Published in 1896 by Harper Brothers following serialisation in Harpers Magazine, Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc was Twain's ninth novel and the one he considered his best work. Although the... More > Joan story is essentially true, this account by Twain is fictionalised, with the author – who kept his identity hidden for the serialisation – claiming that it had been 'freely translated' from an original manuscript by one Jean Francois Alden.

More > peasant girl born in eastern France who claimed divine guidance, she led the French army to several important victories during the Hundred Years' War, which paved the way for the coronation of Charles VII. She was captured by the Burgundians, transferred to the English in exchange for money, put on trial by the pro-English Bishop of Beauvais for charges of "insubordination and heterodoxy," and burned at the stake as a heretic when she was 19 years old.
