Today we take for granted the exploration of the fascinating submarine depths of the oceans, so ubiquitous are its many representations on our screens. It is therefore surprising to realise that in his thrilling 1869 novel Jules Verne was anticipating much which was then not even imagined by science.
The enigmatic Captain Nemo takes his awe-inspiring Nautilus around the Oceans of the world exploring the deep with its wonders and horrors. The story is narrated by Professor Aronax, who, though enthralled and fascinated by all that Captain Nemo shows him, fears that he and his companions may never escape from this submarine fortress.
