And Mrs. Long opened that closet, but there were no lions or witches to frighten me. This is the finest example of an implied detail, since the opening of the closet and nothing coming out of it constitute the basis of the scariness. Without this detail, I would not have been frightened.
Joan was blessed with exceptional mental and physical courage, as well as a strong common sense, and she exhibited many of the characteristics associated with the female visionaries who were prominent during her time. She had a deep faith in God's justice, and she believed that she was performing an important service by encouraging other people to follow his path. Her spirit was such that she could not bear dishonor or shame, and so when she was captured by the English and held prisoner for nearly three years, she refused their offer to release her in exchange for money because she knew this would mean giving up her beliefs.
She was also loyal to those who had trusted her. When her father died, she did not hesitate for a moment before swearing allegiance to his younger brother, Robert Curson. And after Robert was killed while fighting against the English at the battle of Sauchieburn, she again took up arms to defend the memory of her murdered lord.
Finally, she was generous to a fault. Not only did she risk her life every day by going into battle, but also later on, when she was working as a nurse in a hospital, she gave away all her possessions and traveled around Europe looking for patients who needed her help.
These are just some of the things you can learn about Joan of Arc from this passage.
