LIT/A/2: SAINT JOAN By Benard Shaw
Saint Joan chronicles the life, death, and legacy of Joan of Arc. George Bernard Shaw published the play in 1924, and won the Nobel Prize for literature the following year. You'd think the guy would be happy right? The Nobel is pretty much one of the most respected awards on Earth. Shaw didn't see it that way. He wrote to one of his friends, "The Nobel was a hideous calamity for me. It was really almost as bad as my 70th birthday" (source).
