  • This unabridged translation brilliantly conveys the novel's tones and range
  • It appears with a distinguished Introduction and Notes, reporting the very first study of the manuscripts, together with revelations about the artistic and scientific references

New to this Edition:

  • A stylistic revision of the translation, rephrasing in the light of repetitions, assonances, and minor inconsistencies.

 
'I am going to sink it.'
'You are not!'
'I am,' he coldly replied. 'Do not take it on yourself to judge me, monsieur.'

French naturalist Dr Aronnax embarks on an expedition to hunt down a sea monster, but discovers instead the Nautilus, a self-contained world built by its enigmatic captain. Together Nemo and Aronnax explore the underwater realms of the globe, undergo a transcendental experience amongst the ruins of Atlantis, and plant a black flag at the South Pole. Nemo's mission is finally revealed to be a violent one-and his methods coldly efficient. 

Verne's classic novel has left a profound mark on subsequent centuries. Its themes are universal, its style alternately humorous and grandiose, its construction masterly. 

This new and unabridged translation brilliantly conveys the range of this seminal work. The volume also contains unpublished information about the novel's inception.
