It was a secret message by an ancient alchemist, found on a crumbling scrap of parchment. And if Saknussemm was right, then every theory about the molten core of the earth is wrong. Prof. Otto Lidenbrock has to learn the truth. So Lidenbrock, his nephew Axel, and the Icelandic hunter Hans climb down the cone of an arctic volcano and into...

Having assured the members of London's exclusive Reform Club that he will circumnavigate the world in 80 days, Fogg - stiff, repressed, English - starts by joining forces with an irrepressible Frenchman, Passepartout, and then with a ravishing Indian beauty, Aouda. Together they slice through jungles, over snowbound passes, even across an entire isthmus - only to get back five minutes late. Fogg faces despair and suicide, but Aouda makes a new man of him, able to face even the Reform Club again. Around the World in Eighty Days (1872) contains a strong dose of post-Romantic reality plus extensive borrowing from the author's own Journey to England and Scotland - but not a shred of science fiction. Its modernism lies instead in the experimental literary technique, with parallel plots, a narrator constantly made to look foolish, four characters in search of their own unconscious, and a unique twisting of space and time. Verne's classic, a bestseller for over a century, has never appeared in a critical edition before. William Butcher's stylish new translation moves as fast and as brilliantly as Fogg's own journey. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Italo Calvino imagines a novel capable of endless mutations in this intricately crafted story about writing and readers. If on a Winter's Night a Traveler turns out to be not one novel but ten, each with a different plot, style, ambience, and author, and each interrupted at a moment of suspense. Together they form a labyrinth of literatures, known and unknown, alive and extinct, through which two readers, a male and a female, pursue both the story lines that intrigue them and one another.

Edizione integraleCura e traduzione di Maurizio GrassoEra il 1863 quando Jules Verne scriveva questo suo secondo libro, romanzo di anticipazione fantastica, abbandonato alla prima stesura e pubblicato solo nel 1994 dalla casa editrice francese Hachette, che annunciò con grande clamore questa famosa riscoperta. Eppure, le immagini evocate da quello che è diventato uno dei più celebri scrittori d'avventure per ragazzi sembrano fotografie dei giorni nostri. L'invasione tecnologica, le moderne linee della metropolitana, le macchine, la folla, la luce elettrica che illumina i boulevard della Parigi del XX secolo immaginata da Verne, corrispondono in modo incredibile alla realtà di oggi e denotano una straordinaria conoscenza scientifica. L'acutissima lungimiranza di Verne non si ferma però agli aspetti pratici del progresso, ma investe anche la sfera morale, politica e culturale, di cui preconizza la rapida involuzione. E dire che il libro era stato respinto dall'editore Hetzel secondo il quale nessuno avrebbe creduto a quel tempo alle terribili profezie di Verne!«Ma gli uomini del 1960 non si stupivano più alla vista di quelle meraviglie; ne usufruivano tranquillamente, senza gioia... poiché si intuiva che il demone della prosperità li spingeva avanti senza posa e senza quartiere.» Jules Verne(Nantes 1828-Amiens 1905) fu autore di circa sessanta romanzi di viaggi e avventura, spesso ispirati ai processi tecnologici. Tra i più noti: Cinque settimane in pallone (1863), Viaggio al centro della Terra (1864), Dalla Terra alla Luna (1865), I figli del capitano Grant (1867), Il giro del mondo in 80 giorni (1873), L’isola misteriosa (1874) e Michele Strogoff (1876). Di Jules Verne la Newton Compton ha pubblicato Viaggio al centro della Terra, Il giro del mondo in 80 giorni e Ventimila leghe sotto i mari.
