Andreacute; Gide's lifelong fascination with the conventions of society led naturally to a strong interest in France's judicial system.Judge Notdetails his experiences with the law as well as his thoughts on truth, justice, and judgment. Gide writes about his experience as a juror in several trials, including that of an arsonist, and he analyzes two famous crimes of his day: Marcel Redureau, a docile fifteen-year old vineyard labourer who violently murdered his employer's family, and the respected Monnier family's confinement of their daughter, Blanche.
