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.

The Cruise of the Snark

by Jack London Robert Madison

Inspired by the examples of his heroes Herman Melville, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Joshua Slocum, Jack London determined to sail around the world. In April 1907 he sailed from San Francisco in the forty-five-foot ketch Snark, with his wife, Charmian, a skeleton crew, and his writing to keep him company. Beset by seasickness and tropical disease, London wrote incessantly--not only his major autobiographical novel Martin Eden and numerous short stories, but also a series of sketches recording the voyage itself. These entertaining pieces, collected together into the book he called The Cruise of the Snark, reveal London's indefatigable spirit and love of adventure at sea and among the Pacific islands. Includes introduction and notes, as well as London's delightful sea pieces "That Dead Men Rise Up Never" and "The Joy of Small-Boat Sailing".
