Marina Warner uses her superb historical and literary skills to move beyond conventional biography and to capture the essence of Joan of Arc, both as she lived in her own time and as she has "grown" in the human imagination over the five centuries since her death.

Here is one of our richest sources for the life of a medieval woman. Obscured by the passing of centuries and distorted by the lens of modern cinema, the story of the historical Joan of Arc comes vividly to life once again. By combining the roles of visionary and of military leader, Joan astonished contemporaries and still fascinates us today.
