- Teaches both Professor Arronax and Nemo. Ned: The Uneducated By Jules Verne Analyzed by Kevin Wan Thesis Thesis: Jules Verne is trying to show that no matter how powerful you are you can still learn from someone who you perceive to be lesser than you. Proffesor Arronax -Protagonist
-Non confrontational
-Is a naturalist
-Does not feel like a prisoner -"A strange twilight world opened up before me, and I felt as the first man to set foot on another planet, an intruder in this mystic garden of the deep" (pg. 142) -Characters more important.
- Actual plot isn't that interesting
no twists
not a thriller “I have a sick man on board, can you help him?” (pg. 432) “Strike, mad vessel! Shower your useless shot! And then, you will not escape the spur of the Nautilus."(pg.189). They are the assassins, the dealers in death. I am the avenger! Is murder a right reserved for that hated nation? They've already taken everything else from me. Everything but my secrets. The secret of my submarine boat and the energy that propels it, they tried! They cast me to prison and when they failed, when they failed, they tortured my wife and young son to death.” (pg.96) “God Almighty! Enough! Enough!” (p.567). -Being a professor, he believed what he read, wasn't as observant to things in front of him.
-Ned, an uneducated man, opens his eyes.
-Finally gets him to escape
-Goes to show you can truly learn something from anyone. Prefessor Aronnax: Changes Images http://www.20k.com/pages/content/production/sketches/aronnax_large.jpg http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_jSIwJJQzdUU/TNxws3Tqo0I/AAAAAAAAADE/fH6xPUoJ0HM/s1600/nautilus_cannibals.png

I hope you remember that before stooping to pick up pennies.”(pg.245) To live, gentlemen, in the embrace of the sea... only here is there independence... here, I recognize no master... here, I am free.”(pg. 103) "What you fail to understand is the power of hate. It can fill the heart as surely as love can." ( pg.197) “There's a fork on your left, Mr. Land, or aren't you accustomed to utensils?”
