Journey To The Center of The Earth: Jules Verne's First True Piece of Science Fiction (Timeless Classic Books)

Journey To The Center of The Earth: Jules Verne's First True Piece of Science Fiction (Timeless Classic Books)

An online review of Journey To The Center Of The Earth by C.T. Hunter - Verne's first true piece of Science Fiction (and one of the earliest of all that genre) is nothing less than fantastic. A short and simple story that will be enjoyed by readers of all ages, this is a 'Must Read' for all fans of science fiction. With a heavy dose of legitimate science, Verne gives this story a strong feel of authenticity that has been forgotten in much of today's SF novels. Verne's imaginary subterranean world reveals the powerful vision of the fantastic that he has become known for as a pioneer of SF. Richly detailed and certainly out of this world, Verne's creation has inspired science fiction writers and even scientists themselves for over one and a half centuries. The characters that people this novel are some of Verne's most unforgettable. The eccentric and reckless Professor Liedenbrock presents the stereotypical scientist obsessed with discovery even at the expense of safety and practicality. The stoic Hans represents the fearless devotion and calmness under fire that we still proscribe to the man's man frontiersman. And the frightened and pessimistic Axel provides the perfect reluctant hero. Each of these characters have helped shape the personas of innumerable other characters since their creation. A non-stop adventure to a fantastical world, this book remains one of my favorite in its genre. Its label as a young adult novel in unfortunate, in that people of all ages will find this one highly enjoyable. Exciting, amusing, thought-provoking, this book is not to be missed. Highly recommended!

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.

Jules Verne on Film: A Filmography of the Cinematic Adaptations of His Works, 1902 through 1997

Jules Verne on Film: A Filmography of the Cinematic Adaptations of His Works, 1902 through 1997

Jules Verne - Voila! - is a name that resonates with visions of fantastic adventures and images of exotic exploits. In his voyages extraordinaires, the noted French author integrates his encyclopedic knowledge of science and geography with his ability to tell fascinating and entertaining tales, taking his readers on unprecedented journeys across the globe, into the earth, and out into space. This revered writer, who with his boundless imagination had hoped to contribute substantially to the world of letters, has surpassed that expectation to become coincidentally a significant influence on film. This comprehensive filmography not only offers an incisive analysis of Verne's epic creations, but also presents an examination of the films inspired by his stories and characters. If one tries to think of all the films adapted from the works of Jules Verne, a fair sampling might be easy to come up with. If one looks more closely at the plots and motifs of many other films, science fiction and otherwise, their origins are revealed to have been derived from Verne. For example, most film enthusiasts are familiar with Disney's Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and a few may even be aware of the 1916 silent version. But Verne's classic undersea novel also provided the underpinnings for such other movies as Fantastic Voyage (1966) and Innerspace (1987). The central arrangement is by Verne's title with a brief thematic analysis of the novel. The entry then presents in chronological order all cinematic adaptations of that work, allowing the user to make comparative analyses of not only the movies but also their relationships to Verne's original story. Filmographic data are provided for each adaptation, along with a plot synopsis that blends critical commentary with an examination of the connection between the movie and Verne's work.

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.

Quicklet - Jules Verne's The Mysterious Island

Quicklets: Your Reading Sidekick! Our Hyperink Quicklets include an overall summary, chapter commentary, key characters, literary themes, fun trivia, and recommended related readings. ABOUT THE BOOK If you are native to the US, you may not have heard much about Jules Vernes The Mysterious Island. Perhaps you may have heard of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea or Around the World in 80 Days? No? Not those either? Well you shouldnt feel too bad. Regardless of the reason for said limited knowledge, it maybe true that if you are not particularly science-fiction inclined nor a fan of substantial 600 pages+ scientific books, it could at least somewhat explain your status on the subject. Even for those who grew up in a French-speaking country (such as myself), Jules Verne, although well-known, was not exactly an author that was widely read in school. Even as a sci-fi fan of tender age, I already knew that Jules Verne was not for those who were playing around and I have good reason to believe that I wasnt the only one feeling that way either. MEET THE AUTHOR A current San Francisco Bay Area resident, Natacha Pavlov has been an avid reader and writer since her early years spent growing up in Brussels, Belgium. She earned her B.A. in Comparative World Literature from San Francisco State University and constantly flirts with the notion of earning her Masters/PhD someday. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK For his voyage series, Verne had wanted to create a newer, modern version of Robinson Crusoe or deserted island-inspired piece. However, according to www. unmuseum.org, this major novel had a rough start, and his first attempt, Uncle Robinson, was flatly rejected by his publisher Hetzel, questioning the novels lack of science and suggesting a complete start-over. Sure enough, Vernes second draft proved favorable for publishing. True to the Robinsonade literary style, The Mysterious Island chronicles the adventures of 5 castaways stranded on a deserted island. The castaways basically start off with nothing but soon learn to master their environment, yet eventually notice that mysterious things are happening on the island. The castaways first write it off as divine guidance, but as the help given becomes increasingly more scientific in nature, the novels adventure starts to take form and the mystery is eventually resolved. By using this dual imagerymysticism vs. scienceJules Verne could have been highlighting the way both God and science help people in trouble, since he was both a man of faith and a science enthusiast.

Early Stories of Jules Verne

Early Stories of Jules Verne

This volume includes all of Verne's earlier stories as he himself thought worth preserving. These he gathered in later years, and had some of them reissued by his Paris publishers. "A Drama in the Air," was, as Verne himself tells us, his first published story. It appeared soon after 1850 in a little-known local magazine called the "Mus e des Families." The tale, though somewhat amateurish, is very characteristic of the master's later style. In it we can see, as it were, the germ of all that was to follow, the interest in the new advances of science, the dramatic story, the carefully collected knowledge of the past, the infusion of instruction amid the excitement of the tale. Similarly we find "A Winter in the Ice" to be a not unworthy predecessor of The Adventures of Captain Hatteras and all the author's other great books of adventure in the frozen world. Here, at the first attempt, a vigorous and impressive story introduces us to the northland, thoroughly understood, accurately described, vividly appreciated and pictured forth in its terror and its mystery. "The Pearl of Lima" opens the way to all those stories of later novelists wherein some ancient kingly race, some forgotten civilization of Africa or America, reasserts itself in the person of some spectacular descendant, tragically matching its obscure and half-demoniac powers against the might of the modern world. "The Mutineers" inaugurates our author's favorite geographical device. It describes a remarkable and little-known country by having the characters of the story travel over it on some anxious errand, tracing their progress step by step. Thus, of these five early tales, "The Watch's Soul" is the only one differing sharply from Verne's later work. It is allegorical, supernatural, depending not upon the scientific marvels of the material world, but upon the direct interposition of supernal powers.

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.

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.

Jules Verne's The Underground City: "The earth does not need new continents, but new men.

Jules Verne's The Underground City: "The earth does not need new continents, but new men.

The Underground City by Jules Verne centers around one of the most important natural resources that was behind the Industrial Revolution: Coal. The events of the story take place among the mining community of Aberfoyle, near Stirling, Scotland. All starts when a superior named Simon Ford asks Engineer James Starr to resume the exploitation of the area which has always been believed to be mined out. They soon discover a considerable, unexplored deposit of coal, which allows them to build a whole city under the earth?s surface. Numerous unexplainable phenomena follow and multiply until they discover, amid a coal vein, a dying young girl who has never had any contact with daylight before. Verne?s engaged story-telling and detailed descriptions reveal his accurate knowledge of coal mining techniques as well as his profound readings in local folklore. His factual references are almost always combined with pure imagination, which often leads to such scientific inexactitudes that can only be detected by modern readers. Nonetheless, Verne?s eccentric wanderings of the imagination have predicted many technological inventions and scientific discovery of the twentieth century.

Propeller Island is a science fiction novel by French author Jules Verne. It was first published in 1895 as part of the Voyages Extraordinaires. A French string quartet, traveling from San Francisco to their next engagement in San Diego, is diverted to Standard Island. Standard Island is an immense man-made island designed to travel the waters of the Pacific Ocean. The wealth of residents of the island can only be measured in millions. The quartet is hired to play a number of concerts for the residents during their tour of the islands (Sandwich, Cook, Society) of the South Pacific. The island seems an idyllic paradise; however, it is an island divided in two. The left half's population is led by Jem Tankerdon and is known as the Larboardites. The right half's population is led by Nat Coverley and is known as the Starboardites. Despite the obstacles encountered on their journey, the two parties have a disagreement that threatens the future of the island itself.

The Mask of the Prophet: The Extraordinary Fictions of Jules Verne

The Mask of the Prophet: The Extraordinary Fictions of Jules Verne

This provocative new study contends that Jules Verne was indeed more than just a writer of science fiction or harmless fantasies for children. Placing him squarely within the center of a strong literary tradition, Martin convincingly shows that a recurrent narrative, describing the strange destiny of a masked prophet who revolts against an empire, runs throughout Verne's Voyages extraordinaires. This theme, Martin argues, illuminates the paradoxes of realism and invention, repression and transgression, and imperialism and anarchy. Verne emerges not only as a key to the political and literary imagination of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, but as a model for fiction in general.
