Item Description...
Compiled and translated by Willard Trask, with an historical afterword by Sir Edward Creasy. "The details of the life of Joan of Arc forma biography which is unique among the world's biographies in one respect, " wrote Mark Twain: "it is the only story of a human life which comes to us under oath, the only one which comes to us from the witness stand." Using only material compiled from the transcripts and testimonies of St. Joan's condemnation trials, Willard Trask has arranged her words into a unique autobiography. Trask was Ford Madox Ford's personal secretary, and later a National Book Award winner and a recipient of Bollingen Foundation grants for his work in medieval and primitive poetry.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent & Inspiring  Mar 8, 2008
I've begun reading this, along with 3 other books I purchased. It is not a narrative read, and more along the lines of a journal or notes, but it is excellent, and breathes new light into Joan of Arc as a woman beside & within her every belief.
The Maid speaks....  Oct 23, 2006
I bought this book several years ago and it is one purchase that I do not regret. Wonderful for grabbing a thought, it often ends up in the pile of my inspirational books. There is nothing like a word from Joan before facing the day. As history, it is an excellent tool from which to derive direct quotations from one of the greatest enigmas of all time. JOAN OF ARC: IN HER OWN WORDS puts the reader in contact with the mind of the saint and the events which she faced so courageously. Her boldness, her femininity, her adandonment and her triumph are all there.
Great read  Mar 13, 2006
This was a good book. It enlightened me to many things I didn't no about Joan of Arc. Like her childhood which it covered very well and even mentioned her dreams of becoming a solider and father's nightmares and even her favorite spot to play.
It covered her military conquest in great detail and made it interesting in a way I have not before on her. But I have to question the parts that reveal personal information on Joan's dreams. She was illiterate her entire life, right? So how did the author get the documents to prove this.

The trail sequence was also very well done. The questions and answers, even though very redundant, were both enlightening and showed Joan's personality extremely well. The references to the saints were like said in the notes slightly changed to make it make more sense.

All in All, good book but contradicts itself in some parts. Probably when the author was changing the letters to first person instead of third, but that is mention in the notes. There are also some randomly blank pages in the notes leaving parts out. The book is very accurate and is a good read for people who wish to learn more about the heroine.
Defective copy  Sep 20, 2005
I read this right after buying it, but it was published in 1996 and the publisher apparently went out of business in 1997. I would like to know whether it is my copy or the entire edition that is defective - the Notes end in mid-word ("Excluded with then are passages merely rou-") on p.147! Then p.148 is blank, and there is no p.149/150, after which the pagination resumes with p.151.
Compelling  Jun 27, 2004
Reading Jehanne's own words is simply an amazing experience. The way the book is written, you can almost hear her speaking with all the passion & fervor she posessed. Reading this book is like being there, back in time, actually watching & hearing all as it happens.
