About this title

Synopsis:

Nathalie Quintane circumvents the biographical to explore this well-known story from inside Joan's experience.

In this retelling of Joan of Arc’s trials and tribulations, Nathalie Quintane scuffs up the surface of language to get at paradoxes and nuances that reveal the two parts of Joan’s life: warrior on the surface and austere virgin underneath. Quintane works this into a metaphor for contemporary feminist self-performance that subverts dominant narratives, limiting the image of woman as pawn to power.

Jeannette
Joan
I am the saint on the air
Catherine’s voice in your ear
Others will speak through you
Joan, you are exceptional,
but you must fight to stay modest.
When men follow you
never forget to tell them of the Catholic faith
your knees will guide horses
Catherine creates Joan Darc
you cannot last here

Nathalie Quintane was born in Paris in 1964 and is the author of nineteen books of poetry and lyrical prose. Formally, she writes within a lineage of metapoetic writers, such as Isadore Ducasse and Francis Ponge. Quintane is considered one of the major experimental poets of her generation.

Cynthia Hogue (co-translator) has published thirteen books, most recently Revenance. With Sylvain Gallais, Hogue co-translated Fortino Sámano (The overflowing of the poem), by Virginie Lalucq and philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy, which won the Harold Morton Landon Translation Award. She directs the MFA program in English at Arizona State University.

Sylvain Gallais (co-translator) is a French economist whose most recent works are France Encounters Globalization, and an essay entitled Preserving Biodiversity in the European Union.” He is Professor of French at Arizona State University.
