THE NOVELS OF JACK LONDON: A Reappraisal.
Edition: First printing.
Madison, WI: University of Wisconsin Press, (1983.) dj. Hardcover first edition - In this, the first serious study of London's novels - which have often been dismissed at the product of a talented hack and a literary barbarian - Watson examines their 'sources, their unifying themes, and their suggestion of real literary development.' Focusing on nine of the best novels -including 'Call of the Wild', 'The Iron Heel,' 'Martin Eden,' and others - he draws on original research to demonstrate London's literary dependence on personal experiences.
