Francesca Lia Block's Wolf - ... This empowered protagonists is able to enact vengeance over the aggressions thrust upon her by her mothers’ boyfriend, by essentially wounding, and most likely killing the Wolf. “Then I had the gun and I pulled the trigger.” (Block 40-45) Though it is not explicitly stated that she killed him, she metaphorically takes claim on ending his life.

The Power of The Sea-Wolf - The Power of The Sea-Wolf Jack London’s novel, The Sea-Wolf, has many different interpretations. The story can be read as a combination of the naturalistic novel and the sentimental romance, both very popular around the turn of the century. London also brings into play literary naturalism, in which human beings are characterized as just another species in nature, subject to all of Her cosmic forces. The Sea-Wolf fits almost perfectly the archetypal pattern of an initiation story. Depth and interest are added to The Sea-Wolf by successfully integrating these three elements -- the combination of two popular genres, literary naturalism, and the initiation story....   [tags: Sea-Wolf Essays] 983 words

Many times the character of Wolf Larsen is a more consistent articulator of the Darwinian position and seems to always be getting the upper hand argumentatively. However, it is due to a phenomenological outlook on the events presented within The Sea Wolf that the alternative becomes intelligible....   [tags: Sea Wolf]
