White Fang, Jack London s 1906 companion and thematic mirror story to his classic The Call of the Wild begins with an archetypal London setting, a scene of desperate survival in a harsh, cruel environment Following the growth of a hybrid wolf dog as he grows and fights and survives in the frozen north, White Fang embodies and demonstrates many of the common themes of London s work such as survival of the fittest, isolation from society, and a primitive naturalism In the spirit of Joseph Conrad and Algernon Blackwood, London subtly personifies the wild until it is as much a character as one who gets a line of dialogue Blackwood s novella The Wendigo is a close companion to White Fang in that the frozen, inhospitable and unforgiving northlands comes to add an antagonistic quality to the narrative In many ways White Fang,brutal and less dramatic than Call of the Wild, is thequintessential London novel, though my pick for best London book is still The Sea Wolf. . I think I am one of the few who did not have this book as required reading in school.White Fang chronicles the harsh realities of life When this book begins, two men and trying to bring back the body of a third using their dog sled team There has been a lack of food and night by night one of their dogs go missing Finally, they see the culprit a she wolf who is luring their dogs away Food is scarce, and she is part of a wolf pack trying to survive Soon the men are being hunted by the wolves and it becomes a battle to survive Besides She Wolf half dog half wolf , an older wolf called one eye is with the pack Eventually they mate, and White Fang becomes their surviving pup.Initially life is good for White Fang He is inquisitive and lets his instincts help him learn to explore and hunt But one day he and his Mother come across men Gods and their lives change Soon Mother and Pup are separated, and White Fang gets his introductions into the harsh realities of life He learns the pains of separation, the pains of beatings and the pains of not fitting in with the other dogs and wolves White Fang is sold and has an evensadistic owner who turns him into a fighter Eventually White Fang is saved and begins a new life where he eventually knows kindness and trust He becomes part of a family again.So now that I have told you the plot of the entire book, I will tell you that I really enjoyed this story I liked how the story is mainly told through White Fang s POV It gives the reader a great look at White Fang s impulses, instincts, personality, fears and thoughts Well written and with a sweet ending London captured the environment and elements brilliantly I love when I read a book and feel as if I am right there during the action I m glad that I selected to read this as part of a group read.Seeof my reviews at www.openbookpost.com White Fang, Jack London White Fang is a novel by American author Jack London 1876 1916 and the name of the book s eponymous character, a wild wolfdog First serialized in Outing magazine, it was published in 1906 The story takes place in Yukon Territory and the Northwest Territories, Canada, during the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush and details White Fang s journey to domestication It is a companion novel and a thematic mirror to London s best known work, The Call of the Wild, which is about a kidnapped, domesticated dog embracing his wild ancestry to survive and thrive in the wild Much of White Fang is written from the viewpoint of the titular canine character, enabling London to explore how animals view their world and how they view humans White Fang examines the violent world of wild animals and the equally violent world of humans The book also explores complex themes including morality and redemption 1974 1332 221 1335 223 1340 207 1343 1354 258 1369 275 256 1364 206 1388 159 9789642621569 1388 159 9789642646340 1393 159 9786009184811 1364 1370 111 1374 128 1386 302 9789645361981 1394 1389 112 9789642621743 1392 226 9789648329438 1394 64 9786006753881 Ovo je jedna od retkih knjiga za koju je 5 nedovoljno da opi e koliko je pri a savr ena. I was reminded of Diana, the Huntress with her lop eared hounds driving her chariot and her nymphs as her hunting companions when I read this book And it is as that Goddess that I accompanied the wolf White Fang the only survivor out of a litter of five puppies , on his incredible journey through life I was the hidden onlooker basking in all the trials and tribulations that overcame him, be it through periods of famine, extreme brutality by human beings, his necessity and desire to hunt and to kill Due to all of this he was hated both by man and dog So having no kindness in his life how could he possibly ever like a person, never mind love him.This isn t your ordinary wolf with a touch of dog thrown in for good measure, but a very intelligent creature who soon realizes from the time of being a puppy that it s a question of survival living in this harsh Canadian climate and where you have the choice of being the one who eats or ends up being eaten it is indeed survival of the fittest He soon finds out that he doesn t actually have a choice in the way that he can lead his life He realizes the power of men, the gods as he calls them, and being faced with famine, he quickly realizes what direction his life has to take.Incredible dogs are met such as Lip lip, Collie, Dick the hound, White Fang s mother, Kiche, the reddish furred wolf dog who had violent inclinations, and One Eye the successful rival out of three fighting to be the object of her attention and desire, and ultimately the father of White Fang The battle began fairly, but it did not end fairly There was no telling what the outcome would have been, for the third wolf joined the elder and together, old leader and young leader, they attacked the ambitious three year old and proceeded to destroy him He was beset on either side by the merciless fangs of his erstwhile comrades Forgotten were the days they had hunted together, the game they had pulled down, the famine they had suffered That business was a thing of the past The business of love was at hand even a sterner and crueler business than that of food gettingAnd in the meantime, the she wolf, the cause of it all, sat down contentedly on her haunches and watched She was even pleased This was her day and it came not often when manes bristled, and fang smote fang or ripped and tore the yielding flesh, all for the possession of her.I really loved White Fang, despite whatever he got up to because you as the reader were allowed to enter into his reasoning mind That was so clever of the author and I often had tears to my eyes in parts and even a lump in my throat One of those occasions showed White Fang, barking for the first time.And what an incredible mix of individuals who blend in so well within the fabric of this book The evil ones such as the Indian Gray Beaver, and Beauty Smith, who trained dogs to kill in blood sports versus the good individuals such as Judge Scott, Weedon Scott and his wife Alice and Matt, the dog musher I defy anyone who will not be overwhelmed with the brilliance of this book by London Once I had picked this book up, I could only quickly eat, and couldn t put it down until I had finished it.Jack London through his magnificent descriptions has embraced life in the northlands during the Yukon Gold rush in the 1890 s and shown such a graphic insight of the savagery of life then, with human beings, especially their violence towards their sled dogs Nevertheless, he counters this by also demonstrating kindness and loyalty But this author s incredible imagination keeps the reader hanging on with enthusiasm regardless of what happens There was a sensational section with a man bent on revenge, to name but one of the different wonderful sections of this book and in several other cases, the men and women who came to realize the worth of White Fang.In conclusion, this is one of those books that has to be read As for future reading, I can see myself re reading it many times in the future as this is an absolutely wonderful read and there s nothingto be said |KINDLE ♁ White Fang ♀ White Fang Is Part Dog And Part Wolf, And The Lone Survivor Of His Family In His Lonely World, He Soon Learns To Follow The Harsh Law Of The North Kill Or Be Killed But Nothing In White Fang S Life Can Prepare Him For The Cruel Owner Who Turns Him Into A Vicious Killer Will White Fang Ever Know The Kindness Of A Gentle Master My second book by Jack London As a kid, I watched Disney s movie with Ethan Hawke and loved every second of it The majesty of the nature scenes, the thrilling albeit tragic life of the wolf the German title of the story is Wolf s Blood Since I keep working my way through a wide range of classics, Jack London was not to be missed and his books were really perfect for winter incidentally, the weather got really icy every time I picked one of them up.We follow a she wolf as she chooses a mate and has a litter One of the pups is the titular White Fang Through his eyes we experience the life among his siblings, famine, encounters first with Natives and then with white humans, dog fights, pain and betrayal but also love and even humour.Despite the age of London s stories, they address topics that are still relevant today such as human greed, falsehood, friendship andThe author s musings regarding human nature incorporated in this adventure were poignant and mostly accurate I disagree about Beauty Smith not being culpable.I seriously hated most humans here lol Naturally, people thought differently about animals then compared to now, but even then one should have valued life, whether furry or not I can consider the times a story takes place in but animal cruelty is wrong no matter what century.Thus, despite Grey Beaver already having been horrible, Beauty Smith was the worst because he pollutes the already tarnished White Fang To a certain degree, that made them alike both had bad pasts full of negative experiences The noteable difference, showing that the author also thinks animals are the better people, is how view spoiler White Fang manages to turn around and lead a good life thanks to his benevolent master in the end hide spoiler I can still remember the day I received the hardcover edition of this novel as a christmas present by my grandmother four or five years ago At a time when I was still recuperating from the classics thrown at us in school with the pure result of me feeling disgusted by everything which has been publishedthan one hundred years ago, I decided White Fang to be a piece of literature I d better not pick up And so it rested on my book shelf forthan three years before I brought myself to open it again The first of altogether five parts turned out to be arduous to read, since I expected an animal s viewpoint, but read a story about two men trying to survive in Canada s wilderness I finally stopped reading at page forty or so and put it back on my shelves.Then, one year ago, I returned to White Fang , telling myself continuously it couldn t be that bad, and exactly at that point where Part Two began, I fell in love with this book White Fang s story is told in such a magnificient way, you can t help yourself but root for his wolf, hope for his survival, suffer with him through everything he has to endure Jack London s novel became one of the first classics I enjoyed, and although some time still had to pass before I would turn my attention towards other classics, it ultimately broke the ice between me and classics, a long lasting antipathy fabricated by my teacher s abilities to kill any interest in reading all those great books out there.Highly recommended Although I did enjoy
