In studying marine life, Aronnax briefly mentions Darwin's theory, but does not go into detail. Nemo and Aronnax find the lost city of Atlantis. When The Nautilus is floating near the African coast, Aronnax can see mosques on the shore. Nemo explains that sailors of old used to make sacrifices to their gods before crossing the dangerous Red Sea. Aronnax prays to the sun to appear so that Nemo can correctly calculate whether he's made it to the South Pole.

alert(1) Many critics describe Captain Nemo as one of the greatest villains in literature. Do you see him as only a villain? Why or why not? Use incidents from the book to back up your opinion. Choose and analyze three or four episodes from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea in which Aronnax behaves as a man of intellect and Ned Land behaves as a man of action. Some writers have seen Captain Nemo as a man who defies God. Did you take any theological implications out of this book? Explain your answer. What is the meaning of Captain Nemo's final words, "Almighty God, enough! Enough!"?
