Natural selection, survival of the fittest

The first work of Jack London I read is Love of Life, which is an article of our junior high school textbook. It is about the story how Bill survived at his journey in

wilderness. In this journey, he had to face the threaten of hunger and an ugly wolf. In order to preserving his life, the only way was to learn to adapt to the surrounding enviornment and struggle with nature.

It was because of this article that I was fond of Jack London ’s writing style. Then I had read his other novels, such as A Piece of Steak and The Strength of The Strong, their same topic is only the most strong person can live a happy life in the fierce competitions.

The Call of The Wild is not an exception.

Buck, a gigantic southern dog once lived in rich and

comfortable home, was stolen and forced to learn to survive as an Alaskan sled dog with the Alaskan gold rush. Life in the North was not easy, as a meek domestic dog, Buck had

never experience the cruelty of the life and dead struggle, nor had he learnt the guile and cheating. But in the wild north, club is the reign of primitive law, a man with a club was a lawgiver, if he wanted to survive, he had to try his best to fit to jungle competition environment.

Everything needs to needed to learn, everything needed to fit. No one can help him, the person he could count on was just himself. To our pleasure, Buck learnt those lessons rapidly after cruel domesticated courses. Moreover, he even became the leader of the wild wolves of the north.

The most unforgettable lesson Buck learnt was natural selection, survival of the fittest, which is the main topic of Darvin’s The Evolution Theory. In fact, the competition in the modern society is as fierce as in the wild north. We need master a good knowledge of many aspects, we need to deal with interpersonal relation as well as unspoken rules. We can’t change the environment in which we live, our only choice is to learn to change ourselves.

The other lesson I learn is the learning ability is of great importance. It is because Buck was smart enough that he could fit to his survival environment rapidly. At an unfamiliar place, he could always master the survival skills by observe other dogs. If he didn’t do so, he was likely to be weeded out. In our modern society, the learning ability is equally important, everything can change, only our knowledge, intelligence and work experience are belong to us forever.

As far as I concerned, Jack London’s description of a story is always slow, but quite firm at the same time. He always acts as a spectator to tell us about the story and reproduces the scene vividly, so that we even believe his stories are true. On account of his legendary living experience, the people that he written are tough and persistent, they own strong heart and great faith. What interest us are not the stories themselves, but the vivid roles in his stories.
