Book Description Liverpool University Press, Liverpool, 2000. Paperback. Condition: New. First Paperback Edition. Essays on the relationship between Jules Verne and the French literary canon, addressing his much-debated status as a science fiction writer and examining aspects of his work, from a study of his use of narrative technique and defamiliarisation, to the relation his work bears to Surrealism and the repercussions for a modern reassessment of Verne as a writer. Verne has received renewed attention since the publication in 1994 of his "Paris au Vingtieme Siecle", and this has highlighted his importance as a key commentator on the anguishes of modernity. Arthur B. Evans provides a detailed account of the relationship between Verne and the French literary canon, demonstrating the "now-ineluctable trend towards rehabilitation and literary canonization". Daniel Compere exmines narrative technique, versimilitude, defamiliarization, naturalization and dialogism in Verne's work, while Timothy Unwin develops the enquiry into the nature of the Vernian text in discussing the role of science and textual repetition. The interface between realism, utopianism and SF in a number of Verne's novels is investigated by Sarah Capitano. Jules Gabriel Verne 8 February 1828 - 24 March 1905) was a French author who helped pioneer the science-fiction genre. He is best known for his novels A Journey to the Centre of the Earth (1864), From the Earth to the Moon (1865), Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1869-1870), Around the World in Eighty Days (1873) and The Mysterious Island (1875). Verne wrote about space, air, and underwater travel before navigable aircraft and practical submarines were invented, and before any means of space travel had been devised. Consequently he is often referred to as the "Father of science fiction" and a precursor to stemapunk, along with H.G. Wells. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Seller Inventory # 042418

Book Description Liverpool University Press, United Kingdom, 2000. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Although critics continue to debate whether Jules Verne s work is true science fiction (SF), rather than scientific romance, Verne is widely credited as one of the founders of the genre and in the popular imagination, he and SF are seen as largely synonomous. Verne has received renewed attention since the publication in 1994 of his Paris au Vingtieme Siecle , and this has highlighted his importance as a key commentator on the anguishes of modernity. Arthur B. Evans provides a detailed account of the relationship between Verne and the French literary canon, demonstrating the now-ineluctable trend towards rehabilitation and literary canonization . Daniel Compere exmines narrative technique, versimilitude, defamiliarization, naturalization and dialogism in Verne s work, while Timothy Unwin develops the enquiry into the nature of the Vernian text in discussing the role of science and textual repetition.
