There was a strong interest in the mysterious southern continent by 19th and early 20th century writers because the Antarctican mainland was only "discovered" by Western explorers in the early 19th century. So the writers of that time had the enormous imagination to write about the just discovered continent. However the interest in the continent waned over time.
