Voices: The Final Hours of Joan of Arc

by David Elliott

First Release:

June 2019

ISBN: 9781328987594

Told through medieval poetic forms and in the voices of the people and objects in Joan of Arc 's life, (including her family and even the trees, clothes, cows, and candles of her childhood), Voices offers an unforgettable perspective on an extraordinary young woman. Along the way it explores timely issues such as gender, misogyny, and the peril of speaking truth to power. Before Joan of Arc became a saint, she was a girl inspired. It is that girl we come to know in Voices.

Author 's note, with breakdown of poetic forms used in the book.
