Because this novel is not drawn from Twain's real life, and because it is his only work to focus on a female, "Joan of Arc" is atypical within the Twain oeuvre, yet contains seminal ideas - sympathy for the oppressed, rebellion against tyranny, scorn for the divine right, and belief in the common person - central to Twain's fiction. This re-examination of the work also argues that he used it as an opportunity to espouse his unconventional ideas regarding women, which were evolving in the direction of what we would today call reform-minded feminism. In it he confronts another significant issue - how historical events may be at odds with how they are recorded.
