Act 1, Scenes iv-viii

The battle between Joan's forces and Talbot's troops is described in stage directions. While much of Talbot's troops' defeat takes place offstage, the fight between Joan and Talbot remains onstage. The actions of hundreds of men and horses, thus, receive mention but not physical manifestation; the audience, like the reader, must imagine them.

After Joan wins Orléans, Charles's nobles seem hesitant to celebrate her efforts and hint that they should honor all the warriors. But Charles attributes the victory to her alone. He declares her to be France's newest saint--thus exhibiting a positive attitude indeed toward this woman warrior.
