Jack London by Earle Labor( Book )
6 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,033 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."
The portable Jack London by Jack London( Book )
5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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

Jack London an American life by Earle Labor( Recording )
5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Jack London was born a working class, fatherless Californian in 1876. In his youth, he was a boundlessly energetic adventurer on the bustling West Coast-- an oyster pirate, a hobo, a sailor, and a prospector by turns. He spent his brief life rapidly accumulating the experiences that would inform his acclaimed bestselling books The Call of the Wild, White Fang, and The Sea-Wolf. The bare outlines of his story suggest a classic rags-to-riches tale, but London the man was plagued by contradictions. He chronicled nature at its most savage but wept helplessly at the deaths of his favorite animals. At his peak the highest paid writer in the United States, he was nevertheless forced to work under constant pressure for money. An irrepressibly optimistic crusader for social justice and a lover of humanity, he was also subject to spells of bitter invective, especially as his health declined. Branded by shortsighted critics as little more than a hack who produced a couple of memorable dog stories, he left behind a voluminous literary legacy, much of it ripe for rediscovery. In Jack London: An American Life, the noted Jack London scholar Earle Labor explores the brilliant and complicated novelist lost behind the myth-- at once a hard-living globe-trotter and a man alive with ideas whose passion for seeking new worlds to explore never waned until the day he died. Returning London to his proper place in the American pantheon, Labor resurrects a major American novelist in his full fire and glory" --

A handbook of critical approaches to literature by Wilfred L Guerin( Book )
3 editions published between 1966 and 2005 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"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
