I absolutely love Jean Anouilh's "The Lark." I ordered this copy so I could compare Lillian Hellman's translation with that of Christopher Fry, which I was able to download as a PDF from the internet. I read the Hellman version many years ago and found the translation fairly poor. After comparing the two, I definitely prefer Fry's translation. (But, frankly, I have been working on a translation myself, and I think mine will be the best when it is finished.) Still, I have no problem with the quality of the book itself -- excellent condition, binding is good, etc.

Joan of Arc has inspired many people though the ages, through her own inspiration by angel voices that she, a young country girl, was capable of great achievements, commanding her to lead the disheartened Army of France to victory over the invading and much superior forces of England. Because of her independent religious zeal, however, and despite having successfully carried out her mission, she was brought before the Holy Inquisition, found guilty of heresy, and burned at the stake in front of Rheims Cathedral. This play captures the intense drama of the powerful aura of that short but powerful life. The shock waves of that episode in history has captured the imagination of many writers, historians, clerics, lawyers, and most of all people from meager beginnings who pursue their dreams. I saw the Broadway production of this play, the Lillian Hellman adaptation, at the Longacre Theater, in 1955. I was en route to a military assignment and took the opportunity of one night in New York to see and hear this play and its stellar cast of great actors and voices: Julie Harris as Joan, Christopher Plummer as Warwick, Joseph Wiseman as The Inquisitor, and Boris Karloff as Cauchon. I bought the hard copy of this play, which had just been published by Random House as a tribute to this production, with photographs of the cast from the Tudor staged production, and was able to have it autographed members of the cast. I have replayed that evening over in my mind ever since. The aura of those great performances of brilliant words describing a miraculous person, has stayed in my mind. Time Magazine critics were so impressed with it, they featured a special cover portrait of Julie Harris as Joan. But the reader should not stop there, but pursue the inspired works of George Bernard Shaw's brilliant "St.Read more ›

50 years ago I acted the role of Charles the Dauphin in this play during my senior year as a student in the University of New Mexico in
Albuquerque at the Old Rodey Theatre, so purchasing a copy to re-read is an exercise in nostalgia.
