Jules Verne

Jules Verne (1828 - 1905) was born on February 8, 1828, In Nantes, a seaport town in France that shaped his early interest in travel and adventure. He moved to Paris in 1847, where he briefly studied law and worked as a stockbroker before he turned to writing for the stage. His first published novel, Five Weeks in a Balloon (1863) was a colourful adventure about a team of explorers who travel to Africa by hot air balloon. The novel was very successful, and it inaugurated a relationship between Verne and the publisher, Jules Hetzel, that would last for most of their lives. Verne contracted with Hetzel to write three novels per year for serialization in one of the publishers magazines, and the novels he wrote, known collectively as the voyages extraordinaires, where boldly imaginative tales of adventure and daring laced with speculations on developing trends in science and technology. Some, including A Journey to the Centre of the Earth (1864), From the Earth to the Moon (1865), and its sequel Round the Moon (1876), and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1869 - 1870) are recognised today as early landmarks of science fiction. Verne's works were immensely popular not only in France but in England and America were they were translated some years after. The publication of serial instalments of Around the World in Eighty Days in 1872 proved so popular that most of Verne's works thereafter were published in English simultaneous with the French edition. At the time of his death in 1905, Verne had completed more than sixty novels.
