La métaphore au service de l'imaginaire géographique: Vingt mille lieues sous les Mers de Jules Verne (1869)

Abstract : Our objective in this article is to analyze the role of metaphor in the construction of the geographical imagination as reflected by Jules Verne's Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. The novelist uses this rhetorical figure in a variety of ways, bridging two worlds generally thought to be diametrically opposed –the earth and the sea. Following in the wake of Michel Roux's analysis (2000), which depicts Verne's novel as emblematic of the “losed world paradigm” we show that through the use of metaphor, which underpins this evocation of a magical, fantastic world, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea is highly representative of the “orld lines paradigm.”
