Joan of Arc: In Her Own Words

Joan of Arc: In Her Own Words Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cultural Studies. Translation. Using only material compiled from the transcripts and testimonies of Joan of Arc's condemnation trials, translator William Trask has arranged her exact words into a unique autobiography called JOAN OF ARC: IN HER OWN WORDS. Stripped of the usual interpretive gloss, Joan's words resonate with a glow which has made her an enduring political, military and spiritual heroine. "She has inspired artists from Mark Twain to Martha Graham, from George Bernard Shaw to Verdi, From Schiller to Cecil B. DeMille, but the stark, historical facts of her life are more remarkable than any fiction" -Donna Tartt.

Synopsis:

"A strange, welcome surprise which reads like Beckett or modernist play."...Stacey D'Erasmo

Synopsis:

The story of a young French peasant girl who led an army to help crown a king and was burned at the stake for her efforts has never lost its power to move us. Yet neither movies nor books about Joan of Arc have anything like the impact of her own words--as written here, by turns simple, poetic, inspiring, political, wise, and passionate.

Synopsis:

The only available source for the exact words of Joan of Arc, compiled from the transcript of her trials and rearranged as an autobiography by Willard Trask.
