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.

Few stories are more captivating than the one told by Natalie Zemon Davis in The Return of Martin Guerre. Basing her research on records of a bizarre court case that occurred in 16th-century France, she uses the tale of a missing soldier - whose disappearance threatens the livelihood of his peasant wife - to explore complex social issues. Davis takes rich material - dramatic enough to have been the basis of two major films - and uses it to explore issues of identity, women's role in peasant society, the interior lives of the poor, and the structure of village society, all of them topics that had previously proved difficult for historians to grapple with. Davis displays fine qualities of reasoning throughout - not only in constructing her own narrative, but also in persuading her readers of her point of view. Her work is also a fine example of good interpretation - practically every document in the case needs to be assessed for issues of meaning.

"So ist unsere Liebe, weil wir immer getrennt voneinander lebten und wegen der wechselseitigen Forderungen, die nie erfüllt wurden, nur wie eine Liebe von weither geblieben, so als sei es nur ein Einsammeln von Begegnungen und gemeinsamen Erlebnissen gewesen und nie ein Zusammensein." Wie in einem Rondo, in traurigen und in komischen Variationen, kehrt in diesem Roman das Thema der Vergeblichkeit wieder. Erzählt wird die Geschichte von Vater und Tochter. Wie in ihrem preisgekrönten "Roman von einem Kinde" erklärt sich der "Zauber dieser verblüffend einfachen Prosa" (Marcel Reich-Ranicki) aus der Spannung zwischen ihrer Melancholie und den oft komischen Wandlungen des Lebens.
