The following entries are adapted from a bibliography prepared by Susan Grujevski for her paper “How successfully did Natalie Davis interpret the "hidden world of peasant sentiment and aspiration" in Martin Guerre?” The citations follow the style of the examples in Rampolla’s A Pocket Guide to Writing in History. The citations are formated using the Chicago Manual of Style 16th edition.
Davis, Natalie Zemon. The Return of Martin Guerre. Harmondsworth: Penguin, 1985.
This narrative is the main focus of my argument. A valuable contribution to the understanding of the Martin Guerre story, with considerable detail and
references to ambiguities which create a large number of interesting and innovative approaches to the study of sixteenth-century French peasantry.
JOURNAL ARTICLE Example:
Davis, Natalie Zemon. “On the Lame.” American Historical Review 93, no.3 (1988): 572-603.
In this article, Davis thoroughly defends her interpretation of the Martin Guerre story, outlining the reasoning behind her approaches, and contributing
more complexity to her characterizations. This article informed much of my approach to Davis’ interpretation.
Pringle, Helen and Elizabeth W. Prior. “Inventing Martin Guerre: An Interview with Natalie Zemon Davis.” Southern Review 19, no. 3 (1986): 229-241.
Davis makes clear her intentions to depict the story of Martin Guerre as one revealing many ambiguities. A notable element of this interview was
the influence on Davis when observing Gerard Depardieu assume his role for the movie. Entertaining to read Davis’ thoughts in the form of an
interview, expressed in a simple and direct manner, which assisted my understanding of her approaches to The Return of Martin Guerre.
