The Sea-Wolf (Modern Library Classics) by Jack London 0679783377 9780679783374
Stock Image - Actual Cover May Vary


A thrilling epic of a sea voyage and a complex novel of ideas, The Sea-Wolf is a standard-bearer of its genre. It is the vivid story of a gentleman scholar, Humphrey Van Weyden, who is rescued by a seal-hunting schooner after a ferryboat accident in San Francisco Bay. London uses Van Weydens ordeal at the hands of a schooners devious crew to explore powerful themes of ambition, courage, and the innate will to survive. The Sea-Wolf also introduces Jack Londons most memorable, fully realized character, Wolf Larsen, the schooners brutal captain, who ruthlessly crushes anyone standing in his way. As Gary Kinder states in his Introduction, Wolf Larsen is one of the most carefully carved characters in American literature....London, himself, seems as fascinated as the reader with his own creation.
