Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A straightforward critical approach to Jack London's most famous novel discussing its influence, historical context and critical reception. Tavernier-Courbin (English, U. of Ottowa) characterizes the novel as an important early work of both Romanticism and Naturalism and offers a broad textual reading covering parallels between London's personal experiences and the novel's themes, including discussion of such concepts as freedom, heroism, justice and fulfillment.
