Overview

From "Around the World in 80 Days" to "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea", millions of readers around the world have enjoyed the works of Jules Verne, the father of science fiction and one of the most important literary figures of all time. Particularly enjoyable is the autobiographical section that meticulously compiles all references Verne made in his sole autobiographical piece, "Memories of Childhood and Youth," with those made to a variety of journalists. There is also an in-depth, annotated listing of all English language versions of Verne's novels, an analysis of recurring themes in his work, and a detailed discussion of the filmed versions of his books. The authors trace each variation in Verne's published work, including "Paris in the Twentieth Century".
