Summary note:
A hundred years after his death, Jules Verne (1828-1905) has in the popular imagination become synonymous with prediction of the future. Yet the actual texts of Verne's major novels (the vast series known as the Voyages extraordinaires) still remain unknown to many. The popular (and false) image of Verne as a foreteller of the future often comes not through what he actually wrote, but through films and other adaptations of his work. This book sets out to challenge an enduring legacy of misconceptions about Jules Verne's standing as a novelist by focusing on his innovative, experimental approach.
