Journey to the Centre of the Earth

By Jules Verne; William Butcher | Go to book overview

SELECT BIBLIOGRAPHY

AMONGST the modern French editions, Livre de Poche, with forty-four of the seventy-odd volumes, has been the usual reference edition. In 1988, however, Hachette completed publication of the Voyages extraordinaires at a very reasonable price. Michel de l'Ormeraie and Rencontre (reprinted by Edito-Service) are the only other complete editions since the original Hetzel one.

The only British scholarly books on Verne to date are: Andrew Martin's The Mask of the Prophet: The Extraordinary Fictions of Jules Verne ( Oxford University Press, 1990) and William Butcher's Verne's Journey to the Centre of the Self: Space and Time in the 'Voyages extraordinaires' ( Macmillan, 1990). Arthur B. Evans Jules Verne Rediscovered: Didacticism and the Scientific Novel ( New York, Greenwood Press, 1988) is also worth consulting.

Among the French critics, François Raymond and Daniel Compère's Le Développement des études sur Jules Verne (Minard ( Archives des Lettres Modemes), 1976) is still the most readable introduction to 'Vernian Studies'. There are many stimulating collections of articles, notably: L'Herne: Jules Verne, ed. P. A. Touttain ( L'Herne, 1974), Colloque de Cerisy: Jules Verne et les sciences humaines, ed. François Raymond and Simone Vierne ( Union générale d'éditions, 1979), the six volumes of the Minard (Lettres Modernes) series on Verne, especially Machines et imaginaire ( 1980) and Texte, image, spectacle ( 1983), and Modernités de Jules Verne, ed. Jean Bessière ( Presses Universitaires de France, 1988).

The following volumes are also useful: Jean Chesneaux, Une Lecture politique de Jules Verne ( Maspero, 1971, 1982), translated as The Political and Social Ideas of Jules Verne ( Thames and Hudson, 1972), Simone Vierne, Jules Verne ( Balland (Phares), 1986), Alain Froidefond, Voyages au centre de l'horloge: Essai sur un texte-genèse, 'Maître Zacharius' ( Minard, 1988), and Olivier Dumas, Jules Verne ( Lyon, La Manufacture, 1988).

The best biography is Jean Jules-Verne, Jules Verne (Hachette, 1973), translated and adapted by Roger Greaves as Jules Verne: A Biography ( MacDonald and Jane's, 1976). But there are also Charles-Noël Martin, La vie et l'œuvre de Jules Verne ( Michel
