The Return of Martin Guerreby Natalie Zemon Davis, Natalie Z. Davis
Pub. Date: 09/28/1983
Publisher: Harvard University Press
The clever peasant Arnaud du Tilh had almost won his case, when a man with a wooden leg swaggered into the French courtroom, denounced du Tilh, and reestablished his claim to the identity, property, and wife of Martin Guerre. This book, by the noted historian who served as a consultant for the film, adds new dimensions to this famous legend.
