Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle

Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle was born May 22, 1859 in the capital of Scotland, Edinburgh in the family of an artist and architect.

After Arthur was nine years old, he went to the Hodder boarding school, a preparatory school for Stonyhurst (a large closed Catholic school in Lancashire). Two years later, Arthur moved from Hodder to Stonyhurst. It was during these difficult years at the boarding school that Arthur realized that he had a talent for writing stories.

Jules Verne

Jules Verne is an extremely popular French writer, the founder of science fiction along with Herbert George Wells. Verne’s works, written for both adolescents and adults, captured the adventurous spirit of the 19th century, its charm, scientific progress and inventions.

Many of Verne’s ideas turned out to be prophetic. Among his most famous books is the adventure novel Around the World in 80 Days (1873).

“Ah – what a journey – what a wonderful and unusual journey! We entered the Earth through one volcano, and came out through another. And this other one was more than twelve thousand leagues from Sneffels, from this dreary country of Iceland … We left the area of ​​eternal snows and left behind a gray fog of icy open spaces to return to the azure sky of Sicily! ”(From“ Journey to the Center of the Earth ”, 1864) Continue reading
