Publisher's Summary

Le vieux Chef Indien Chactas de la tribu des Natchez donne récit de ses jeunes années à René l'Européen. A l'aube de ses dix-sept ans, Chactas, fils adoptif d'un ancien soldat français nommé Lopez, tombe dans une embuscade tendue par les Muscoculges au bord du Mississipi. Mais Atala la Vierge, ayant embrassé la foi chrétienne et jeune fille du Chef guerrier, s'éprend du prisonnier... Ecoutant les élans de son cœur, elle l'aide à s'évader et s'enfuit avec lui...

Ce texte de Chateaubriand, qui inspira au peintre Girodet "Atala au Tombeau", l'un de ses tableaux les plus connus, forme avec René deux magnifiques joyaux littéraires précurseurs du courant des Romantiques.

    Story
    "Noble Savage?"

    Subject: a contribution to the contemporary interest in the contrast between the noble savage of Rousseau and flawed civilised man. Common humanity with virtues and defects stressed. Only Christian teachings offer hope. Interesting that union of two races prevented.
    Story: Atala both virgin saint and idealised, unattainable heroine of type found in romantic legend and Courtly Love tales. Protracted agonies of lovers, especially the deathbed description, of Victorian proportions. Slow.
    Style: highly polished and poetic.
