The Sea-Wolf by Jack London (ebook)

 

Description

Release Special Price

The Sea-Wolf is a novel written in 1904 by American author Jack

London. An immediate bestseller, the first printing of forty thousand

copies was sold out before publication. Of it, Ambrose Bierce wrote

"The great thing—and it is among the greatest of things—is that

tremendous creation, Wolf Larsen... the hewing out and setting up of

such a figure is enough for a man to do in one lifetime."

Plot Summary:

Like The Call of the Wild, The Sea Wolf tells the story of a soft,

domesticated protagonist, in this novel's case an intellectual man

named Humphrey van Weyden, forced to become tough and self-reliant by

exposure to cruelty and brutality. The story starts with him onboard a

San Francisco ferry, called Martinez, which collides with another ship

in the fog and sinks. He is set adrift in the sea, eventually being

picked up ("rescued" is not the right word) by Wolf Larsen. Larsen is

the captain of the seal-hunting schooner Ghost. Brutal and cynical,

yet also highly intelligent and intellectual (though highly biased in

his opinions as he was self-taught), he rules over his ship and

terrorizes the crew with the aid of his exceptionally great physical

strength. Van Weyden adequately describes him as an individualist, a

hedonist, and a materialist. As Larsen does not believe in the

immortality of the soul, he finds no meaning in his life save survival

and pleasure and has come to despise all human life and deny its

value. Being interested in someone capable of intellectual disputes,

he somewhat takes care of "Hump" while forcing him to become a cabin

boy, do menial work, and learn to fight to protect himself from a

brutal crew.
