London, Jack: Sandwichøerne [Danish] v1. 30 Apr 2022

Jack London, født 12. januar 1876 San Francisco – død 22. november 1916, Glenn Ellen, Californien, var en amerikansk forfatter og journalist, søn af Florence Wellmann og - muligvis - en journalist og sagfører mm. ved navn William Chaney. Moderen giftede sig senere i 1876 med en veteran fra den amerikanske borgerkrig, John London, som gav Jack sit efternavn. Født i fattige forhold, måtte han tidligt selv tjene til føden, og tilbragte nogle år nærmest som en vagabond med skiftende jobs på fabrikker og som sømand. En kort tid studerede han, men forsøgte sig så i stedet som guldgraver under den store "goldrush" i Alaska. Det var med alle disse erfaringer som grundlag, at han skabte sig en levevej som forfatter af romaner og noveller, især med historier fra Stillehavsøerne og om eskimoer og indianere højt mod nord, men også dyrefortællinger som "Når naturen kalder" og "Ulvehunden".

Om bogen
6 historier fra Hawaii omkring år 1900. På overfladen et lykkesamfund, hvor gyldenbrune mænd og kvinder tumlede sig i bølgerne om dagen og dansede hulalanaien om natten. Bag idyllen lurede missionærernes bornerthed og den hvide mands herrefolksmentalitet - men spedalskheden, der var indbragt på øerne af kinesiske arbejdere, skelnede ikke mellem hverken race eller religion.

Samlingen indeholder desuden den autobiografiske skitse Jack London, af ham selv fra 1905.

Indhold:
  • Stolthedens hus
  • Koolau den spedalske
  • Farvel, Jack
  • Aloha Oe
  • Chun Ah Chun
  • Fogeden på Kona
  • Jack London, af ham selv

Format: epub 3.
