Présentation de l'éditeur

Jules Verne's Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1870) is a classic science fiction about Captain Nemo and his submarine, the Nautilus. A group of men face a mysterious monster at the sea. They are saved from drowning but are then caught up in some of the Captain's other peculiar missions. Scribiners wrote of Verne that ""Few writers of modern times are comparable with him for fertility of resource, ingenuity, and versatility. His inventive powers seem inexhaustible; his pen as prolific as his fancy." --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

...thought I knew the story from watching the Hollywood film as a child. The book is quite different & stikes a few notes with our world today & how we're damaging it. There's a certain irony in that Captain Nemo beleaves that Mother nature can repair the earth quicker than "man" can destroy it. I'm originaly from England but I've now lived in France for a long time so I kinda liked the very subtle sence of this being translated from the orginal 1850's French. I'm planning on reading it again in the original. It was actually my Kindle screen saver with Jules Vernes image that reminded me that I'd like to read this. Just one little thing I'm yet to find an illustration...David PIKE.

J'ai 61 ans: je lisais ces "comics" quand j'étais tout gamin au Canada. A l'époque, leur prix était de $0,15 et je ne m'en suis pas privé! La présentation actuelle de ces petits livres illustrés est rigoureusement la-même qu'à l'époque. Cela me rappelle une foule de souvenirs.

Je me demande bien qui peut lire Jules Verne de nos jours... Et, quel intérêt aborder Jules Verne en Anglais?

A quoi peuvent bien servir ces BD en anglais aujourd'hui? J'ai deux enfants au Collège. La France est un des pays riches qui donne un enseignement de l'anglais de la plus mauvaise qualité qui soit: nous sommes (à ce sujet) au 17ème rang européen... derrière l'Albanie!! La France est certainement le seul pays au monde où un enfant peut décocher 18/20 en Anglais sans pouvoir parler un traître mot de la langue de Shakespeare!! Ce qui est un comble... C'est en tenant compte de la piètre qualité de l'enseignement de l'Anglais dans ma douce France que j'achète ces livres pour mes enfants:
1) parce que la lecture d'un texte soutenu par l'image favorise la compréhension;
2) parce que les textes produits dans cette série de "comics" sont des résumés d'oeuvres qui comptent parmi les chefs-d'oeuvre de la littérature ... ce qui nous change des Mangas et "tutti quanti". Une bonne façon d'initier des enfants à des "classiques" depuis H G Wells à Alexandre Dumas en passant par Charlotte Bronte et Sir Walter Scott: cela ouvre des horizons au lieu de les fermer.
3) parce que, en lisant ces textes, les enfants acquièrent du vocabulaire! Ce n'est certes pas un Labo Audio-Visuel mais ils apprennent.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 READ REVIEW FOR ***CORRECT TRANSLATION*** 27 juin 2013
Par coolhand - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
There are three significant translations of this book, and amazon's lacklustre book-sorting system creates nothing but chaos when searching for the correct format / translation of this book. I'm here to help!

note: (find the version you are looking for with the ISBN numbers I've provided at the bottom of this review, you can just copy and paste them into the amazon search field and hit GO).

Here are excerpts from the three most common translations:

Paragraph one, translated by Mercier Lewis -
THE YEAR 1866 WAS signalized by a remarkable incident, a mysterious and inexplicable phenomenon, which doubtless no one has yet forgotten. Not to mention rumors which agitated the maritime population, and excited the public mind, even in the interior of continents, seafaring men were particularly excited. Merchants, common sailors, captains of vessels, skippers, both of Europe and America, naval officers of all countries, and the governments of several states on the two continents, were deeply interested in the matter.

Paragraph one, translated by Walter James Miller and Frederick Paul Walter (1996) -
THE YEAR 1866 was marked by a bizarre development, an unexplained and downright inexplicable phenomenon that surely no one has forgotten. Without getting into those rumors that upset civilians in the seaports and deranged the public mind even far inland, it must be said that professional seamen were especially alarmed. Traders, shipowners, captains of vessels, skippers, and master mariners from Europe and America, naval officers from every country, and at their heels the various national governments on these two continents, were all extremely disturbed by the business.

Paragraph one, translated by William Butcher -
The year 1866 was marked by a strange event, an unexplained and inexplicable occurrence that doubtless no one has yet forgotten. Without mentioning the rumours which agitated the denizens of the ports and whipped up the public's imagination on every continent, seafaring men felt particularly disturbed. The merchants, shipowners, sea-captains, skippers, and master-mariners of Europe and America, the naval officers of every country, and eventually the various nationals governments on both continents--all became extremely worried about this matter.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WHAT a difference! And who to trust?

From wikipedia:
"Many of Mercier's errors were corrected in a from-the-ground-up re-examination of the sources and an entirely new translation by Walter James Miller and Frederick Paul Walter."

So, the modern translation to seek is either the Walter James Miller / Frederick Paul Walter edition, or the William Butcher edition, depending on your preference for the above excerpts.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Clever, insightful, and well-written! 24 février 2015
Par Jay Bower - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Mark Twain left no doubt in readers’ minds that he was an American. He believed in the Republic and an entrepreneur-driven free market system. The benefits of these political and economic systems are contrasted against the stifling feudal system that would have been in place in Arthurian England, and indeed in much of Europe into the Nineteenth century. Many norms and traditions of the medieval world suffer at Twain’s wit, including the Catholic Church, monarchies in general, tournament combats between knights, nobility and class-based society, and the political and legal structures that served the desires of the rich while ignoring the needs of the poor. The result is a sarcastic, witty tale of time travel and the introduction of Nineteenth-century technologies and ideas into that Sixth-century world.

While known primarily for his biting wit, it is not all fun and games in Twain’s Arthurian land, and he brought forward several serious issues in his narrative. The author showed that he could write as eloquently about heavy subject matter as he could be flippant and irreverent on lighter topics. The most poignant and moving scenes involved a woman dying of smallpox in her home and a young mother who was hanged for being poor. Mark Twain may have had a bristly, acerbic exterior, but reading these scenes so tenderly described, one sees that the man Samuel Clemens had a deep affection for his fellow human beings, and that justice, mercy and kindness were principles dear to his person.

On the whole, this was an enjoyable book to read. By today’s standards, there is not much action in it, but it is well-written and continually keeps the plot moving through the introduction of new incidents and characters. The Yankee, Hank Morgan, is a driver of much of the plot, and so it is easy to connect with him as he makes things happen in King Arthur’s world.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Ingenious but Tedious 26 octobre 2015
Par William J. Higgins,III - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
A clever imagination on being transported back in time to King Arthur days, but at times tedious due to Twain’s dialect of 6th century prose which tends to slow the reader here and there.

After Hank Morgan falls unconscious due to a blow on the head in the nineteenth century, he awakens in 6th century England. Sentenced to death, he convinces King Arthur and other dignitaries of his prophesying into the future. Since he is already aware of the solar eclipse in a few days...he threatens to remove the sun. They play the waiting game. And sure as it happens and people are in a panic, he brings back the sun. He is now Arthur’s first minister...aka, “The Boss”...much to the envy of Merlin.

To further demonstrate his prophetic abilities...with cunning and common sense...Hank restores the ‘Holy Fountain’; assists a forlorn damsel of captive ladies in the Ogre’s Castle; meets and out maneuvers Arthur’s sister, the infamous witch Queen Morgan le Fay.

Hank despises royalty, nobility, monarchy, knight-errantry, social inequities, the overruling Church, slavery, etc. and attempts to modernize the country to a democracy. To improve the culture and civilization of these times, he introduces telephones, newspapers, bicycles, sewing machines and baseball among several other amenities.
He and Arthur disguise themselves as common folks and travel throughout the kingdom, which later results in them taken as slaves. Many adventures and mishaps keep the pages turning...then turmoil ensues with a twist of a finale.
Quite the satire on several levels.

Side Bar: This review is for Twain's "King Arthur" book...for some reason, as with a few other reviewers, it is also under his "Mississippi" book...both of which are published by the Dover people. For my "Mississippi" review I had to place it under another publisher. Amazon needs to get it together.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Missing critical section of story!!! 6 mars 2014
Par Ellen Sue Perry - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The story is great. However, this version is missing the Word of Explanation which sets up the whole story. My son was reading this for school and - not knowing the section was missing - was completely lost for understanding. After reading the whole book, and trying to discuss the story with him, we made the horrible discovery that this edition was missing this critical piece. Make sure you buy a complete edition and not this one.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 If you think Bing Crosby's 1949 movie was anything like... 9 novembre 2012
Par Rick O - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
If you think Bing Crosby's 1949 movie was anything like Mark Twain's fantasy classic published in 1889...Forget It! Like the precursor novels,'Gulliver's Travels' written in 1726 by Jonathan Swift and 'Alice in Wonderland' written in 1865 by Lewis Carroll were made into movies that are barely representative of the original novels. The film starring Bing Crosby was a musical / comedy only touching on the very basic part of Twain's novel.Mark Twain's view of England's Lifestyle in 528 was very harsh pertaining to church and throne to say the least.On page 246, he says..." if one could but force it ( manhood ) out of its timid and suspicious privacy, to overthrow and trample in the mud any throne that ever was set up and any nobility that ever supported it". The book has none of the film's niceties, instead it graphically tells of unjust hangings,stake burnings, murder, slavery, and an unfair caste system. This is a brilliant novel written 113 years after the Revolutionary War and 24 years after the Civil War. The contents truly reveal Mark Twain's political and social views, which I think are worthy of the study they have received. For further information on his thoughts see: 'Autobiography of Mark Twain: Volume 1, Reader's Edition (Mark Twain Papers)'.

In the year 1879, Hank Morgan ( his name is only mentioned once ), an arms factory foreman, gets into a fight with a man named Hercules ( no, not him ) and wakes up under a tree in King Arthur's Camelot in the year 528! He is captured by the less then adequate knight, Sir Kay. At first Hank thinks he is in an insane asylum, but then as he is brought before The Knights of the Round Table to receive justice, he realizes that he really is in the sixth century. He is stripped naked and sent to the dungeon and sentenced to be burned at the stake the next day. The page, Clarence, visits Hank in the dungeon and is convinced by Hank that Hank's a super magician. Clarence becomes Hank's right hand man. Hank remembers that the next day will have a total eclipse of the sun. He warns King Arthur and Merlin the Magician that he will blot out the sun if they attempt to burn him at the stake. The next day they don't believe him and as they start the fire under Hank, the sun starts to go dark! The King wants Hank to stop it and become the second most powerful man in Camelot. Hank waits for the eclipse to pass and now becomes known as The Boss to the chagrin of Merlin, now a vowed enemy of The Boss.

The Boss with the help of Clarence secretly starts many modern businesses, such as; a telephone system, a newspaper business, a railroad, army and naval academies, an arms factory, an electric company and an advertising company with the knights displaying the ads on their armour, just to mention a few of his enterprises. King Arthur requires The Boss to go on a quest with the damsel, Sandy, to save enslaved princesses from three ogres! It turns out to be a pig sty with three farmers. He returns to Camelot a hero with his now beloved Sandy. He then has many adventures in Camelot, such as; jousting tournaments with the knights armed with lances and The Boss with a pistol ( who do you think won? ), the blowing up of Merlin's Tower, the magical repair of the fount at the Valley of Holiness, and many more. At this point The Boss decides to go incognito with King Arthur into the realm of the peasants. They find many injustices and wrongs amongst the people, but before they can return to the castle, they are captured by a earl and sold into slavery. They are accused of murder and sentenced to hang. The Boss escapes and calls Clarence for help. The next day just before they are to be hanged, Lancelot and 500 knights arrive on bicycles to save the day!

The ensuing years are good for The Boss, his wife Sandy and their daughter, Hello-Central ( that's right! ). Unbeknownst to The Boss, Merlin has made his family sick, so The Boss takes his family away from England and goes on a long cruise/ vacation to heal. That's when :The expression [the shit hits the fan] is related to, and may well derive from, an old joke. A man in a crowded bar needed to defecate but couldn't find a bathroom, so he went upstairs and used a hole in the floor. Returning, he found everyone had gone except the bartender, who was cowering behind the bar. When the man asked what had happened, the bartender replied, 'Where were you when the shit hit the fan?' [Hugh Rawson, "Wicked Words," 1989] This is the best part of the book, the last 100 pages, or so. I never could have predicted the ending. The interesting thing about this book is that Mark Twain is the narrator! The book starts out with Twain on a tour of the Warwick Castle. He is approached by a old man seemingly knowledgeable about the castle and the knights. The old man starts to tell Twain his story from thirteen centuries ago, but grows weary at the Warwick Arms, and before retiring to his room, he hands Twain the manuscript to read. This was a great book and if you only read one classic this year...make it this one!
