Summary
  • "Verne wrote this play in the middle of his life, between his optimistic (science helps humanity and is good) and pessimistic (science is dangerous and bad) works; the play is a vehicle for Verne to ask himself and his readers whether science, technology, and the pursuit of knowledge are good or bad. He used the play to pose questions about life and wisdom that are still important to us today."
  • "This special edition of Journey Through the Impossible includes several important features that will enhance the reader's appreciation for the play. Edward Baxter's compelling English translation is augmented by a revealing Introduction written by Jean-Michel Margot, president of the North American Jules Verne Society, which places the play in historical context and explains its importance to Verne's corpus. Detailed references and explanatory notes by Margot expand upon important terms and concepts in the play and provide additional insights into the author
  • Many wonderful illustrations from the original set designs and a reproduction of a page from a lost scene of the play combine with spectacular original illustrations by artist Roger Leyonmark created specifically for this edition of the work. Leyonmark's artistry will transport readers to the world of Jules Verne on stage."--Jacket
