Born in Nantes, France in 1828, Jules Verne seems destined to study law. His father was a successful lawyer, Verne went to boarding school and later went to Paris, where he received a law degree in 1851. However, in his childhood, he was attracted by his first teacher and the story of the nautical adventures and shipwrecks he shared. Frequent visits to the sailors at Nantes Pier. During his studies in Paris, Verne became friends with the son of the famous novelist Alexander Dumars. Through this friendship, Verne was able to produce his first drama “Broken Straw” at the Dumas Theatre in 1850. A year later, Verne found an article in the Employment Writing magazine that combined his interest in travel, history and science. One of his first stories, “Balloon Journey” (1851) brought together the elements of his later novels so successful. When Verne fell in love with Honorine de Viane Morel, he accepted a brokerage job arranged by her family. The steady income of this job made the couple married in 1857, and four years later they had a child, Michelle. Verne’s literary career will take off in the 1860s when he was introduced to the publisher Pierre-Jules Hetzel, a successful businessman who worked with the greatest French writers of the 19th century, including Victor Hugo. , George Sand and Honoré de Balzac. When Hetzel read Verne’s first novel, “Five Weeks in a Balloon,” Verne will get a breakthrough that will eventually make him commit himself to writing. Hetzel has launched a magazine, education and entertainment magazine that will publish Verne’s novels in succession. Once the final installment enters the magazine, these novels will be published as books as part of an extraordinary voyage. This effort occupied Verne in the rest of his life. By the time he died in 1905, he wrote fifty-four novels for the series. Jules Verne has writing in many types, and his publications include more than a dozen plays and short stories, countless papers and four non-fiction books. However, his reputation comes from his novels. With the fifty-four novels published in Verne’s life, as part of an extraordinary voyage, another eight novels were added due to the efforts of his son Michel. Verne’s most famous and enduring novels were written in the 1860s and 1870s, when Europeans were still exploring and in many cases taking advantage of new global realms. Verne’s typical novel includes a group of men – usually including a brainy person and a muscle man – who developed a new technique that allows them to travel to exotic and unknown places. Verne’s novels bring his readers to the mainland, the ocean, the earth, and even space. Five weeks in the balloon (1863): When the novel was published, the balloon had existed for nearly a century, but the central figure, Dr. Ferguson, developed a device that allowed him to easily change the height of the balloon without relying on ballast. So he can find a favorable wind. Ferguson and his companions crossed the African continent in their balloons, and met extinct animals, cannibals and barbarians along the way. “The Tour of the Earth Center” (1864): The characters in Verne’s third novel did not actually enter the center of the earth, but they did pass through a series of underground caves, lakes and rivers across Europe. The underground world created by Verne is illuminated by glowing green gas, and the adventure encounters everything from pterosaurs to a group of mastodon to a 12-foot-high human. “The Earth Center Tour” is one of Verne’s most sensational and untrustworthy works, but perhaps for these reasons, it is still one of his most popular works.
