Description

Volume 9 of the Palik Series, published in conjunction with the North American Jules Verne Society


Translated with an introduction and notes,

by Danièle Chatelain and George Slusser

 

Here is not only a treasure, but a literary revelation—the very first novel by Jules Verne. Finished by the age of twenty and under the influence of Edgar Allan Poe, A Priest in 1835 was composed before Verne encountered any editors to hone his storytelling skills. Yet this tyro effort is a masterpiece, a gothic tale told in a modernist style with a nonlinear narrative. Noted science fiction scholars Danièle Chatelain and George Slusser offer this first English translation, with extensive critical commentary. A Priest in 1835 reveals that Verne not only had the prophetic skills that would render him the father of science fiction, but a technique that would win him a place among the vanguard of 21st century authors. Vintage early engravings reveal the novel’s actual settings, in Verne’s home town of Nantes.
