<p>Abstract:</p><p>Though Chateaubriand is known as a great writer of exile, his memoirs present many instances of homecoming: his own in 1800, and those of Louis XVIII, his brother the comte d'Artois, and the remaining <i>Ã©migrÃ©s</i> in 1814. This article reads Chateaubriand's treatment of these homecomings in his memoirs alongside his political writings of 1814â18 to consider how Chateaubriand presents them as moments of national identity-crisis, and retrospectively adopts in the memoirs some of the very positions he had rejected under the Restoration. It also considers these themes in the newspaper <i>Le Conservateur</i>, whose founding in 1818 coincided with the final departure of the foreign troops from France. Using the central concept of "repatriation," I consider how Chateaubriand presented himself as the apostle of a unified image of Frenchness; yet also how that image was undermined by his own collaborators, who consistently underscored the irremediably fractured state of the fatherland.</p>
