He traveled to the moon, under the sea and to the center of the earth all without leaving his desk. His vivid imagination created some of the seminal classics of science fiction. Jules Verne was truly a man ahead of his time. The 19th century Frenchman created some of the great futuristic works in the history of literature, including From the Earth to the Moon, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Journey to the Center of the Earth.
Here, BIOGRAPHY® explores the life and works of "the father of science fiction." From his childhood and his early career as a writer of plays and librettos to his rise to fame, the forces that shaped the life and works of the famed futurist are explored. In revealing interviews, authors, editors and filmmakers examine his remarkable legacy, while his great-grandson shares family stories of his famous forefather.
