El mundo a traves de los ojos de un perro. La primera novela de Jack London, El Llamado de la Selva es una de esas obras unicas, en donde una serie de aventuras durante la fiebre del oro se ven a traves de la vision de un perro, de fidelidad unica, pero en el cual el llamado atavico de sus antepasados acaba triunfando. London estaba convencido de que la vuelta a la naturaleza, que en forma tan poderosa es en ultimas el tema de la novela, es el destino final de todo ser vivo. Es una obra llena de vida y de interes que no declina y por eso, es considerada basica dentro de la produccion de su autor. Es interesante ademas por que rompe con una cantidad de convenciones de la narrativa, entre ellas la de que no existe ningun romanticismo, sino que todo es descrito en forma impersonal.

The Call of the Wild is one of those unique works, where a series of adventures during the gold rush is seen trough the eyes of a dog. It is a work full of life and interest that does not fade.

    " London's "The Call of the Wild" is a beautiful and emotional depiction of the life of a dog born and raised in a loving environment. He is betrayed and has to cope with life in the wild. "

    " Really enjoyed reading about Buck and his life. It's good to go back and read some classics especially when your teacher didn't assign them!! "

    " A wonderful, quick read. I loved that it was written from the perspective of the dog, and while London clearly has an idealistic view of nature, I enjoyed it thoroughly. In fact, I enjoyed it because he painted nature in such a vibrant, idealistic way. "

About the Author
Author Jack London

Jack London (1876–1916) was an American author, journalist, and social activist. Before making a living at his writing, he spent time as an oyster pirate, a sailor, a cannery worker, a gold miner, and a journalist. He was a pioneer in the then-burgeoning world of commercial magazine fiction and was one of the first fiction writers to obtain worldwide celebrity and a large fortune from his fiction writing. He is best known for his novels The Call of the Wild and White Fang, both set during the Klondike gold rush, as well as the short stories “To Build a Fire,” “An Odyssey of the North,” and “Love of Life.”  He also wrote of the South Pacific in such stories as “The Pearls of Parlay” and “The Heathen.” He was a passionate advocate of unionization, socialism, and the rights of workers and wrote several powerful works dealing with these topics, including The Iron Heel, The People of the Abyss, and The War of the Classes.
