9780099884200: Joan of Arc: The Image of Female Heroism

Set against the time in which she lived and against the successive historical and cultural climates that have used her image for their own ends, Joan of Arc is depicted here as a "heroine for all seasons". The author's other books include "Alone of All Her Sex" and "Monuments and Maidens".

"Elegantly written, thoughtful (as one would expect from the author of "Alone of All Her Sex), imaginative, sensitive. Warner ranges through iconographic, allegorical, literary, dramatic, operatic, cinematographic, linguistic, historical, biographical, and political evidence to present a history of Joan and of her subsequent representations."--"Choice
