Biography

Jules Gabriel Verne was a French novelist, poet, and playwright. His collaboration with the publisher Pierre-Jules Hetzel led to the creation of the Voyages extraordinaires, a series of bestselling adventure novels including Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864), Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Seas (1870), and Around the World in Eighty Days (1872). His novels, always very well documented, are generally set in the second half of the 19th century, taking into account the technological advances of the time.

Father of Michel Verne. A number of Jules Verne's work published during the last phase of his career and especially posthumously were revised or rewritten by Michel Verne. Jules Verne's original texts were found, restored and published in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.
