The Return of Martin Guerre
The Return of Martin Guerre | Natalie Zemon Davis, Martin Guerre, Arnault Du Tilh
6 posts | 8 read | 3 to read
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 TiIh, 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.

I loved this dive into this early case of identity theft. I just wish Bertrande had left us her version of events!

I‘ve been fascinated by the story of Martin Guerre for years, so diving in to this today makes me happy.

1️⃣ With that choice, non-fiction, for work. Because I'm a historian and because good history very rarely makes for good fiction, i.e. historical fiction drives me up the wall. The tagged book being the exception.
2️⃣ Star Trek, of course, always. 🖖

The colors are faded, the book well-loved. Natalie Zemon Davis inspired me to write the kind of history I felt in my bones I need to write.

CrowCAH It's good to have a writing tutor/inspiration! Mine is Jane Austen. 😄 6y

Reading for class. I assigned it so I should probably read it.
