Jules Verne 20000 Under The Sea – ) on the Galika BNF website What wealth! I immediately began a search with my downloaded (and printed) copy of Verne’s manuscript to compare with my French version.

To my dismay, I soon realized that this manuscript, which served as proof for his publisher Pierre-Jules Hetzel, would not be the same text as the final publication in 1869.

This fact was verified in an article by a scholar named William Butcher, who was able to examine two manuscripts.

And compare them with the final publication As a content editor, my purpose in examining Verne’s original manuscript—point of view, syntactic choices, conceptual intent, content, organization, and judgmental style, etc.—was different from the purpose of Bucher’s scholarship to determine what Hetzel had not done. Appreciate and what Verne has done about it” (43).

Much that he feels betrayed by Verne’s protagonist, Captain Nemo, his relationship with his guest Dr. Aronax, and the journey.

In fact, Butcher proposed republishing Verne’s novel using a combination of Verne’s original text with the current edition.

While it was disappointing for me not to be able to personally compare a private manuscript with the published version, I enjoyed learning new facts about the novel from Butcher’s scholarship.

Second, because of Hetzel’s censorship in Verne’s original manuscript, it is not clear whether Captain Nemo survives the end of chapter 20. Butcher points out that the novel builds to a crescendo of drowning

Attacked by a warship Aronax and his companions escape to the coast of Norway, but Nemo’s fate is uncertain.

Second, in the manuscript did Verne originally write “ne s’était-il pas attacque à un vaivire d’une certaine nation qu’il pouroisvait de sa haine”? with his hatred”] This line does not exist in the published version Therefore, the question arises as to whether Nemo’s attack is against a specific country (48).

Hetzel, not wanting to upset the Russian government, was not interested in a character arc for Nemo and was more interested in commercial gain. Butcher states that this is “a sad outcome for Verne’s greatest hero” (47).

Finally, the location of Nemo’s home is a mystery in the published book; In Verne’s manuscript it is near Tenerife where he is known as “Juan Nemo”. Juan Nemo has a completely different personality: more independent, introspective and a composer

Second, the Captain’s uncooperative behavior towards Aronnax in the published novel leads most readers, especially Americans, to view him as a villain. Most European readers, according to Butcher, support Arunnax’s final condemnation and therefore the captain’s “freedom fighter” (53).

Bucher hypothesized to publish the novel by restoring lost passages due to pressure from publishers. Is it advisable to “mix and match” previously edited versions with the current version? Can one still attach Verne’s name to this new version? Buters claims that Hetzel’s text can no longer be accepted as correct or authentic. “We no longer believe that the published version represents Verne’s original intention” (56).

If this is true, then we also have to “debut” the famous Hollywood “mistranslation of a boulderized text” (56). Out. A statement, n’est-ce pas?

The book was critically acclaimed upon its release and remains so; It is an early novel and considered Verne’s greatest work, along with Around the World in Eighty Days and Voyage to the Earth.

In his self-imposed exile, Captain Nemo seems to have a dual motivation—the search for knowledge and the desire to escape Earth’s civilization. Nemo explains that his submarine is electrically powered and can perform advanced marine exploration; He also tells his new passengers that his secret meaning is that he cannot let them leave – they must stay on board.

They visit many oceanic regions, some real and others fictional Visitors see sunken ships from the Battle of Vigo Bay, the Antarctic ice barrier, the transatlantic telegraph cable, and the lazy waters of Atlantis. They travel to the South Pole and are trapped in an ice storm on the way back, trapped in a narrow gallery of ice from which they are forced to dig themselves out. Travelers don’t even don diving suits, hunt sharks and other marine life in the underwater jungle of Crespo Island with air guns, and even hold an undersized funeral for a crew member who died in a mysterious crash piloted by the Nautilus. When the submarine returns to the Atlantic Ocean, a school of giant squid (“devil fish”) attacks the ship, killing another crew member.
