About Jules Verne

  • Jules Gabriel Verne (; French: [?yl gab?j?l v??n]; 8 February 1828 – 24 March 1905) was a French novelist, poet, and playwright. Verne's collaboration with the publisher Pierre-Jules Hetzel led to the creation of the Voyages extraordinaires, a widely popular series of scrupulously researched adventure novels including Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864), Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1870), and Around the World in Eighty Days (1873). Verne is generally considered a major literary author in France and most of Europe, where he has had a wide influence on the literary avant-garde and on surrealism.
  • His reputation was markedly different in Anglophone regions where he had often been labeled a writer of genre fiction or children's books, largely because of the highly abridged and altered translations in which his novels have often been printed (until the 1980s, when his "literary reputation ...
  • began to improve".)Verne has been the second most-translated author in the world since 1979, ranking between Agatha Christie and William Shakespeare.
  • He has sometimes been called the "Father of Science Fiction", a title that has also been given to H.
  • G.
  • Wells, Mary Shelley, and Hugo Gernsback.
