About Jules Verne

Jules Verne was born into a family with a seafaring tradition in Nantes, France in 1828. Verne was sent to Paris to study law, but once there, he quickly fell in love with the theater. He was soon writing plays and opera librettos, and his first play was produced in 1850. When he refused his father's entreaties to return to Nantes and practice law, his allowance was cut off, and he was forced to make his living by selling stories and articles. Soon he was turning out imaginative stories such as "Five Weeks in a Balloon" (1863), "Journey to the Center of the Earth" (1864), and "From the Earth to the Moon "(1865), which were immensely popular all over the world. His ability to envision the next stage in man's technological progress produced "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" (1870) and "Michael Strogoff "(1876). His biggest success came with "Around the World in Eighty Days "(1872). Verne's books made him famous and rich. In 1876, he bought a large steam yacht in which he could write more comfortably than on shore. His books were widely translated, dramatized, and later filmed. He died in Amiens in 1905.
