François-René, vicomte de Chateaubriand[N 1], né à Saint-Malo le 4 septembre 1768 et mort à Paris le 4 juillet 1848, est un écrivain et homme politique français. Il est considéré comme l'un des précurseurs du romantisme français et l'un des grands noms de la littérature française. https://fr.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/François-René_de_Chateaubriand

French writer, politician, diplomat and historian who is considered the founder of Romanticism in French literature. Descended from an old aristocratic family from Brittany, Chateaubriand was a royalist by political disposition; in an age when a number of intellectuals turned against the Church, he authored the Génie du christianisme in defense of the Catholic faith. His works include the autobiography Mémoires d'Outre-Tombe ("Memoirs from Beyond the Grave", published posthumously in 1849–1850).
