A work that Mark Twain himself considered his last finished and most important novel, "The Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc", is a departure from Twain's usual comic and satirical spirit. "Joan" is a work of serious historical reflection that suggests that the English deliberately rigged the trial of Joan of Arc to convict her of witchcraft and heresy, a view that recent scholarship seems to support.
