ebook ¶ ê Jack London

White Fang is part dog and part wolf and the lone survivor of his family In his lonely world he soon learns White Fang Jack London’s 1906 companion and thematic mirror story to his classic The Call of the Wild begins with an archetypal London setting a scene of desperate survival in a harsh cruel environment Following the growth of a hybrid wolf dog as he grows and fights and survives in the frozen north White Fang embodies and demonstrates many of the common themes of London’s work such as survival of the fittest isolation from society and a primitive naturalism In the spirit of Joseph Conrad and Algernon Blackwood London subtly personifies “the wild” until it is as much a character as one who gets a line of dialogue Blackwood’s novella The Wendigo is a close companion to White Fang in that the frozen inhospitable and unforgiving northlands comes to add an antagonistic uality to the narrative In many ways White Fang brutal and less dramatic than Call of the Wild is the uintessential London novel though my pick for best London book is still The Sea Wolf
