“The Sea Wolf” by Jack London
“The Sea Wolf” is an epic saga of man’s courage and unbreakable will to survive and to overwhelm the obstacles in life. Humphrey Van Weyden is a 35 years old scholar, with weak physical appearance but strong mind. His story begins abroad a ferryboat from San Francisco. Upon entering the Bay, thick fog falls down and due to the low visibility the ferry collides with another ship and sinks. Humphrey manages to survive and drifts away, helpless and left at the mercy of the ocean. He is found and saved from certain death by the cruel and vicious captain Wolf Larsen. Powerful and despotic both mentally and physically, Wolf is interested in Humphrey’s intellect and forces him to stay on the seal-hunting ship. Making him a cabin boy and treating him no better than the rest of the crew, Humphrey is forced to live the harsh and challenging life of the sailor man. In the crushing conditions of this spartan existence, his mind and body will be forged by the suffering and the struggle for survival.
