 About the Book 

The Sea-Wolf, a psychological adventure novel by American novelistJack Londonabout a literary critic, survivor of an ocean collision, who comes under the dominance of Wolf Larsen, the powerful and amoral sea captain who rescues him. Its first printing was immediately sold out before publication on the strength of Londons previousThe Call of the Wild. Ambrose Biercewrote, The great thing-and it is among the greatest of things-is that tremendous creation, Wolf Larsen... the hewing out and setting up of such a figure is enough for a man to do in one lifetime... The love element, with its absurd suppressions, and impossible proprieties, is awful.
