Jack London - Author

About the Author

John Griffith Chaney — aka Jack London, whose life symbolized the power of will, was the most successful writer in America in the early 20th Century. His vigorous stories of men and animals against the environment, and survival against hardships were drawn mainly from his own experience. An illegitimate child, London passed his childhood in poverty in the Oakland slums. At the age of 17, he ventured to sea on a sealing ship. The turning point of his life was a thirty-day imprisonment that was so degrading it made him decide to turn to education and pursue a career in writing. His years in the Klondike searching for gold left their mark in his best short stories; among them, The Call of the Wild, and White Fang. His best novel, The Sea-Wolf, was based on his experiences at sea. His work embraced the concepts of unconfined individualism and Darwinism in its exploration of the laws of nature. He retired to his ranch near Sonoma, where he died at age 40 of various diseases and drug treatments.

Call of the Wild

Author: Jack London, Cronos Classics Format: eBook Release Date: 07/06/2017

Jack London's novels and ruggedly individual life seemed to embody American hopes, frustrations, and romantic longings in the turbulent first years of the twentieth century, years infused with the wonder and excitement of great technological and historic change. The author's restless spirit, taste for a life of excitement, and probing mind led him on a series of hard-edged adventures from the Klondike to the South Seas. Out of these sometimes harrowing experiences - and his fascination with the theories of such thinkers as Darwin, Spencer, and Marx - came the inspiration for novels of adventure that would make him one of America's most popular writers.The Call of the Wild, considered by many London's greatest novel, is a gripping tale of a heroic dog that, thrust into the brutal life of the Alaska Gold Rush, ultimately faces a choice between living in man's world and returning to nature. Adventure and dog-story enthusiasts as well as students and devotees of American literature will find this classic work a thrilling, memorable reading experience

Der Roman variiert das Thema von Londons Buch Ruf der Wildnis, in dem ein domestizierter Hund sich in ein wildes Tier zuruck verwandelt. Diese Erzahlung wird in Wolfsblut umgekehrt: Hier wandelt sich ein Wildtier in ein zivilisiertes, an den Menschen und die Gesellschaft gewohntes Wesen. Der Roman beginnt mit einer dramatischen Begegnung zwischen hungrigen Wolfen und Menschen mit Schlittenhunden. Es herrscht eine schlimme Hungersnot, und das Rudel Wolfe verfolgt die Menschen und ihre Hunde, um an Nahrung zu kommen. Wolfsbluts Mutter Kische spielt hierbei eine wichtige Rolle; denn sie ist nur zur Halfte ein Wolf. In dieser Zeit lernt sie Wolfsbluts Vater kennen, einen reinrassigen Wolf. Im nachsten Teil des Romans werden Wolfsbluts erste Lebensmonate erzahlt: wie er mit seiner Mutter in ein Indianerlager kommt und dort seine Jugend verbringt. Er wird bald von seiner Mutter getrennt und streitet sich viel mit den anderen Hunden der Indianer. Fur die Indianer stellt sich Wolfsblut als besonders guter Schlittenhund heraus. Wolfsblut wird dann fur ein paar Flaschen Whiskey an einen Mann, der Hundekampfe abhalt und grausam ist, verkauft.
