One of the greatest dramatists of the 20th century, George Bernard Shaw was an Irish writer and political activist who won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1925.
The play, Saint Joan, depicts the true picture of the Maid of Orleans who refuses to dress like a woman and rebels against the conventions of the orthodox society. She is portrayed as a courageous woman who bravely faces the world that was still not ready to accept her and pays a terrible price for her boldness.
Shaw expressed his controversial ideas through the medium of his plays. Saint Joan deals with the life, death and canonization of the historical Joan of Arc and was written in 1923. The greatest warrior saint of the 15th century, Joan of Arc had dedicated her life to free France from the clutches of the English army.
