Jack London by Earle Labor( Book )

8 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 951 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While he produced a thousand words a day for 17 years, selling virtually everything he wrote, commanding top dollar from such magazines as Atlantic and Harper's, and producing over 50 books - on topics ranging from Klondike gold-hunting to Socialism, from prize-fighting to agrarianism - London's greatness lay in far more than his ability to produce for the marketplace. Instead, as Labor and Reesman convincingly illustrate, London's work departs sharply from the best-seller formulas of his age. He pioneered the apocalyptic novel and dystopian fiction; his People of the Abyss (1903) compares favorably with William Blake's treatises on England's poor; his indictment of the white man's South Seas excursions is as incisive as Herman Melville's; and his use of themes from Freud and Jung anticipated the new literature of the 1920s. Exploring such extraordinary works as Martin Eden (1909), London's autobiographical masterpiece; The Cruise of the Snark (1911), the compelling account of his sailing voyage halfway around the world; and The Star Rover (1915), his fantastic dramatization of astral projection, Labor and Reesman neatly lay to rest a second misconception: that London's creative energies declined during the last decade of his life."

Alfred Kazin has aptly remarked that "the greatest story Jack London ever wrote was the story he lived." Newsboy, factory "work beast," gang member, hobo, sailor, Klondike argonaut, socialist crusader, war correspondent, utopian farmer, and world-famous adventurer: London is the closest thing America has had to a literary folk hero. His writing itself is concerned with nothing less than the largest questions and the grandest themes: What does it mean to be a human being in the natural world? What debts do human beings owe each other - and to all their fellow creatures? This collection places London, at last, securely within the American literary pantheon. It includes the complete novel The Call of the Wild; such famous stories as "Love of Life," "To Build a Fire," and "All Gold Canyon"; journalism, political writings, literary criticism, and selected letters

A handbook of critical approaches to literature by Wilfred L Guerin( Book )

"Now in its fourth edition, A Handbook of Critical Approaches to Literature has become a standard introduction to the close reading of literature. It offers students and other readers a variety of ways to interpret a piece of literature, ranging from traditional approaches through the formalist, the psychological, the mythic and archetypal, and into such contemporary approaches as feminist criticism and cultural studies. Applying these diverse approaches to the same five works, the book shows students how various methods offer different insights, enriching their response to and understanding of the individual work. This fourth edition features a new chapter on cultural studies and the inclusion and interpretation of Alice Walker's singularly rich short story, "Everyday Use.""--Jacket

Jack London has long been recognized as one of the most colorful figures in American literature. He is America's most widely translated author (into more than 80 languages), and although his works have been neglected until recently by academic critics in the United States, he is finally winning recognition as a major figure in American literary history. The breadth and depth of new critical study of London's work in recent decades attest to his newfound respectability. London criticism has moved beyond the traditional concerns of realism and naturalism as well as beyond a timeworn biographical focus to engage such theoretical approaches as race, gender, class, post-structuralism, and new historicism. The range and intellectual energy of the essays collected here give the reader a new sense of London's richness and variety, especially his treatment of diverse cultures. Having in the past focused more on London's personal "world," we are now afforded an opportunity to look more closely at his art and the numerous worlds it uncovers
