Jack London / Life & Works : It has often been suggested that art is an imitation of life. While such is certainly true, this essay asserts that the reverse is also true, as in the life and career of American author Jack London. In this 5-page report, the writer examines the adventurous life of the nomadic London and the impact of his life and personal philosophy upon his work. The first section examines London’s humble origins and how they formed the basis for his Social Darwinism and Marxist leanings. Next, London’s family life is chronicled, with his first marriage being for ‘breeding,’ and the second for love and companionship. The writings of Jack London are explored in the third section, and how they reflected his own life in fiction, as inspiration for Buck, the canine hero of The Call of the Wild, the unnamed man freezing to death in "To Build a Fire," and the introspective and autobiographical John Barleycorn. This report concludes that although Jack London’s life was not long in terms of years, it was rich in terms of human experience and artistry, and this life will live on as long as the art is appreciated.
