Jack London (Modern Critical Views)












Known for his tales of adventure and coming of age, Jack London's fiction, including 'The Call of the Wild', 'White Fang', 'The Sea-Wolf', and 'Martin Eden', is hailed for its naturalistic explorations and for its confrontation of notions of heroism and courage. This offering from Bloom's Modern Critical Views presents a selection of critical essays about London and his enduring works. Along with an introduction from master scholar Harold Bloom, a bibliography, a chronology, and an index make this volume perfect for students studying this author.
