The Call of the Wild (New Riverside Editions) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Originally published in 1903, The Call of the Wild is London's best-known work. Marking the 100th anniversary of the novel, this New Riverside Edition is well timed to place London's work in a new and broader historical context. In addition, the volume will show how the critical reception of the work has changed over time. Due to a resurgence of interest in the study of Jack London during the past decade, a wealth of new material is available to further illuminate The Call of the Wild. Supplementary materials in this volume include other London fiction that predated his writing of this novel, letters he wrote about his intentions in writing it, early reviews of the work, and critical essays from past and present.

About the Author

Paul Lauter is the Smith Professor of Literature at Trinity College. He has served as president of the American Studies Association and is a major figure in the revision of the American literary canon.
