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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.
