Jack London

Jack London was an American novelist, journalist, social activist, and short-story writer whose works deal romantically with elemental struggles for survival. At his peak, he was the highest-paid and the most popular of all living writers. Because of early financial difficulties, he was a largely self-educated past grammar school.

London drew heavily on his life experiences in his writing. Jack London spent time in the Klondike during the Gold Rush and at various times was an oyster pirate, a seaman, a sealer, and a hobo. His first work was published in 1898. From there he went on to write such American classics as Call of the Wild, Sea Wolf, and White Fang.
years of life: 12 January 1876 22 November 1916

Quotes

the reciterhas quoted2 years ago
You wanted to create beauty, but how could you when you knew nothing about the nature of beauty? You wanted to write about life when you knew nothing of the essential characteristics of life. You wanted to write about the world and the scheme of existence when the world was a Chinese puzzle to you and all that you could have written would have been about what you did not know of the scheme of existence.
Todotraumas Kunhas quoted2 years ago
Either kill for survival or be killed and eaten yourself
Todotraumas Kunhas quoted2 years ago
eternity laughing at the futility of life and the effort of life.

la eternidad riéndose de la inutilidad de la vida y el esfuerzo de la vida.
