Caprona Original map of Caprona, drawn by Burroughs (1917) The Land That Time Forgot location Creator Edgar Rice Burroughs Genre Lost World Type Fictional island Notable characters Bowen J. Tyler, Lys La Rue Caprona (also known as Caspak) is a fictitious island in the literary universe of Edgar Rice Burroughs's Caspak trilogy, including The Land That Time Forgot, The People That Time Forgot, and Out of Time's Abyss. Contents 1 The Island 2 Films 3 Influences 4 References 5 External links The Island In the first novel, Caprona is described as a land mass near Antarctica, first reported by the (fictitious) Italian explorer Caproni in 1721, the location of which was subsequently lost. The island is ringed by high cliffs, making it inaccessible to all but the most intrepid explorers. It has a tropical river teeming with primitive creatures extinct elsewhere and a thermal inland sea, essentially a huge crater lake, whose heat sustains Caprona’s tropical climate. Burroughs postulates a unique biological system for his lost world, in which the slow progress of evolution in the world outside is recapitulated as a matter of individual metamorphosis. This system is only hinted at in The Land That Time Forgot; presented as a mystery whose explication is gradually worked out over the course of the next two novels, it forms a thematic element serving to unite three otherwise rather loosely linked stories. The island is also called Caspak by its native humanoid inhabitants - thus the name of the trilogy. Caprona is referenced in Alan Moore's almanac The World of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and in Alberto Manguel and Gianni Guadalupi's 1980 tome, The Dictionary of Imaginary Places. Films Caprona is featured in several films, including 1975 and 1977 Amicus Productions' adaptations of The Land That Time Forgot and The People That Time Forgot, and in the 2009 Asylum adaptation of The Land That Time Forgot, although the Asylum version re-imagines the island as existing within the Bermuda Triangle. Influences Caprona, along with Jules Verne's Mysterious Island are probably partial inspirations for the popular television series Lost, and the creators of that show have cited other influences, including the novel Lord of the Flies, the movie Cast Away and the video game Myst.
