    In the brief life of Joan of Arc several of the essential mythopoeic characteristics that throughout history have defined the charismatic leader and saint are powerfully condensed. In this study, Marina Warner first analyses the symbolism of the Maid in her own time, then examines her rich afterlife in literature, politics, and on the stage and screen. The book was first published in 1981, and has been reissued with a substantial new introduction by the author.
