Trivia Crack Answer: Nemo
About Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea
The name of the captain of the submarine in “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea” is Nemo. “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea” was written by Jules Verne, and was published in 1870. “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea” is considered one of the greatest pieces of science fiction ever written, and follows Nemo’s submarine, the “Nautilus.” The title “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea” refers to the Nautilus’ journey around the world’s oceans, where the characters see all kinds of wondrous sights, including coral reefs, the ice of Antarctica, and the city of Atlantis. The captain of the submarine, Captain Nemo, built the submarine in order to escape from civilization, and is haunted by the death of his family, which he lost during an unspecified war. Disillusioned with the rest of humanity, Captain Nemo created the Nautilus to escape and explore the oceans. Over the course of “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea,” several crew members die in encounters with sharks and the famous giant squid, causing Captain Nemo further anguish, echoing the story of Odysseus, the Greek hero who was forced to wander the seas for ten years with his crew, encountering dangerous creatures and places.
