Read full description of the books:
Really brilliant lesbian feminist mythmaking. Good stuff. "The Second Coming of Joan of Arc" and "Artemisia and Hildegard" were probably my favourites, but at least half of them made me cry all over my book like a wiener. Not that they took themselves too seriously, some were quite witty and fun, but Gage sure knows how to pack an emotional punch. And she sure has captured what it's like to be a dyke in communities where that's not an acceptable option. My main takeaway is that Rich was right when she said that a central fact of woman's history is that we have always resisted male tyranny. We've done it in a lot of different ways, but we're born to survive.
I wish some of the plays were longer but I suppose that's not the point. And if my biggest complaint is that I wanted more I suppose that's a good sign.
And as a Joan of Arc nerd, this is one of my favourite depictions of the kid.
