Saint Joan - A Chronicle Play in Six Scenes and an Epilogue

Author(s): George Bernard Shaw

Drama

Hailed by T. S. Eliot as "a dramatic delight," George Bernard Shaw's only tragedy traces the historical path of the peasant girl who led French troops to victory over the English in the Hundred Years' War. Unlike previous interpretations, this martyred heroine is not a witch, saint, or madwoman but a pre-feminist icon, possessed of innate intelligence and leadership qualities that challenge the authority of church and state. Includes Shaw's lengthy Preface.
