Jules Verne

Popularly known as the Father of Science Fiction, Jules Verne was a French novelist, poet and playwright, who turned the world of science fiction into literature with his most famous books- ‘Journey to the Center of the Earth’, ‘Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea’ and ‘Around the World in Eighty Days’. His books experimented with the technological innovations of the late 19th Century, but explored far more advanced realms than what was then practically possible. He also has written a number of plays, short stories, songs and poems, and his work has been adapted into television and films, theatre, music and even video games. He is also the second most translated author in the world, after Agatha Christie.
