This is my page/personal table of contents. I'm using the Dewey Decimal Classifiaction because that's what I'm most familiar with.

Current Rant[edit | edit source]

I am interested in (biographically speaking) people like Joan of Arc and Elizabeth I of England. I have yet to find a biography on either. Both have been the subject of a good deal of ink; each, for her own reasons, could reasonably (in my opinion) justify having a textbook devoted to them — even if said textbook isn't the obese paper freeweights one has to read in your average 100-level college course.

I have found a little — a scant few paragraphs — on Tudor England at [[1]]. This for an era populated by any number of residents who have inspired a great many books. On its own merit, the period has fair number of non-biographical works devoted to it: a noteworthy one is John Guy's Tudor England (ISBN 0192852132, Dewey Decimal # 942.05 G).

I have yet to do a thurough search on information pertaining to Joan of Arc, but I would be very surprised if she wasn't mentioned somewhere. She provided an inspiration for the French army (and people) at a critical point of the Hundred Year's War.
