JULES VERNE

Literary Classic Book Collection. Author Biography

Jules Gabriel Verne (1828 – 1905)

classic book author, literature, jules verne, 20,000 twenty thousand leagues under the seaJules Verne was born in Nantes, France as the eldest of five children and whose imagination was sparked by the countryside near the Loire River; in particular, with the many passing boats.

After attending boarding school, and developing an interest in travel, Verne went to Paris to study, and began writing operettas in 1848. When his father found out about his passion for writing, his father withdrew his financial support, so Verne supported himself as a stockbroker.

Around this time he met with Alexandre Dumas and Victor Hugo. He later married Honorine de Viane Morel, a widow with two daughters, and continued to write. His writings would be helped along by Pierre-Jules Hetzel, an important publisher of the time, and helped publish such works as Journey to the Centre of the Earth, Around the World in Eighty Days and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea.

In 1886, Verne’s 25 year old nephew shot him in the leg with a gun, and was then sent to an asylum.

Jules Verne died in 1905, whilst sick with diabetes.
