THE NOVEL

posted by .

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

A. Nietzsche's ideas.
B. "might makes right."

C. instincts as ancient memories.

D. the theory of evolution.

  • THE NOVEL -

    I would intrepret B not as Might makes right, but as the powerful are right, and survive.

  • THE NOVEL -

    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.
