“The Burial of Atala” (1808)
“Atala, ou Les Amours de deux sauvages dans le desert” is an early novella by François-René de Chateaubriand, first published on 2 April 1801. The work, inspired by his travels in North America, had an immense impact on early Romanticism, and went through five editions in its first year.
“Today, the principles of industrial civilization should be fought with the same relentless vigor as was the ancien régime by the encyclopedists. But the struggle will be harder because the mode of existence brought to us by technology is as pleasant as the habit of taking alcohol, opium, or cocaine.” — Alexis Carrel, 1935
