Greenwood Press. Hardcover. New. Hardcover. 214 pages. Dimensions: 9.3in. x 6.3in. x 0.9in.This brilliant study of Vernes three cycles (1850-62, 1862-86, 1886-1916) analyzes the works from a biographical, sociohistorical, ideological, and narratological point of view. With a deep focus on Vernes pedagogical slant, Evans demonstrates convincingly the parallels between the French authors aim to de-alienate science and his aim to valorize learning, knowledge, and reading (his heroes conquer more knowledge for themselves and for the world). ChoiceThis first modern American study of Jules Verne offers a wide-ranging reappraisal of a very familiar but often misunderstood author and his works. In spite of his status as one of the most translated novelists of all time, Verne and his Voyages ExtraordinaireS and Lt;i have long been neglected in American literary scholarship. This book seeks to reaffirm Vernes significant contribution to the development of early science fiction through a detailed investigation of his romans scientifiques. Evans has focused his study on the didactic dimension of Vernes narratives, which were originally intended to teach the rudements of science and morality to French youth through the medium of popular fiction.
