MESSAGE OR LESSON
Jack London's classic story from 1903 about Buck, a dog kidnapped from his home in California and taken to the Yukon where he is mistreated until a prospector discovers him and relates to his situation. Although the two are bonded, Buck yearns to run free with the wild dogs in the wilderness.
The message is not so much that the primitive life is better as that all of us, humans and animals, have both characteristics within ourselves, and that we are capable of being both civilized and wild. . The ultimate moral of the story may be that all of us—people and animals—must deal with the reality of both good and evil as they exist in the world.
I think that this book is considered classic.The text is written through an animal's perspective and presents opportunities for discussion on numerous themes. This book can be challenging for sensitive people (including me) as there is animal cruelty and violence, which is detailed and specific at times.Overall, the text is complex with numerous themes and an elaborate writing style.
