After the death of Curly in The Call of the Wild, Buck concludes that no fair play exists in his world and that he will never go down in a fight. The theme illustrated here is apparently derived from London's interpretation of

B. "might makes right."

C. instincts as ancient memories.

D. the theory of evolution.

    London has several allegorical themes in this work, the joy of work, the virtue of humanity, the need for companionship, power, loyalty, power of instinct, and survival of the fittest. I assume you could defend these themes of London's with examples.
