Transcript of 20,000 leagues under the sea

United States of America Japan Indonesia Antartica Africa Middle East South America Great Britain Norway France Jules Verne Early life Jules Verne was born in Nantes, France and was born on Feburary 8th, 1828.
In Nates, he saw ships, and schooners in the port, and out at sea which inspired his imagination for traveling, and adventuring.
He also started to write plays and became a stockbroker as his plays couldn't generate enough money to support himself.
After he was financially stable, he married Honorine de Viane and published his first book "The 1857 Salon" Fr France Papua New Guinea Education Jules Verne was educated in a boarding school in France.
In boarding school, he started to capture his passion of short stories and poetry.

He later dropped out of law and started to do theater although his father didn't like it. Later Life Other Works Jules Verne did lots of other works besides a book writer.
Jules Verne published short stories such as "Castles in California."
He also wrote articles in Newspapers such as "An Ideal City" Recognition 20,000 leagues under the sea is considered a classic book.
I believe that 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is considered a classic because it has been written by an author who has wrote lots of Classic books and because it is very old and read a lot.
I believe this book deserves to be a classic because it is very old, and is one of the best novels written by Verne. Setting The book takes place in the Pacific, Indian, and Atlantic Ocean and in the Mediterranean, and Red Sea.
It takes place at different depths and locations in those seas.
The locations in the book are off the coast of Japan, an Indonesian island, Red Sea coasts, Arabian tunnel, Mediterranean sea bottom, Antarctica, off the coast of South America, East coast of North America, coast of France and Britain, Vanikoro, Crespo, Keeling Islands , Torres Straits, and finally the coast and land of Norway.

31. After regaining consciousness, Aronnax finds himself in a
fisherman's hut in Norway with Ned and Conseil. Favorite Character My favorite character in 20,000 leagues under the sea is Captain Nemo because he is very mysterious and not much is revealed about him.
He disappears frequently in the book so it makes you wonder where he goes
He also has a really awesome electric gun and fights a giant squid. Favorite Part My favorite part of the book is when the ship that is unidentified attacks the Nautilus and Captain Nemo is sort of Angry and in my mind, has a challenge accepted face and attacks the ship a sends it to the bottom.
I like it because it is really funny on how they describe Nemo's face and how the characters react.
I also like how Nemo is always yelling during this time and how he yells "Strike, mad vessel! Shower your useless shot! And then, you will not escape the spur of the Nautilus. But it is not here that you shall perish! I would no have your ruins mingle with those of the Avenger!" Themes I think the 2 important themes in this novel are Perseverance and Depression as both themes occur in the novel in at least 2 different parts in the book.
Perseverance appears when the Trio, Aronnax, Conseil, and Ned Land try to escape the Nautilus a lot during the 9 month journey under the sea.
It also appears when they are trying to escape Antarctica when they are trapped and start to break there way out without giving up hope that they will make it out alive.
Depression is another theme of this book because Captain Nemo is Depressed because most likely, his family is dead and 2 of his crew member are dead.
Depression is also a theme because Captain Nemo cries and looks sad when his crew members died and when he looks at a portrait of his family, and he is not seen after the giant squid attack until the end of the book.
