Abstract:

In this book Verne strikes again the bolder note of imagination and creation as his daring explorers actually reach the pole. A well-managed, well-constructed and convincing story depicting what the explorers saw and did, rising to the startling climax of the volcano and the madman's climb. Many critics have selected this in its turn as the most powerful of Verne's works. It is notable that, with the exception of the open sea and the volcano, the world which Verne describes in his imagination coincides closely with what has been discovered to exist in reality -- the same barren lands, the same weary sledge journey, the same locations of land and sea, the "red snow," the open leads in the ice. Verne's predictions, wild as they sometimes seem, are all so carefully drawn to the truth.
