Jules Verne

Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Seas + Around the World in Eighty Days + The Mysterious Island

A mysterious creature, larger and more rapid than a whale, has been haunting the deep: Professor Aronnax has been invited to join a task force to rid the seas of the monster. With him on the Abraham Lincoln are his ever-faithful servant, Conseil, and the harpooner Ned Land. Their glorious mission becomes a nightmare when they are thrown from their ship and taken aboard the «monster» itself: a man-made submarine — «Nautilus» — exploring the wonders of the underwater world. There they are the captives of the inscrutable Captain Nemo. Resigned to their fate, they are shown unimaginable wonders of the oceans: the reef of coral that formed a cemetery, the ice floes of the South Pole, the huge oyster and its priceless pearl, the volcanic wonders of the lost land of Atlantis and a great many more extraordinary sights that were to compensate for their lack of liberty.

    "You like the sea, Captain?"
    "Yes; I love it! The sea is everything. It covers seven tenths of the terrestrial globe. Its breath is pure and healthy. It is an immense desert, where man is never lonely, for he feels life stirring on all sides. The sea is only the embodiment of a supernatural and wonderful existence. It is nothing but love and emotion; it is the "Living Infinite," as one of your poets has said. In fact, Professor, Nature manifests herself in it by her three kingdoms—mineral, vegetable, and animal. The sea is the vast reservoir of Nature. The globe began with sea, so to speak; and who knows if it will not end with it? In it is supreme tranquillity. The sea does not belong to despots. Upon its surface men can still exercise unjust laws, fight, tear one another to pieces, and be carried away with terrestrial horrors. But at thirty feet below its level, their reign ceases, their influence is quenched, and their power disappears. Ah! sir, live—live in the bosom of the waters! There only is independence! There I recognise no masters! There I am free!"

    Certainly a Government might possess such a destructive machine.
