Joan of Arc

Joan of Arc - Mark Twain First book I ever read that was written by Mark Twain. It is really hard to believe that Joan of Arc was a once a real-living human being. The more I read the book, the more I believed that she was a myth, a kind of person equal to that of Achilles or Odysseus.

Well, putting aside the question whether Joan was real or not, this book is quite entertaining. I liked the additions that were put by the author, like the poem L'ARBRE FÉE DE BOURLEMONT, the fairy trees, and of Catherine Boucher's ghost story.

Joan of Arc was a personal interest to Twain, and it was said that this book was the one he liked the most, despite his contemporaries thought otherwise.
