Excerpt
Excerpt: THE CRYPTOGRAM, published in 1881, is the second book dealing with? The Giant Raft. The first part, Eight Hundred Leagues on the Amazon had been as its name suggests, mainly a geographical tale. Readers were this time conducted through the tropical forests and across the boundless prairies of Peru and Brazil. In ?The Cryptogram however, the geographical interest is almost entirely subordinate to the story. The solving of the cryptogram becomes the central feature, in working out which our author shows a skill scarce inferior to that of Poe himself. Here, for the 'first time in the body of his works, Verne takes express care to state his fondness for and indebtedness to the work of Poe, whom he denominates that great analytical genius. He points to Poe's ?Gold Bug as the source of his own tale, calling the earlier story a masterpiece never to be forgotten. The handling and appreciation of cipher writings in The Cryptogram are as different from the superficial explanation of the cipher in Verne's earlier? Center of the Earth as is the appreciation of a master from that of the most idle amateur.
