JOAN OF ARC was perhaps the most wonderful person who ever lived in the world. The story of her life is so strange that we could scarcely believe it to be true, if all that happened to her had not been told by people in a court of law, and written down by her deadly enemies, while she was still alive. She was burned to death when she was only nineteen: she was not seventeen when she first led the armies of France to victory, and delivered her country from the English.
Joan was the daughter of a poor man, in a little country village. She had never learned to read, or write, or mount a horse. Yet she was so wise that many learned men could not puzzle her by questions: she was one of the best riders in France; one of the most skilled in aiming cannons, and so great a general that she defeated the English again and again, and her army was never beaten till her King deserted her. She was so brave that severe wounds could not stop her from leading on her soldiers, and so tender-hearted that she would comfort the wounded English on the field of battle, and protect them from cruelty. She was so good that her enemies could not find one true story to tell against her in the least thing; and she was so modest that in the height of her glory she was wishing to be at home in her father's cottage, sewing or spinning beside her mother.

    (Selkirk 1844 - Banchory 1912) scrittore scozzese. Autore di notevoli lavori nel campo del mito, del folclore e della fiabistica, è noto anche per i suoi studi su Omero. La sua traduzione in prosa dell’Odissea (1879) e dell’Iliade (1883) è ancora diffusa nel mondo anglosassone. Raccolse un prezioso e celebre repertorio di fiabe nei dodici volumi che vanno dal Libro azzurro delle fate (The blue fairy book, 1889) al Libro lilla delle fate (The lilac fairy book, 1910). Scrisse egli stesso alcune fiabe come Il principe Prigio (Prince Prigio, 1889) e Il principe Riccardo di Pantuflia (Prince Ricardo of Pantouflia, 1893), tra le migliori dell’epoca vittoriana. Delle altre opere di L. si ricordano: Mito, rito e religione (Myth, ritual and religion, 1887), la Storia della Scozia (History of Scotland,... Approfondisci
