一个悲剧如何变成一个喜剧?

《马普希的房子》情节生动,揭露了白人殖民者肆无忌惮地欺凌百姓。

杰克·伦敦,原名为约翰·格利菲斯·伦敦(John Griffith London),美国著名的现实主义作家。他一生共创作了约85卷作品,其中最为著名的有《野性的呼唤》、《海狼》、《白牙》、《马丁·伊登》和一系列优秀短篇小说《热爱生命》、《老头子同盟》、《北方的奥德赛》、《马普希的房子》、《沉寂的雪原》等。

John Griffith "Jack" London (born John Griffith Chaney, January 12, 1876—November 22, 1916) was an American author, journalist, and social activist. He was a pioneer in the then-burgeoning world of commercial magazine fiction and was one of the first fiction writers to obtain worldwide celebrity and a large fortune from his fiction alone. He is best remembered as the author of The Call of the Wild and White Fang, both set in the Klondike Gold Rush, as well as the short stories To Build a Fire, An Odyssey of the North, and Love of Life. He also wrote of the South Pacific in such stories as The Pearls of Parlay and The Heathen, and of the San Francisco Bay area in The Sea Wolf .

他有一种感觉,好像他能够把手伸到风中,把它撕成一块一块的,就好像从死去的鹿身上扯肉一样;他觉得自己好像能够抓住风,能够像攀岩一样攀住它。

He had a feeling that he could reach into it and tear it out in chunks as one might do with the meat in the carcass of a steer; that he could seize hold of the wind and hang on to it as a man might hang on to the face of a cliff.

读罢他的作品,随之而来的是惊心动魄的思索,作者笔锋粗放,读了他的作品,我们能够感受热爱生命的真谛!他能让文字燃烧生命烈火。他就是杰克·伦敦。在坚毅中保持宽容,在宽容中保持坚毅是他特有的人生哲学观念,在小说中得到了充分的体现。

我所看到的,是征服的迷人力量,是血色冒险及黄金潮的迷人力量。……生命既勇敢又狂野,而我正经历着我阅读了无数遍的冒险生活。——杰克·伦敦

评论家们认为,这位擅长“描写人类原始本能”的年轻小说家可以跟爱伦·坡、吉卜林以及麦尔维尔相提并论。

伦敦评论专家瑞斯曼认为伦敦是“美国文学代表人物之一”。

一九零一年七月出版的《民族》评论道:“坡以来本国出现的最有力的短篇小说家,一个西方出现的新吉卜林。……第一等讲故事的人……天生的小说家……富有现实性,锐利的观察……利落,干净,生气勃勃。”

Western writer and historian Dale L. Walker writes:

London's true métier was the short story ... London's true genius lay in the short form, 7,501 words and under, where the flood of images in his teeming brain and the innate power of his narrative gift were at once constrained and freed. His stories that run longer than the magic 7,500 generally—but certainly not always—could have benefited from self-editing.

  • 竟是这样的结局

    一个珍贵的珍珠从一个贫苦的岛民手里被夺走,但在发生了一系列事情之后,它竟出人意料地回到了主人的手里。这是杰克•伦敦非常罕见的有人情,而不单纯对人生和命运感到绝望的时候。不管是飓风还是老妇人的抗争,都很艰苦卓绝,有一种沉重的感觉,而作者那种描写方式,让你觉得绝望。但最后,竟然是剥削者们死去,而底层的人赢得胜利的戏谑结……展开↓
