That submarine is the Nautilus, the setting and centerpiece of the novel 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea by Jules Verne. Anticipating the real-world development and application of submarine technology, Verne’s novel tells the story of three men who are rescued from the sea by a myserious craft, capable of travelling under the world’s oceans, that has been wreaking havoc on military and merchant shipping. Hunted as a “sea monster”, the Nautilus is revealed to be the creation of its brilliant commander, the enigmatic Captain Nemo, who has very personal reasons for waging war against the world.
