A Student's Guide to Jack London

Series: Understanding Literature

By Stephanie Buckwalter

Jack London was one of the most popular and important American writers of the early twentieth century. London drew upon the breadth of his own amazing, real-life experiences to capture the imagination of the reading public like few other writers ever had before. In A STUDENT’S GUIDE TO JACK LONDON, the career of this literary giant is examined, offering accessible insight for readers. Each of his works is placed in historical and biographical context, with special emphasis placed on curriculum-related works. These include THE CALL OF THE WILD, WHITE FANG, and several other autobiographical works and short stories.

Booklist, September 1, 2007

". . . a very helpful tool to students who are studying great pieces of literature . . . Each book is packed with all kinds of relevant information about the person being written about and the various works of the person . . . Each guide is quite comprehensive and would be appropriate for advanced middle school students or high school students."

Catholic Library World, September 2008

". . . the books will provide a solid background for readers seeking a deeper understanding of literary classics."

The Horn Book Guide, Fall 2007

"An excellent addition to literature collections especially where literary criticism is a part of the language arts curriculum . . . Concise, easy to understand information on the author’s lifestyle and its impact on his writing as well as criticism on at least 5 titles and general criticism on other writing provide the student researcher with a wealth of information for reports."
