The classic tale of the wonders and terrors lurking in the deep
A monster has been wreaking havoc in the waters of the Atlantic Ocean. The US government has sent forth a team featuring Pierre Aronnax, a French marine biologist; Ned Land, a Canadian harpoonist; and Aronnax’s servant Conseil to take care of the problem. Their mission: Kill the beast. But what they find is the submarine Nautilus and its helmsman, the fearsome Captain Nemo.
Onboard Nemo’s ship, Aronnax has a vision of ocean life that he never believed possible. In Nemo he sees a man who is entirely liberated yet completely shackled to his past—a scientist with the power to go anywhere in the world but held back by fierce anger. Written in 1870, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea was one of the earliest novels of science fiction literature and has remained a classic of the genre over a century later.
