The film The Sea Inside shares the heart warming real life story of a man named Ramon Sampedro. At the young age of twenty-six he suffered an accident while diving into shallow waters of the ocean that left him a quadriplegic. Now at the age of fifty-four, Ramon must depend on his family to survive. His older brother Jose, Jose’s wife, Manuela and their son Javi do their best to take care of Ramon and make him feel loved. Although Ramon is extremely grateful to his family and friends for their help all these years, he has come to see his life as aggravating and unsatisfying. He wishes to die with the little dignity he has left in his life. However, Ramon’s family is dead set against the thought of assisted suicide and the
It promptly fitted a frigate, the Abraham Lincoln, to destroy the beast, and invited Pierre to join them, for his science capabilities. For many months they searched, but could not find this Narwhale anywhere. When they found it, it attacked the ship, disabling it, and sending M. Aronnax, Ned Land (a harpooner) and Conseil (servant of Pierre) overboard. Soon, the three were guests in the Narwhale, now known to be a ship, the Nautilus, commanded by Captain Nemo. During the stay aboard the Nautilus, Pierre Conseil and Ned encounter and discover many wonderful and interesting facts from the sea. Often, they would accompany the captain in an under water expedition. Several of these excursions were to hunt, and others were simply to explore a submarine region. One of the times when the purpose was just to investigate an underwater region, Captain Nemo and M. Aronnax explored the lost city of Atlantis. On a separate occasion, Pierre found that there was a supply of coal underwater that the Nautilus used as a source of fuel. In addition to underwater excursions, the Nautilus itself was on a round the world journey, which accounted for the most exiting time of the book. This was when Captain Nemo was attempting to access the South Pole. That meant passing the Great Ice Barrier, and surviving with very little air. During this rather long voyage, the submarine gets wedged between two icebergs,
In the novel, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea by Jules Verne, the author develops a charming protagonist named professor Arronax. He and his faithful servant Conseil were originally aboard the Abraham Lincoln in search of a cetacean that had been destroying boats worldwide. They were on the boat a few months when the finally found this “cetacean” then it hit the Abraham Lincoln sending Conseil, Professor Aronnax, and his friend Ned Land overboard. They were soon rescued by a submarine. The submarine turned out to be the cetacean that had been destroying ships. They soon met Captain Nemo, a man who wanted to cut himself off from society so he built a submarine that

In 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne, three men are captured by a captain the forces them on an underwater adventure. Captain Nemo uses his advanced technology and thinking to run away from society. The underwater coal mine and how he used it was very helpful to not have to get in contact with humans. Coal is most thought of as a land resource, and because he can get it underwater he doesn’t have to get it from land. Back in the 1860s the ocean was not a very discovered place, so Nemo could go there without being discovered. Nemo says on page 311, “Thereby making me independant of dry land even for that substance.” Going on land to get coal means you probably would see people and have to interact with others. Another good thing
First, imagery is presented through vivid descriptions of the Nautilus, underwater scenery and biota, and the sunken city of Atlantis. Captain Nemo’s submarine, the Nautilus, is described in great detail throughout the book. For example, a bookcase is detailed in this quote, “Tall, black-rosewood bookcases, inlaid with copperwork,
Much like Aronnax, “a oceanic scientist”, Conseil is “intelligent and well educated” “classification-obsessed” person and in most ways a servant to Aronnax (Cain 1, Barrow 2032, Drabble 5). Ned Land, “the forty year old harpooner,” on the other hand “is a man of action, not of scientific analysis, and he is used to the sea’s surface, not its depth” (Barrow 2032). Not being accustomed to the ocean 's depths, but rather it’s surface provides great conflict for Land having been a master hunter of the sea on a boat and not in a submarine. Due to their different professions, their automatic biased opinions shape their actions; Aronnax, Conseil, and Ned Land thus takes different stances when it comes to life on the Nautilus, down to the smallest of things like the food to what Captain Nemo is really like.
Captain Nemo explains to them that they will be held in confinement on the ship for the rest of their lives as he fears they will reveal the ship's secrets. Captain Nemo entertains them with his vast library, and also shows them the saloon. The saloon is part of the ship where most of Captain Nemo studies aquatic life. The room is also transparent allowing them to see the ocean within the ship. M. Aronnax somewhat "befriends" Captain Nemo. His host soon explains the idea of how the Nautilus works. After a few days, M. Aronnax and his companions see no sign of the crew of Captain Nemo himself. Once he returns to his room however, he finds a note of invitation to have an undersea hunting near the island of Crespo with Captain
Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, written by the best selling author Jules Verne, is an enthralling undersea adventure that begins when a mysterious oblong, occasionally phosphorescent “thing”, larger and infinitely faster than a whale, begins attacking boats. The famous oceanographer Professor Pierre Aronnax is invited aboard the Abraham Lincoln to hunt down what he believes to be a giant narwhal, but once they find it, even the superior war boat is no match for this strange creature. Professor Aronnax and his trusty servant Council are thrown overboard and end up on the deck of an oblong, occasionally phosphorescent submarine with their acquaintance Ned Land, a Canadian Harpooner. They are then hostilely brought aboard and told by Captain Nemo that they are never allowed to leave the Nautilus, the boat our three travelers happened upon. After this depressing news, they are offered the opportunity to travel the world underwater and experience wonders only the captain himself has ever seen, which they promptly accept.

Suddenly a devastating
Jules Verne also uses real life examples in his stories. In 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea 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 sampled of the bottom of the seas and charted oceans. Verne would have known of Matthew Maury’s international fame and perhaps Maur’s French ancestry. References are made to other such Frenchmen as Jean-François de Galaup, comte de Lapérouse, a famous explorer who was lost while circumnavigating the globe; Dumont D’Urville, the explorer who found the remains of Lapérouse's ship; and Ferdinand Lesseps, builder of the Suez Canal and the nephew of the sole survivor of Lapérouse's
Food is memories. Five mother sauces. You must find them in your heart. Then, bring them to your pots. That's the secret.
In the story Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea by Jules Verne, a professor named Aronnax and his team decided to set out on a mission in interest of a so called monster that has been attacking ships in the past. In hopes of capturing the monster, the plan did not end up so well for Aronnax and his team. The monster struck the ship they were on and sent them plummeting into the water, without the ship members realizing they were gone. His crew found something in the water and pulled every one up onto it, not realizing what it was that they were climbing on. Before they knew it, they got pulled into the monster itself. The author used diction throughout the story to create mood and develop tone. The author changes the diction based upon the situation. For example if an event is energetic than mellows down into a calm, soothing activity, the mood or tone of the character you are reading about will change dramatically, from speaking in an energized tone, to a calm and mellow voice. This happens throughout this story. From the beginning of the story, with Aronnax and his crew going on a journey in a fortified, organized mood, towards the middle where they get captured and the mood gets energized and more entertaining. This change happens very quickly.
