Description: Joan of Arc has a unique role in the Western imagination -- she is one of the few true female heroes. 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.

Warner sets out to decode the rare and powerful vision of the female that Joan embodies. Drawing on a vast array of sources -- from the court transcripts of Joan's trial in 1431 to the Hollywood archives of today -- she explores what Joan has meant both to her contemporaries and to succeeding generations. Warner places Joan in the context of the mythology of the female hero and takes note of her historical antecedents, both pagan and Christian, and the role she has played up to the present as the embodiment of an ideal, whether as Amazon, saint, child of nature, or personification of virtue.
