The Mystery of the Charity of Joan of Arc
The Mystery of the Charity of Joan of
The Mystery of the Charity of Joan of Arc, first published in English in 1950, is an amalgamation of a poem and a play, taking as its central theme the awakening of Joan of Arc’s vocation. The text develops from dialogues between the young Jeanne d’Arc and the simple Hauviette and the saintly Madame Gervaise. To create the text’s unique cadence and character, Péguy fashions elevated soliloquies on the mystery of God’s love for humanity and intersperses among them sober meditations on sin, suffering, and redemption.In the words of translator Julian Green, “Péguy shared with Dante the peculiar gift of clothing the metaphysical with humanity. He had an eye for the invisible which only the most mystical among primitives have had before him, because he was himself a great primitive.” Prophetic and penetrating, Péguy’s The Mystery of the Charity of Joan of Arc endures as a literary testament to the reality—and realization—of God’s call to the human heart.

Beyond the Myth: The Story of Joan of Arc
Beyond the Myth: The Story of Joan of
The king was going mad . . . So begins Polly Schoyer Brooks's account of one of history's most compelling stories and one of the world's most popular heroines-Joan of Arc. Brooks tells us of a fifteenth-century France ravaged by war, plague, and religious conflict; of a king who suffered fits of madness and his weak son who made a disappointing successor; and of a peasant girl from the countryside who accomplished what appeared to be miracles by rallying the dispirited French nation with her desire to see the rightful king rule. Little more than a year after her astounding triumphs-uniting the nation and securing the throne for Charles VII with her victory over the English at Orlean-nineteen-year-old Joan was imprisoned on charges of witchcraft and sorcery, tried for heresy, and burned at the stake. Polly Schoyer Brooks's detailed narrative unveils the spirited young woman who became a patron saint and continues to inspire courage and faith.

Joan of Arc
Very few people know that Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens) wrote a major work on Joan of Arc. Still fewer know that he considered it not only his most important but also his best work. He spent twelve years in research and many months in France doing archival work and then made several attempts until he felt he finally had the story he wanted to tell. He reached his conclusion about Joan's unique place in history only after studying in detail accounts written by both sides, the French and the English. Because of Mark Twain's antipathy to institutional religion, one might expect an anti-Catholic bias toward Joan or at least toward the bishops and theologians who condemned her. Instead one finds a remarkably accurate biography of the life and mission of Joan of Arc told by one of this country's greatest storytellers. The very fact that Mark Twain wrote this book and wrote it the way he did is a powerful testimony to the attractive power of the Catholic Church's saints. This is a book that really will inform and inspire.

Joan of Arc
One of the most artful narratives ever written concerning the life of The Maid. Hilaire Belloc wrote with a familiarity only possessed by those with an intimate knowledge of the facts. A Catholic, of both French and English descent, Belloc clearly had an emotional affinity for this episode in the long struggle between the two nations.

Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc (Dover Thrift Editions)
Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc (Dover Thrift
Regarded by many as the most luminous example of Mark Twain's work, this fictional biography of Joan of Arc was purportedly written by Joan's page and secretary — Sieur Louis de Conté. (Twain's alter ego even shared the author's same initials — S. L. C.) Told from the viewpoint of this lifelong friend, the historical novel is a panorama of stirring scenes and marvel of pageantry — from Joan's early childhood in Domremy and her touching story of the voices, to the fight for Orleans, the taking of Tourelles and Jargeau, and the splendid march to Rheims.But above all, the work is an amazing record that disclosed Twain's unrestrained admiration of the French heroine's nobility of character. Throughout his life, she remained his favorite historical figure — "the most innocent, the most lovely, the most adorable child the ages have produced."Completed when the author was nearly sixty, the book reveals a splendidly expressive side of Twain, who wrote, "I like the Joan of Arc best of all my books; & it is the best; I know it perfectly well. And besides, it furnished me seven times the pleasure afforded me by any of the others: 12 years of preparation & 2 years of writing. The others needed no preparation, & got none."Matchless in its workmanship, this lesser work will charm — ...
