Jack London by Earle Labor( Book )

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

"The past two decades have seen an outpouring of new scholarship around the world on American writer Jack London (1876-1916), author of such eternal classics as The Call of the Wild (1903), now translated into over 80 languages; The Sea Wolf (1904); and White Fang (1905). Earle Labor and Jeanne Campbell Reesman significantly advance the rising tide of critical interest with this illuminating, beautifully written, and appropriately adventurous new update of Labor's 1974 study. Reading many overlooked yet masterful stories and revealing the deep ties among London's times and his life, beliefs, and writings, the authors apply new critical approaches to his narrative structure and style and move beyond the misconceptions that have limited appreciation of the great short story writer, novelist, journalist, adventurer, socialist, and undeterrable individualist."

Jack London, photographer by Jeanne Campbell Reesman( Book )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jack London (1876-1916) remains one of the most widely read American writers, known for his naturalist fiction, socialist novels and essays, journalism, and the many adventures that he shared with the world. London was also an accomplished photographer, producing nearly twelve thousand photographs during his lifetime. Jack London, Photographer, the first book devoted to London's photography, reveals a vital dimension of his artistry, barely known until now. London's subjects included such peoples as the ragged homeless of London's East End and the freezing refugees of the Russo-Japanese War. On assignment for the Hearst Syndicate, Collier's, and other magazines, London made photographs of San Francisco in ruins after the 1906 earthquake and fire and, during his voyage aboard the Snark, produced humane images of the South Sea islanders that contrasted dramatically with the period's stereotypical portraits of indigenous peoples. In 1914 he documented the U.S. invasion of Veracruz during the Mexican Revolution. Although some of the images were used in newspaper and magazine stories and in his books The People of the Abyss and The Cruise of the Snark, the majority have remained unpublished until prior to this volume. The volume's more than two hundred photographs were printed from the original negatives in the California State Parks collection and from the original photographs in albums at the Huntington Library. They are reproduced here as duotones from silver gelatin prints. The general and chapter introductions place London's photographs in the context of his writings and his times"--Page [2] of dust jacket
Rereading Jack London( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

At once criminal and savior, clown and creator, antagonist and mediator, the character of trickster has made frequent appearances in works by writers the world over.

This book offers thirteen interpretations of trickster in American writing, including essays on works by African America, Native America, Pacific Rim, and Latino writers, as well as an examination of trickster politics. This collection conveys the trickster's imprint on the modern world

Jack London's racial lives : a critical biography by Jeanne Campbell Reesman( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jack London (1876-1916), known for his naturalistic and mythic tales, remains among the most popular and influential American writers in the world. Jack London's Racial Lives offers the first full study of the enormously important issue of race in London's life and diverse works, whether set in the Klondike, Hawaii, or the South Seas or during the Russo-Japanese War, the Jack Johnson world heavyweight bouts, or the Mexican Revolution. Reesman explores his choices of genre by analyzing racial content and purpose and judges his literary artistry against a standard of racial tolerance. Although he promoted white superiority in novels and nonfiction, London sharply satirized racism and meaningfully portrayed racial others - most often as protagonists - in his short fiction." "Why the disparity? For London, racial and class identity were intertwined: his formation as an artist began with the mixed "heritage" of his family. His mother taught him racism, but he learned something different from his African American foster mother, Virginia Prentiss. Childhood poverty, shifting racial allegiances, and a "psychology of want" helped construct the many "houses" of race and identity he imagined. Reesman also examines London's socialism, his study of Darwin and Jung, and the illnesses he suffered in the South Seas." "With new readings of The Call of the Wild and Martin Eden, and many other works, such as the explosive Pacific stories, Reesman reveals that London employed many of the same literary tropes of race used by African American writers of his period: the slave narrative, double-consciousness, the tragic mulatto, and ethnic diaspora. Hawaii seemed to inspire his most memorable visions of a common humanity."--Jacket
No mentor but myself : Jack London on writers and writing by Jack London( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jack London, one of the most read and recognized figures in American literature, produced an immense body of work, including 22 novels, 200 short stories, memoirs, newspaper articles, book reviews, essays, and poems. A significant and revealing feature of London's literary life lies in his introspective observations on the craft of writing, brought together in this collection of essays, reviews, letters and autobiographical writings. London's public role as a daring, carefree man of action has obscured the shrewd, disciplined, and methodical writer whose practical reflections and mediations of his profession provide a vivid portrait of the literary industry in turn-of-the-century America
