A self-taught writer whose adventurous life often rivaled the plots of his novels, Jack London was that rare entity, an author who enjoyed both popular and critical success. Best known for such works as The Call of the Wild, White Fang, The Sea-Wolf, and Martin Eden, his literary explorations confront notions of courage and comment on the relationship between the human and natural realms. Introduced by Harold Bloom, this collection of full-length essays offers valuable insight into the life and legacy of this writer termed an American original.
The Bloom's Modern Critical Views series presents critical portraits of the writers that are most widely read and studied in high schools and colleges. Each volume opens with an introductory essay by Harold Bloom in which he offers his insights into the author's work and an editor's note that comments on the individual analyses that follow. Also included are bibliographic references, notes on the various contributors, and a useful chronology of the writer's life. Bloom's Modern Critical Views is a critical presentation of those men and women who, from ancient times to the present, have shaped the Western literary tradition.
