In his tales of the South Seas, Jack London often employs dark humor and grim irony in order to illuminate the clash of cultures. In “The Whale Tooth,” a white man becomes the victim of his own impulse to proselytize the benighted “heathen” on Melanesia.

This story is a prime example of London’s ability to take real characters and real events and mold them into a dark, grim satire.

    " I <3 Wolf Larsen. THAT is a man. "

    " Ho-ho the descriptions of how hot Captain Larsen is are right up my alley...the philosophical discussions and whatnot were also pretty interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by David | 5/12/2011

    " I am always drawn to books that are considered Classics.

    It was a good read, though I wish the tension between Wolf and Hump would have played out more thoroughly and completely via a show down of wits, arguements wherein one cedes to the others opinion.

    Still a good read. "

    " Tuned out almost immediately. I got through a chapter, but just barely. "
