Riassunto: Jack London is best known for his stories about Alaska, the Yukon and the great Klondike Gold Rush. Most if not all of us have read The Call of the Wild and White Fang in grade school. The Northern Tales, however, made up only a part of Jack London's work.
The Complete Short Stories of Jack London contains all of the author's stories that we could discover -- some 210 stories. The collection includes his stories of the North ("To Build a Fire," "The Race for Number Three," "Keesh, Son of Keesh," others), his tales of the Southern Seas ("Koloau the Leper," "The Water Baby," "The Terrible Solomons"), social and science fiction ("The Red One," "The Unparalleled Invasion," "Goliah"). Believe it or not, Jack London also turned out several romantic stories for women's magazines ("A Dream Image," "The Grilling of Loren Ellery"), ghost and horror stories ("Planchette", "The Eternity of Forms," "A Thousand Deaths"), and even historical fiction ("In the Time of Prince Charley").
Many literary critics consider him to have been a master of the short story, rather than a novelist, and it is difficult not to agree after perusing this collection. The 210 stories contained within will provide many days of reading pleasure.
This material was NOT merely scanned from an ink-and-paper book, like many Kindle e-books are. All e-books offered by Di Lernia Publishers are hand-edited and checked for spelling and punctuation errors.
Sinossi: Jack London's remarkable success as a short-story writer came at a critical moment in American literary history. The vacuum created by the deaths of Stephen Crane and Frank Norris, the suppression of Theodore Dreiser, the disaffection of Henry James, and the decline into old age of Mark Twain and William Dean Howells had been filled by a host of long-forgotten popular hacks. London's emergence came as a tremendous shock. 'Like Stanford's edition of Jack London's letters, this edition of his short stories will revolutionize not only London studies but cultural studies of all kinds that are focused on the Progressive Era in American history. Finally, this authoritative, carefully edited collection includes an extensive introduction that indicates a breadth and depth of scholarship that compels as much admiration as it does interest.'
