The excerpt represents the core issue or deciding factor on which you must meditate, and is drawn from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne:|
on the ninetieth degree; and I take possession of this part of the globe,
equal to one-sixth of the known continents."
"In whose name, Captain?"
"In my own, sir!"
Saying which, Captain Nemo unfurled a black banner, bearing an "N"
in gold quartered on its bunting. Then, turning towards the orb of day,
whose last rays lapped the horizon of the sea, he exclaimed:
"Adieu, sun! Disappear, thou radiant orb! rest beneath this open sea,
and let a night of six months spread its shadows over my new domains!"
