The Lighthouse at the End of the World


The Lighthouse at the End of the World (French: Le Phare du bout du monde) is an adventure novel by French author Jules Verne. Verne wrote the first draft in 1901. It was first published posthumously in 1905. The plot of the novel involves piracy in the South Atlantic during the mid-19th century, with a theme of survival in extreme circumstances, and events centering on an isolated lighthouse. Verne was inspired by the real lighthouse at the Isla de los Estados, Argentina, near Tierra del Fuego and Cape Horn. Although not as well known as Verne's other novels, it is generally considered as good by Verne's fans and the literature critics. The novel was adapted into a movie, The Light at the Edge of the World (1971).
