Book: Shaw B. «Saint Joan»

Saint Joan

Серия: "Penguin Classics"

With Saint Joan, Shaw reached the height of his fame as a dramatist. Fascinated by the story of Joan of Arc (canonized in 1920), but unhappy with "the whitewash which disfigures her beyond recognition," he presents a realistic Joan: proud, intolerant, na&# 239;ve, foolhardy, always brave-a rebel who challenged the conventions and values of her day.
