: This volume contains Bernard Shawâs 1924 play, "Saint Joan". It is a âchronicle playâ in six scenes, and an epilogue that revolves around Joan of Arc. It elucidates her immense personality, problems, and potential. As well as the play itself, Shaw also furnishes a number of chapters on Joan of Arc that offer interesting insights into her life and character. This interesting and thought-provoking play will appeal to fans and collectors of Shawâs seminal work, and would make for a great addition to any collection. The chapters of this book include: âJoan the Original and Presumptuousâ, âJoan and Socratesâ, âContrast with Napoleonâ, âWas Joan Innocent or Guiltyâ, âJoanâs Good Looksâ, âJoanâs Social Positionâ, âJoanâs Voices and Visionsâ, âThe Evolutionary Appetiteâ, etcetera. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.
