JACK LONDON

Classic Literature. Author Biography

Jack London (1876 – 1916)

classic literature by Jack London, slsinore, jerrymoon, barleycorn, sea wolfJack London was born in San Francisco and largely educated himself through prolific reading at the public library. By the time he was thirteen, Jack was working long arduous hours at Hickmott’s Cannery. Determined to leave behind such labour, he because an oyster pirate before becoming a more legitimate Californian Fish Patrol man. He was later to experience life as a hobo and a sailor.

In 1897, he left with his brother-in-law to join the Gold Rush at Klondike, but developed scurvy and lost some of his teeth. His experiences here inspired his future novels.

After much hardship, a new cheaper means of mass-printing, meant Jack London was able to get some of his works published and sold to magazines. He married in 1900 to a friend, Bess Maddern, and they had their first child a year later, followed by a second the subsequent year. By 1903 he had left Bess, but on relatively good terms.

After remarrying Jack London bought a large ranch in California in 1910. His love for his ranch and contentment led to a lacklustre response to his new writing.

Jack London died in 1916 under controversial circumstances, possibly from a deliberate or accidental overdose of morphine.
