What is the basic conflict in the book, Around the World in Eighty Days?
1 Answer | add yours
The most basic conflict is between Phileas Fogg and the world: can he go around the world in 80 days?
Closely related to that are Fogg's clashes with Fix, a private detective who thinks Fogg is a bank robber.
However, Fogg also stands for the new powers of industrialism, and so this could be read as a conflict between new technology and the older world.
