Description:

Jules Verne - The Eternal Adam and other Stories
selected by Peter Costello

This narrative from beyond the tomb enabled him to imagine the terrible drama which is forever played throughout the universe, and his heart overflowed with pity.  Bleeding from the countless wounds from which those who had ever lived had suffered before him, bending beneath the weight of these vain efforts accumulated throughout the infinity of time, Zartog Sofr'-Ai-Sr gained, slowley and painfully, an intimate conviction of the eternal recurrence of events.
