In this paper you are asked to look at the concept of identity and how it plays out in The Return of Martin Guerre. Since literacy was mostly reserved for people of upper class, how was someone able to prove their identity? There was no form of photo ID, social security card, or proof of existence besides the church. In the reading, it was very easy for Arnaud to impersonate Martin Guerre based on looks and what the village people told him. What is identity in the 1500s and what does someone need in order to prove their identity? While examing the concept of identity in the 1500’s you should also discuss what Bertrande de Rols’ social and economic motives were for lying about the “new” Martin Guerre’s identity?
