The Perfect Blend of Legendary Plot and Realistic Details —Jack London's Love of Life

Juan Jia
Abstract—Love of life is one of the representative works of American realist writer Jack London, who uses detailed descriptions of psychological and ideological activities to outline a breathtaking picture feeling,e.g. in the harsh Canadian tundra, the hungry, the wounded beat the limits of their lives and survive in extreme conditions, so that readers can have an immersive reading experience. In this 10,000 - word novel, London put the protagonist into an extremely difficult and menacing living environment that is almost detached from reality as well as very detailed and realistic details to present a dramatic and undulating journey of survival to readers by the third person narrative point of view.This paper will dig into the unique charm of Jack London's artistic creation from two perspectives: plot development and detail characterization.

Index Terms—Detail characterization, Jack London, love of life, plot.
