The Sea Wolf – Jack London
Summary: The Sea Wolf – Jack London
“Wolf – tis what he is. He’s not blackhearted like some men. ‘Tis no heart he has at all. Wolf. Just Wolf, tis what he is. D’ye wonder he’s well named?”
The Sea-Wolf is a 1904 psychological adventure novel by American writer Jack London. The book’s protagonist, Humphrey van Weyden, is a literary critic who is a survivor of an ocean collision and who comes under the dominance of Wolf Larsen, the powerful and amoral sea captain who rescues him.
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.”
