Biographie de l'auteur
Jules Gabriel Verne (8 February 1828 – 24 March 1905) was a French novelist, poet, and playwright best known for his adventure novels and his profound influence on the art of science fiction. Born to wealthy parents in the seaport of Nantes, Verne trained to be a lawyer, but quit the profession to write for magazines and the stage. His widely popular series of scrupulously researched adventure novels includes Journey to the Center of the Earth, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, and Around the World in Eighty Days. Verne is generally considered a major literary author. He is sometimes called "The Father of Science Fiction." --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.
