Abstract:

We do not present this most popular novel by French writer most widely read in the world: the breathless journey of Phileas Fogg, his valet Passepartout, and Princess Aouda, but give it henceforth as part of world literary heritage. Their adventure marks the end of the age of exploration to open the era of modernity: it is hereafter a straight line in space-time reduced to a single dimension that travels around the world. But this linear journey, far from being a pathetic return to the starting point, it is primarily in the field of transformation: the eccentric gentleman who returns to 7 Saville Row has become the happiest of men.
