Publishers Statement: “Using only material compiled from the transcripts and testimonies of Joan of Arc’s condemnation trials, translator Willard Trask has arranged her exact words into a unique autobiography called JOAN OF ARC: IN HER OWN WORDS. Stripped of the usual interpretive gloss, Joan’s words resonate with a glow which has made her an enduring political, military and spiritual heroine”.
From Library Journal: “…Trask, an independent scholar, gives us Joan in her own words, culled from the trial reports and from eyewitnesses. There are not many words, admittedly, but they are Joan’s own and are thus a window into her spirit.”
One thought on “Joan of Arc: In Her Own Words, translated and compiled by Willard Trask (1996)”
One of my favorite Joan books. Reading her words without the usual interpretation and context makes her feel so immediate and human. It gave me chills.
