Books Info:

The Devil in the Flesh free pdf Raymond Radiguet wrote "The Devil in the Flesh" between the ages of sixteen and eighteen, following his own love affair with a married woman. Francois, the adolescent narrator, meets Marthe in Paris at the start of the First World War when her husband is away at the Front. They fall in love with each other. Their passion leads to a tragic climax four years later when Marthe passes off their love child as her husband's legitimate child even though everyone knows the truth. The themes of freedom, family and passion against a background of war and honour in "The Devil in the Flesh" created a scandal at the time of publication (the year of the author's death).
