Paris in the Twentieth Century: Jules Verne, The Lost Novel

Paris in the Twentieth Century: Jules Verne, The Lost Novel

THE LITERARY DISCOVERY OF THE CENTURY In 1863 Jules Verne, famed author of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Around the World in Eighty Days, wrote a novel that his literary agent deemed too farfetched to be published. More than one hundred years later, his great-grandson found the handwritten, never-before published manuscript in a safe. That manuscript was Paris in the Twentieth Century, an astonishingly prophetic view into the future by one of the most renowned science fiction writers of our time.

Jules Verne Rediscovered: Didacticism and the Scientific Novel (Contributions to the Study of World Literature)

Jules Verne Rediscovered: Didacticism and the Scientific Novel (Contributions to the Study of World Literature)

This brilliant study of Verne's three cycles (1850-62, 1862-86, 1886-1916) analyzes the works from a biographical, sociohistorical, ideological, and narratological point of view. With a deep focus on Verne's pedagogical slant, Evans demonstrates convincingly the parallels between the French author's aim to `de-alienate' science and his aim to valorize learning, knowledge, and reading (his heroes conquer more knowledge for themselves and for the world). Choice This first modern American study of Jules Verne offers a wide-ranging reappraisal of a very familiar but often misunderstood author and his works. In spite of his status as one of the most translated novelists of all time, Verne and his Voyages ExtraordinaireS have long been neglected in American literary scholarship. This book seeks to reaffirm Verne's significant contribution to the development of early science fiction through a detailed investigation of his romans scientifiques. Evans has focused his study on the didactic dimension of Verne's narratives, which were originally intended to teach the rudements of science and morality to French youth through the medium of popular fiction.

The Mysterious Island: Jules Verne's Sequel to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (Timeless Classic Books)

The Mysterious Island: Jules Verne's Sequel to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (Timeless Classic Books)

The Mysterious Island by Jules Verne tells the adventures of five American prisoners of war on an uncharted island in the South Pacific. Beginning in the American Civil War, as famine and death ravage the city of Richmond, Virginia, five northern POWs decide to escape in a rather unusual way - by hijacking a balloon! Thus begins a book filled with adventures, twists and turns. The novel is a sequel to Verne's famous Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and In Search of the Castaways, though thematically it is vastly different from those books. The first British edition of Mysterious Island consisted of three volumes entitled Dropped from the Clouds, The Abandoned, and The Secret of the Island.

The Field of Ice (Jules Verne Classics)

The Field of Ice (Jules Verne Classics)

The Field of Ice By Jules Verne It was a bold project of Hatteras to push his way to the North Pole, and gain for his country the honour and glory of its discovery. But he had done all that lay in human power now, and, after having struggled for nine months against currents and tempests, shattering icebergs and breaking through almost insurmountable barriers, amid the cold of an unprecedented winter, after having outdistanced all his predecessors and accomplished half his task, he suddenly saw all his hopes blasted. The treachery, or rather the despondency, of his worn-out crew, and the criminal folly of one or two leading spirits among them had left him and his little band of men in a terrible situation?helpless in an icy desert, two thousand five hundred miles away from their native land, and without even a ship to shelter them. However, the courage of Hatteras was still undaunted. The three men which were left him were the best on board his brig, and while they remained he might venture to hope. After the cheerful, manly words of the captain, the Doctor felt the best thing to be done was to look their prospects fairly in the face, and know the exact state of things. Accordingly, leaving his companions, he stole away alone down to the scene of the explosion. Of the Forward, the brig that had been so carefully built and had become so dear, not a vestige remained. Shapeless blackened fragments, twisted bars of iron,

An Antarctic Mystery: A Jules Verne Adventure Classic (Timeless Classic Books)

An Antarctic Mystery: A Jules Verne Adventure Classic (Timeless Classic Books)

An Antarctic Mystery, also known also as The Sphinx of the Ice Fields, is an 1897, novel by Jules Verne and is a sequel to Edgar Allan Poe's The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket which was published in 1838. It follows the adventures of the narrator and his journey from the Kerguelen Islands onboard the Halbrane. The story is set in 1839. The narrator is a wealthy American Jeorling, who has entertained himself with private studies of the wildlife on the Kerguelen islands and is now looking for a passage back to the USA. The Halbrane is one of the first ships to arrive at Kerguelen, and its captain Len Guy somewhat reluctantly agrees to have Jeorling as a passenger as far as Tristan d'Acunha. Underway they meet a stray iceberg with a dead body on it, which turns out to be a sailor from the Jane. A note found with him indicates that he and several others including the Jane's captain William Guy had survived the assassination attempt at Tsalal and are still alive. Guy decides to try to come to the rescue of the Jane's crew. After taking on provisions on Tristan d'Acunha and the Falklands, they head South with Jeorling still on board. They also take aboard another mysterious sailor by the name of Hunt who is eager to join the search for undisclosed reasons. Extraordinarily mild weather allows the Halbrane to make good progress, and they break the pack ice barrier, which surrounds an ice-free Antarctic ocean, early in summer. They find first Bennet's islet, where the Jane had made a stop, and finally Tsalal. But the island is completely devastated, apparently by a recent massive earthquake, and deserted. They find lots of remains of Tsalal's natives, who apparently died long before the earthquake, and the collar of Pym's dog Tiger, but no trace of the Jane.

The Secret Message of Jules Verne: Decoding His Masonic, Rosicrucian, and Occult Writings

The Secret Message of Jules Verne: Decoding His Masonic, Rosicrucian, and Occult Writings

An exploration of how Jules Verne used his writings to encrypt important Masonic and Rosicrucian secrets and sacred symbolism? Investigates Verne?s connections to the prominent secret societies of his time: Freemasons, Golden Dawn, Angelic Society, and Rosicrucians? Reveals how certain of Verne?s works hold the key to deciphering the Rennes-le-Ch teau mystery? Explores Verne?s relations with other authors whose works reveal similar esoteric influence: George Sand, Gaston Leroux, Bram Stoker, and Maurice Leblanc Prolific author and pioneer of the science fiction novel, Jules Verne also possessed a hidden side that was encrypted into all his works-his active participation in the occult milieu of late-nineteenth-century France. Among the many esoteric secrets to be found are significant clues to the Rennes-le-Ch teau mystery, including the location of a great treasure in the former Cathar region of France and the survival of the heirs to the Merovingian dynasty. Verne?s books also reveal Rosicrucian secrets of immortality, and some are constructed, like Mozart?s The Magic Flute, in accordance with Masonic initiation. The passe-partout to Verne?s work (the skeleton key that is also the name of Phileas Fogg?s servant in Around the World in Eighty Days ) lies in the initiatory language he employed to inscribe a second or even third layer of meaning beneath the main narrative, which is revealed in his skilled use of word play, homonyms, anagrams, and numerical combinations. The surface story itself is often a guide that tells the reader outright what he or she should be looking for. Far from innocuous stories for children, Verne?s work reveals itself to be rich with teachings on symbolism, esoteric traditions, sacred geography, and the secret history of humanity.
