Little Jehanne Darc, peasant maid from the village of Domremy, France, was born into an era of constant internal conflict and war with the English. At the age of 13 she was visited by visions from God which directed her to lead an army in defense of her beloved country. For this, she ultimately suffered a fiery death and a position as the most revered martyr in history.
This is the story of Saint Joan, told in a unique format, by one of her greatest admirers, John Martin Atkins. A 48 year old scholar from southern Indiana, John was too old to carry a gun but too patriotic to sit at home and read about the Great War in As he sought a way to do his part, he discovered that the YMCA was launching a pioneer program to provide lectures for the Doughboys. John leapt at the opportunity and was soon in France. Joan of Arc was his favorite subject; a most appropriate selection, here in the country of her birth, her triumphs and the ultimate tragedy. Not only did he thrill the troops with his vivid and passionate tale of her life, he simultaneously studied at the very places of her exploits to keep his lectures fresh and exciting.
Domremy, Tours, Orleans, Rheims and Rouen was the hallowed ground for his research and inspiration between lectures.
The war ended but he remained in France to study her life and set foot on every foot of ground that she trod. After much soul searching he determined that the form of his essay should be that of Epic Poetry. And thus began a 35 year labor of love. When questioned regarding his motive for writing this historically factual Epic Poem, he replied: "I sought to pluck so precious a literary jewel from the dusty pages of history and place it, if I could, into the fine art of poetry.
He then asked his grandson, Richard for help. A promise was made and after another long period, a team of first cousins finally brought this beautiful work to light. Joan of Arc and the Hundred Years' War. This war had started 75 years before Joan's birth, and it ended 22 years after Joan's death.
If you know about Joan of Arc, you already know quite a bit about the Hundred Years' War because Joan was soldier of the month in this war, several months in a row, thanks to her performance at the Siege of Orleans , which ended in May Joan's Background and Early Life. Joan was born in Domremy as well. Here is Domremy on a map.
Joan Arc Epic Poem
The Duchy of Bar became part of Lorraine in By then, of course, Joan was long gone. You are welcome to visit Joan of Arc's birthplace at Domremy, which is now a humble little museum. Today, the tiny village of Domremy is home to about residents. Thus, Joan developed a strong patriotic sense.
Check the map above to see how France was sandwiched by the English on the mainland and Burgundy. And here is more on the Burgundians. This painting shows Joan in her early days. We see her standing in the garden of her parents at that exact moment when The Voices made contact. Oil on canvas. Metropolitan Museum of Art Painter Jules Bastien-Lepage, himself hailing from Damvillers, Lorraine, received some harsh comments from the critics, who could not appreciate his mixture of naturalism and mysticism. Back to Joan.
Joan of Arc's Impossible Mission According to herself, and well ahead of her age group, Joan started hearing voices when she was only thirteen years old. Who were these voices, and what did they want?
