Average Rating: 5 stars out of 5.
Saint Joan
Print
Baker & Taylor
Dramatizes the trial, career, and execution of Joan of Arc

Blackwell North Amer
With Saint Joan, Shaw reached the height of his fame as a dramatist. In this play he distilled many of the ideas he had been trying to express in earlier works on the sublects of politics, religion and creative evolution. Fascinated by the story of Joan of Arc, but unhappy with the way she had traditionally been depicted, Shaw wanted to remove 'the whitewash which disfigures her beyond recognition'. He presents a realistic Joan: proud, intolerant, naive, foolhardy, always brave - a rebel who challenged the conventions and values of her day.

This is a classic so there's really no point in me telling you whether I liked it or not. It's a play, so it should only take you an hour or two to read anyway.

Here's a list of the page numbers of all the good female monologues I found, though there might be more that I haven't found. There are only two female roles, only one of which has more than a couple lines. There are good male monologues and good scenes as well, I just haven't bothered to find them.

Joan: "ablebodied country girl of 17 or 18"
102-103, 108, 112, 137-138
