Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea: A Tour of the Underwater World ( French : Vingt mille lieues sous les mers: Tour du monde sous-marin , "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Seas : A Tour of the Underwater World") is a classic science fiction adventure novel by French writer Jules Verne published in 1870.

The title refers to the distance traveled while under the sea and not to a depth , as 20,000 leagues is over six times the diameter, and nearly twice the circumference of the Earth. [2] The greatest depth mentioned in the book is four leagues. The book uses metric leagues, which are four kilometres each. [3] A literal translation of the French title would end in the plural "seas", thus implying the " seven seas " through which the characters of the novel travel; however, the early English translations of the title used "sea", meaning the ocean in general.

During the year 1866, ships of several nations spot a mysterious sea monster , which some suggest to be a giant narwhal . The United States government assembles an expedition in New York City to find and destroy the monster. Professor Pierre Aronnax, a French marine biologist and narrator of the story, who happens to be in New York at the time, receives a last-minute invitation to join the expedition which he accepts. Canadian whaler and master harpoonist Ned Land and Aronnax's faithful servant Conseil are also brought aboard.

The expedition departs Brooklyn aboard the United States Navy frigate Abraham Lincoln and travels south around Cape Horn into the Pacific Ocean . The ship finds the monster after a long search and then attacks the beast, which damages the ship's rudder. The three protagonists are then hurled into the water and grasp hold of the "hide" of the creature, which they find, to their surprise, to be a submarine very far ahead of its era. They are quickly captured and brought inside the vessel, where they meet its enigmatic creator and commander, Captain Nemo .

Captain Nemo's name is an allusion to Homer's Odyssey , a Greek epic poem . [ citation needed ] In The Odyssey , Odysseus meets the monstrous cyclops Polyphemus during the course of his wanderings. Polyphemus asks Odysseus his name, and Odysseus replies that his name is "Utis" (ουτις), which translates as "No-man" or "No-body". In the Latin translation of the Odyssey , this pseudonym is rendered as " Nemo ", which in Latin also translates as "No-man" or "No-body". Similarly to Nemo, Odysseus must wander the seas in exile (though only for 10 years) and is tormented by the deaths of his ship's crew.

Jules Verne several times mentions Commander Matthew Fontaine Maury , "Captain Maury" in Verne's book, a real-life oceanographer who explored the winds, seas, currents, and collected samples of the bottom of the seas and charted all oceans. Verne would have known of Matthew Maury's international fame and perhaps Maury's French ancestry.
