Book Excerpt: 
. . .r, and her eyes glowed as they glanced over the graceful massiveness of the man.  But Bill did not see that.  He was too busy with the trunk.

The next time he saw Mary Condon was during the Laundry Strike.  The Laundry Workers, but recently organized, were green at the business, and had petitioned Mary Condon to engineer the strike.  Freddie Drummond had had an inkling of what was coming, and had sent Bill Totts to join the union and investigate.  Bill’s job was in the wash-room, and the men had been called out first, that morning, in order to stiffen the courage of the girls; and Bill chanced to be near the door to the mangle-room when Mary Condon started to enter.  The superintendent, who was both large and stout, barred her way.  He wasn’t going to have his girls called out, and he’d teach her a lesson to mind her own business.  And as Mary tried to squeeze past him he thrust her back with a fat hand on her shoulder.&n. . . Read More

I'm not particularly a huge fan of Jack London and this anthropological fable seems somewhat naive at times, but at the same time his writing feels raw and truthful. And ultimately this is a story all about 'message' and his is a relevant one.

This particular edition has some truly outstanding ar...more

Acquistato in una mostra della microeditoria, questo volume fa parte di una collana di scritti "anomali" di autori famosi. "L'invasione della Cina", infatti, è una raccolta di racconti di fantascienza e fantapolitica di Jack London, conosciutissimo per testi di ben altro genere. Stupisce la fresc...more

'The Heathen' is one of the greatest stories of friendship that I've ever read. The bond shared by the two characters was as powerful as the storm that prompted their friendship. I'm pretty sure this is my favorite short story. It brings my head closer to my heart, and I always feel better when t...more

Tuve que leer este cuento de London para la facultad y sinceramente me maravilló, la reflexión que deja sobre el final es sencillamente espléndida. Asimismo, a pesar de estar escrito a comienzos del siglo XX, considero que tiene y seguirá teniendo mucha actualidad y por ello, lo recomiendo totalm...more

Prosa scorrevole, ma raramente appassionante o fonte di ispirazione. Personaggi abbozzati. Fortemente politico, non in modo sottile, ma apprezzabile la forza delle immagini proposte. A tratti, più che racconti sembrano parabole

"Éramos una gente muy necia. No conocíamos el
secreto de la fuerza".

London desgrana el auge del capitalismo tocando todos los temas posibles: origen de la riqueza en el trabajo, plusvalía, violencia justificada, alienación de los trabajadores... en definitiva, todos aquellos problemas que seguimos...more

Capitalismo para principiantes. No es Rebelión en la Granja pero tampoco está mal esta fábula.

That was a powerful story. I'm sure it was a parable about the events of the day, back in 1911, but it's equally appropriate for right now. I guess that kind of quality writing is what get labelled "timeless" — when a story can still work its magic literally a century after it was written.
It's re...more

Ao começar pela diagramação impecável, 'A Força dos Fortes', coletânea de contos de Jack London até então inéditos no país é uma jornada pelas obras e vida do escritor.

O livro começa com 'O Pagão', um conto sobre uma amizade criada em alto mar após um naufrágio seguido por 'A Força dos Fortes'. D...more

La fuerza de los fuertes propone al lector una vuelta a los ancestros en busca de los motivos que propiciaron la corrupción y la tiranía en los primeros días de las comunidades. Allí se sitúa Barba-Larga, un anciano que alberga en sus palabras la experiencia y el conocimiento necesarios para el a...more
