Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Joan of Arc, the 15th-century "Maid of Orleans" who led French forces in defense of Charles, the Dauphin, and was burned at the stake as a witch by the English authorities, has for many years been a popular figure, written about approvingly by the likes of George Bernard Shaw and Mark Twain. Trask, an independent scholar, gives us Joan in her own words, culled from the trial reports and from eyewitnesses. There are not many words, admittedly, but they are Joan's own and are thus a window into her spirit. The starkness of the words is offset by a 19th-century afterword by Sir Richard Creasy, who provides the context. Readers seeking a more complete account would do well to read Twain's Joan of Arc, recently republished by Ignatius Press. Recommended for academic and larger public libraries.Augustine J. Curley, Newark Abbey, N.J.

    This book makes you feel you know her better.

    Willard Trask has done a wonderful job in putting Joan of Arc¿s words in this book. He tells the place and date when her words were spoken. It is a great companion to ¿Joan of Arc, Her Story,¿ by Regine Pernoud and Marie-Veronique Clin. When reading Joan¿s words you feel her holiness coming through. The assertiveness in her words, whether to those who examined her at Poitiers, by the king, or her judges at her trial brings out the strength and leadership qualities she possesses. The impatience and frustration she shows with her generals and king shows her humanness that we can relate to in our own life and struggles. Joan of Arc¿s words made me feel I know her much better than just relying on what others say about her.

    Perfect for Fun and for Research

    I found this book on bn.com when I was looking for possible sources for a research paper. Thinking it would help (which it did) I bought it. But I found that this book is also a superb fun read. Seeing how it's edited down to just Jehanne's words, you don't get flooded with info. This is great if you already know her tale. It allows you to focus on Jehanne's inspiration and is truly the only version of her side of the story. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to read on Jehanne d'Arc...for fun or for research.

    Brings Jehanne to life

    How many times have you heard everyone eles' version of Jehanne d'Arc? Well, not in this book. It tells what Jehanne actually said. Just facts, that's it. I recommend it greatly to everyone.
