Common Reader: The Sea-Wolf

Yasmina.Pamir_.jpg

A mythical adventure story exploring primeval masculinity and man against the elements. For this week’s Common Reader, Christian takes us through Jack London’s The Sea-Wolf (1904), as a young literary academic takes to the high seas. Hosts Andrew and Daisy discuss the trend away from physical adventure to the psychological, and the idea that adventure novels were today’s equivalent to blockbuster films.
