The Sea-Wolf is a psychological adventure novel by American novelist Jack London. The book’s protagonist, Humphrey van Weyden, is a literary critic who is a survivor of an ocean collision and who comes under the dominance of Wolf Larsen, the powerful and amoral sea captain who rescues him. A sailing adventure, a struggle for survival, the waxing and waning of dominance, personal discovery and growth along with a love story are seamlessly wrapped together and prove that The Sea-Wolf, is a classic worthy of a revisit or an introduction to Jack London’s great writing. John Griffith “Jack” London (January 12, 1876 – November 22, 1916) was an American author, journalist, and social activist. He was a passionate advocate of unionization, socialism, and the rights of workers.
