Adventure

by Jack London

Aventura

by Jack London

Las novelas del escritor estadounidense Jack London, aventuras con héroes solitarios, atormentados y profundamente humanos, reflejan su propia vida y han alcanzado un merecido reconocimiento de público y crítica. Si en 1913 London podía jactarse de ser el escritor más famoso y mejor pagado, podría añadirse que, entre 1903 y 1920, fue asimismo el autor americano más leído fuera de Estados Unidos. Es evidente que Jack London gusta de los episodios dramáticos, de las escenas cuidadosamente preparadas y resueltas con la máxima tensión. Pero si sus historias cautivan al lector, si le obligan a leerlas con el alma suspendida de un hilo, no es sólo porque describan episodios únicos, momentos no corrientes, aventuras insólitas, sino a causa de la peculiar manera en que están contadas. Su estilo, frecuentemente poético en la descripción paisajística, se hace, llegado el momento, directo, enérgico y efectivo. London sabe cómo alcanzar el punto climático adecuado, llevarlo a una situación límite y conservar el suspense, dosificándolo hasta el instante final.

Klondike Tales

by Jack London

As a young man in the summer of 1897, Jack London joined the Klondike gold rush. From that seminal experience emerged these gripping, inimitable wilderness tales, which have endured as some of London's best and most defining work. With remarkable insight and unflinching realism, London describes the punishing adversity that awaited men in the brutal, frozen expanses of the Yukon, and the extreme tactics these adventurers and travelers adopted to survive. As Van Wyck Brooks observed, " One felt that the stories had been somehow lived- that they were not merely observed- that the author was not telling tales but telling his life. " This edition is unique to the Modern Library, featuring twenty-three carefully chosen stories from London's three collected Northland volumes and his later Klondike tales. It also includes two maps of the region, and notes on the text.

Su escritura posee un vigor primitivo que aún conmueve, un lirismo acorde con el esplendor de la Naturaleza intacta. Muchos de sus relatos, entre los que destaca su obra maestra, La llamada de lo salvaje (traducida como 'de la selva' y 'de la naturaleza' 1903), fue el comienzo de una saga de héroes que mostraban una nobleza inquebrantable frente a las fuerzas de la Naturaleza y la condición humana. Ha sido traducido a numerosas lenguas.
