Joan of Arc: A Life Transfigured

Posted by



This story of the peasant girl whose voices moved her to rally the French and their reluctant king against the English invaders in 1428 has fascinated writers from Shakespeare to Shaw. Was she a saint, a schizophrenic or, as her captors tried to prove, a demonically possessed heretic? Novelist and biographer Kathryn Harrison weaves together fact, folklore, artistic representations and centuries of scholarly interpretation to give us a heroine for our times.
