general.
