The Wife Of Martin Guerre - Arnaud du Tilh, a rogue and an impostor, deserved punishment for his crimes, and that is what he received. Arnaud, a man once thought by people to be unmistakably Martin Guerre, was sentenced to death. Perhaps in this day an age, a punishment such as this would be excessively severe, however in Arnaud's time it was considered just.

Peasant Lifestyle In Davis´ The Return of Martin Guerre - ... It is stated, “What was really different from the Basque country was the way the land moved, both in inheritance and in sales. Here in the plain below the Pyrenees there was very little effort among the common people to hold the family property together” (Davis 11). Davis is doing a successful job of portraying property as economic means but also as a way of social standing. Davis also focuses on the different social levels apparent in peasant life. “At its top were the affluent families, like the Banquels and after them the Rols, who had many parcels of property scattered throughout Artigat, some oh which they farmed themselves and some rented out to other families for fixed payments or a share of the crop” (Davis 12)....   [tags: sixteenth century, France, Natalie Zemon Davis]

Book Review of "The Return of Martin Guerre" - In The Return of Martin Guerre, one man's impersonation of an heir from an influential peasant family in the French village of Artigat ultimately leads to his public execution.

Set in a time and place where a hardly discernible line separated proper behavior from that which was grounds for death, du Tilh was guilty of more than one serious charge....   [tags: Book Reviews] 817 words

The Imposter's Accomplice - Medieval women are typically portrayed as being submissive and compliant, but is this portrayal true and unanimous. Is it possible that some women may have had more influence over their social circumstances. Natalie Davis’s “The Return of Martin Guerre” certainly seems to indicate that women were capable of more than housework and childbearing. The woman in question of such behavior is Bertrande de Rols, a peasant woman who allows an imposter to replace her missing husband for her own benefit. Yet in contrast to this account, Robert Finlay, author of “The Refashioning of Martin Guerre, claims that Bertrande had no real intent in her actions and that she was simply mislead by the imposter....   [tags: Literary Analysis ]

The Case of the Black Donnellys - The case of the so-called “Black Donnellys” is indicative of social and community relations during the nineteenth century in Upper Canada.

The arson of the Donnelly's home, as well as James Senior's imprisonment demonstrate the role of these two powers in society. I will argue that Upper Canada during the mid to late nineteenth century reacted to increased crime with both community power, in the form of vigilante justice, and legitimate authority, in the form of the penitentiary system; this uptick in crime coincided with settlement of the land by British emigrants....   [tags: Sociology ]

For Whom the Bell Tolls: A Study of Psychology - When many think of wars, the first thought that comes to mind is the land which was fought over and which side won.

Drawing from his own observation and experiences as an ambulance driver, Hemingway shows the psychological damage of war through the destruction of human lives, uncommitted relationships, and lack of confidence....   [tags: essays research papers] 1218 words

Literary and Political Appropriations of Eça de Queirós’s Work: a Contribution to the Study of Portuguese Literary Canon - Over the past century Eça de Queirós has become part of the Portuguese literary canon. Whatever the perspective we take into account, Eça comes across as one of the most celebrated and discussed writers of Portuguese language. As early as the late nineteenth century (with the first Spanish translations of his writings ), Eça’s work has been the object of a comparatively large and enthusiastic reception abroad, on a par only with Camões, Pessoa, and, most recently, Saramago. In 2000, the Camões commemorative issue of the death of the novelist registers (from 1975 onwards) more than forty-five translations in eighteen different languages and more than a hundred texts of critical appreciation in languages other than Portuguese ....   [tags: Language]

Restructuring Catholic High School’s Administration Using the President-Principal Model - Catholic High Schools in the United States look very different than they did in the years before the Second Vatican Council, 1962-1965, changed the face of the Catholic Church all over the world. One of the most noticeable changes that has taken place is that the schools are now predominantly run and staffed by lay, non-religious, persons. The most significant reasons for this change are the decline in religious vocations since the Second Vatican Council as well as the retirement of the religious men and women who ran and taught in the schools for so many years....   [tags: Catholic Education, private schools]

Generation and Culture in Doce cuentos peregrinos -     An enormous sea serpent nailed by the neck to the door frame is also nailed at the beginning of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's "El verano felíz de la Señora Forbes" from his novel "Doce cuentos peregrinos." This short story is an eloquent representation of the unconscious state of mind of dominance in which the result of previous concepts of life and costumes achieved are just vague figures trying to make up a non-abstract drawing that represent power. Generations and cultures are being confronted, characteristic of a dense ambient in which two different manners of applying the rules of society provoke an ironic reaction of rebellion that apply to a macrocosm....   [tags: Garcia Marquez, Doce cuentos peregrinos]

This sportsman like code is based on the admiration of the physical virtues of courage and endurance. While not necessary for sustaining society, the code conforms the characters to one set of characteristics (McCaffery 237). One key element of this code is stoic endurance in the face of calamity. Hemingway's code heroes posses a grin-and-bear it attitude even in the most dire of tragedies and bounce back seemingly unaffected (McCaffery 237)....   [tags: Biography Biographies Essays]

Puerto Rico Under American Rule - Puerto Rico Under American Rule The United States gained control of the island of Puerto Rico as a result of the Spanish American war in 1898, claiming its intention to "free" the island from Spanish colonialism.
