Quotable Quotes 31 Dec. 1999
By Katrina King - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was a very excellent book! It is about Joan of Arc, told in dialogue as a character reenactment. The book is filled with passages of great insight spouted by this young girl while she is on trial for heresy. She says much concerning religion and God and also of fear and loyalty. There is some humor as well. The end, although not completely historically accurate, is made so on purpose, demonstrating the author's existentialist beliefs. He believes it is better to die for one's cause than live without a cause.

C'est MAGNIFIQUE! 30 Jun. 2000
By Stephanie Longo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I had to read this book for French class and found it to be the best French book I'd ever read. The play is wonderful with its use of flashbacks and the ending is just wonderful even though its not how it was in history. It makes the whole story seem hopeful, as it should be and not sad, which is how most people perceive the story of Jeanne d'Arc. I highly recommend this book!
A Great Play 2 Feb. 2011
By Linda Wyeth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
L'Alouette, a play written by French playwright Jean Anouilh in the 1950s, tells the story of Jeanne d'Arc (Joan of Arc) as a play-within-a-play. During her trial for heresy, there are flashbacks in which Jeanne replays key scenes of her life and mission to save France from the "godons" (goddamned English) during the Hundred Years War. One of the keys to the authenticity of Anouilh's voice is that he used the original transcripts of her trial in the 1400s to get it right. Many years ago when studying the play in high school, I heard that in the course of writing the play, Anouilh fell in love with the character of Jeanne and was unable to bring himself to kill her in the end. So, the ending is both a surprise and a tale of the indomitability of Jeanne' faith. The only thing missing from this version of the play is Anouilh's introduction to his master work.
