Versions of Reality Quotes Page 3

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #7

JOAN: "But what voices do you need to tell you what the blacksmith can tell you: that you must strike while the iron is hot?" (5.68)

Here again we see that Joan's voices are backed up by her own common sense.

Quote #8

JOAN: "Oh, it is true: it is true: my voices have deceived me. I have been mocked by devils: my faith is broken." (6.196)

This is the only time in the play that we see Joan doubt her version of reality.

Quote #9

JOAN: "I know that your counsel is of the devil, and that mine is of God." (6.233)

This is the ultimate blasphemy that condemns her to death.
