recent US reprints of this novel, only the Hill and Wang edition of ca.
1974 is a full text; the others (e.g. Hill and Wang 1967 and Bantam 1971)
misadvisedly omit London’s "Foreword," which is ostensibly by the
utopian commentator, "Anthony Meredith"; see Darko Suvin, "Is the
Publisher Always Right?," SFWA Buletin No. 51/52 (Summer 1974), and
his letter in No. 53A (Fall 1974).

S7-S35. Secondary Works.
S7. Charmian London. The Book of Jack London. 1921 (NY:
Century; 2 vols., 422p and 414p). Sentimental and hero-worshiping biography,
valuable as a record of London’s conversations and letters.
S8. Fred Lewis Pattee. "The Prophet of the Last
Frontier." 1922 (pp. 98-160 of his Side-Lights on American Literature,
NY: Century). 1930 (rev. as "Jack London," pp. 121-43 of his The
New American Literature: 1890-1930, NY&L: Century). Within a limited
artistic range, London, like Kipling, was a master of iconoclastic extremes and
"startling pictures," a "prophet of blood and vulgarity" in
the turn-of-the-century reaction against aestheticism. His "fierce
individualism" and "supermen" are characteristic dreams from the
youthful American west. An old-fashioned approach, deploring his materialism and
finding redeeming qualities in his regional Americanism.
S9. Granville Hicks. The Great Tradition: An Interpretation
of American Literature Since the Civil War.
1933 (rev. 1935, NY: Macmillan; pp. 186-96). Spencer and Nietzsche had a greater
influence on London’s thought than socialism. Nothing was more appealing to
him than the "primitive man," "strong, brutal, simple, seizing
what he wanted."
S10. Irving Stone. Sailor on Horseback: The Biography of
Jack London. 1938 (Garden City NY: Doubleday, 337p). 1947 (as Jack
London, Sailor on Horseback: A Biographical Novel, same publisher). Of the
two sub-titles, that of the 1947 edn is the more accurate characterization of
the book. Some interesting details, but weak interpretation.
S11. Thomas King Whipple. "Jack London—Wonder
Boy." 1938 (Saturday Review of Literature, Sept 24). 1943 (pp. 93-104
of his Study Out the Land, U of California Press; rpt 1971, Freeport NY:
Books for Libraries Press). London’s glorification of power, violence, the
"primitive, barbaric hero," and even racism was an individualistic
"compensatory myth" of the lower middle class into which he was in
fact born and for which he spoke. A corrective to Foner’s view of London as a
working-class rebel (see S16).
S12. Joan London. Jack London and His Times: An
Unconventional Biography. 1939 (NY: Doubleday, Doran; rpt 1968, Seattle and
London: U of Washington Press; 385p). Sympathetic though critical appraisal, by
London’s socialist daughter, of the evolution of his ideas and personality set
against contemporary social and political history. Many literary, ideological,
and political influences on him are discussed: Kipling, Ouida, the popular
magazines, Kidd, Ghent. Although London was born in the working class, developed
a proletarian class consciousness, and had sincere socialist convictions, his
socialism was distorted by middle-class ambitions for wealth and success which
led to frustration and disillusionment and eventually destroyed him. The Iron
Heel is described (pp. 305-15) as an "intensely personal... rebuke and
challenge" to the reformism of the American Socialist Party, and the
critical reaction to the novel is reviewed. Though not definitive (in
particular, it says little about London’s work as literature), it is the best
overall survey and a fundamental work.
S13. George Orwell. "Prophecies of Fascism." 1940 (Tribune,
July 12). 1968 (pp. 29-33 of Vol. 2 of The Collected Essays, Journalism and
Letters of George Orwell, ed. Sonia Orwell and Ian Angus, L: Seeker &
Warburg, and NY: Harcourt, Brace & World). The Iron Heel was not an
"accurate forecast" of fascism, but London realized that the
transition to socialism would not be automatic. Compared to Wells’s When
the Sleeper Wakes and Huxley’s Brave New World, his insight was
that a "ruling class has got to have a strict morality, a quasi-religious
belief in itself." His exaltation of violence was a "Fascist
strain" that allowed him to understand "how the possessing class would
behave" when threatened. Opposed to all three novels is Ernest Bramah’s The
Secret of the League (1909, first pbd in 1907 as What Might Have Been:
The Story of a Social War).
S14. Leon Trotsky. "Trotsky and The Iron Heel: His
Observations on the Famous Novel." 1945 (The New International,
Apr). 1970 (as "Jack London’s The Iron Heel," pp. 221-24 of Leon
Trotsky on Literature and Art, ed. Paul N. Siegel, NY: Pathfinder Press).
The prime importance of The Iron Heel lies in the "independence of
its historical foresight" of "bloody cataclysms" and their social
bases. It is an audaciously hyperbolic extrapolation of "tendencies [toward
oppression, cruelty, bestiality] rooted in capitalism" into fascism.
S15. George Orwell. "Introduction." 1946 (in London’s
Love of Life and Other Stories, L: Elek). 1968 (pp. 23-29 of Vol. 4 of The
Collected...Orwell; see S13). Repeats the assessment of The Iron Heel
made in S13. London was for both democracy and "natural aristocracy";
deeply influenced by a crude Darwinist Survival of the Fittest, he also had a
theoretical and practical understanding of suffering under industrial
capitalism. Where these two convictions interact, as in some stories about the
savagery of Nature and of industrial society, he is at his best. Even then, the
texture of his writing is poor.
S16. Philip S. Foner. "Jack London: American Rebel."
1947 (pp. 3-130 of his Jack London: American Rebel: A Collection of his
Social Writings Together with an Extensive Study of the Man and his Times,
NY: Citadel; rpt 1964 by Citadel with updated bibliography and supplementary
materials, mostly from "letters of London or interviews with him").
1964 (the essay, bibliography, and supplementary materials rpt by Citadel as Jack
London: American Rebel; 155p). Biographical and historical introduction to
London’s socialist writings and thought. London is viewed as a class-conscious
proletarian, albeit one with problematic "contradictions." A plot
summary of The Iron Heel (pp. 87-97) is accompanied by unsupported
S17. Maxwell D. Geismar. "Jack London: The Short
Cut." 1953 (pp. 139-216 of his Rebels and Ancestors: The American Novel,
1890-1915, Boston: Houghton Mifflin; rpt 1963, NY: Hill & Wang). A
tightly argued survey of London’s fiction tracing "a satanic cosmos"
or Darwinian Nightmare about a primitive world where the solitary hero is
surrounded by animals—e.g. the exemplary Before Adam. The Iron Heel,
a key work of American radicalism, contains careless passages but also a
"rich, sardonic historical imagination" with brilliant insights; it is
a blueprint of fascism, fusing social pathology and the "evangelical
Marxist dialectic." Its central device is looking at contemporary behavior
as if it belonged to a curious primitive age. The bad Star Rover
interestingly combines the will to die and omnipotence. London was ruined by
S18. Kenneth S. Lynn. "Jack London: The Brain
Merchant." 1955 (pp 75-118 of his The Dream of Success: A Study of the
Modern American Imagination, Boston & Toronto: Little, Brown). London’s
life outlook was a blend of Horatio Alger and Karl Marx, and the
"conflicting claims" of socialism and success eventually broke him.
Despite some interesting references to The Iron Heel, the central claims
of the essay—e.g. that London’s socialist heroes are "frustrated Alger
heroes"—are very questionable, and the documentation for the supporting
quotations is lacking.
S19. Gordon Mills. "Jack London’s Quest for
Salvation." 1955 (American Quarterly, Spring, 7:3-14). In his
fiction London juxtaposed individualism and socialism through "an attack on
social hypocrisy" (especially through the radical heroine) and "the
structure of his plots." In roughly one-third of his novels, an adventure
theme yields midway through the book to a love theme which is a critique of
"unrestrained individualism and brutality." For London, socialism
would lead to a society of "universal love," in which natural human
impulses "could be expressed with neither hypocrisy nor brutality."
S20. Sam S. Baskett. "A Source for The Iron Heel."
1955 (American Literature, May, 27:268-70). Similarities in phrasing,
ideas, and incidents to articles in the Oakland Socialist Voice suggest
that the paper was an important source for The Iron Heel. Much of London’s
knowledge of Marxism seems to come from such secondary sources.
S21. I.M. Badanova. "Kniga revolutsionnogo gneva."
1956 (Uch. zap. Tashkentskogo GPI innostranykh iazykov, Issue 1, pp. 151-73).
Interesting points on composition, characterization, and images in The Iron
Heel are almost submerged in pragmatic political moralizing.
S22. Charles Child Walcutt. Jack London: Blond Beasts and
Supermen." 1956 (pp. 87-113 of his American Literary Naturalism, A
Divided Stream, Minneapolis: U of Minnesota Press). London’s
"intellectual furniture"—the contradiction between Spencerian
Darwinism and moral idealism, the Nietzschean and the "red-blooded"
Superman—makes him a case study of a naturalism divided internally between
freedom and determinism, "egotistical self-assertion" and social
S23. Deming Brown. "Jack London and O. Henry." 1962
(pp. 219-38 of his Soviet Attitudes Toward American Writing, Princeton:
Princeton U Press). London’s popularity and critical reception in Russia:
after interesting oscillations, Soviet criticism has come to view him as a
"typical ‘petty bourgeois rebel.’"
S24. Loren Eiseley. "Epilogue: Jack London,
Evolutionist." 1970 (London’s Before Adam, NY: Macmillan; pp. 105-11
of 1970 Bantam ph edn). Although much of London’s evolutionary theory is no
longer considered valid, Before Adam still has value in its contrast
between the way of the "simple, wordless, and childlike" Folk and that
of the Fire People who spread horror and disturb the balance of nature. London’s
nostalgic sympathies lie with the former, the underdogs who, with their
primitive sense of love and loyalty, have not yet acquired "the deadly
killing nature of true men."
S25. V. M. Bykov. Dzhek London. 1964 (Moskva: Izd.
Moskovskogo univerziteta; 254p). Survey of London’s work and ideas,
concentrating on the novels. Profits from independent source research,
especially on The Iron Heel (pp. 72-101). An appendix contains translated
biographical material and a select bibliography.
S26. Frederic Cople Jaher. "Jack London: The Stone the
Builders Rejected." 1964 (pp. 188-216 of his Doubters and Dissenters:
Cataclysmic Thought in America, 1885-1918, NY: Free Press of Glencoe).
Classifies London as the "romantic adventurer" type, the individual
who has no "coherent self-image" and constantly seeks new thrills.
Brief comments on "The Unparalleled Invasion" (#12), "The Dream
of Debs" (#11), and "Goliah" (#10); longer arguments on The
Scarlet Plague (#15) and especially The Iron Heel (#7). The violence
and destruction of the latter serves the dual function of "paranoid
revenge" for social frustration and "gratification of...death
wish," by a man without hope for himself and hence for society. Standard
psychoanalytic reduction of black social horizons to individual causes.
S27. Charles Child Walcutt. Jack London. 1966 (U of
Minnesota Pamphlets on American Writers, No. 57; Minneapolis: U of Minnesota
Press; 48p). A superficial survey.
S28. Richard Weiderman. "Jack London: Master of Science
Fiction." 1971 (The London Collector, Apr, pp. 14-23). An elementary
discussion of London’s SF and its background (Wells, Stanley Waterloo). The
two ways to human happiness are Marxist revolution (The Iron Heel) or
"an all-powerful ruler" ("Goliah"). Includes a 17-item
S29. Bernard Poli. "Deux Romans d’Anticipation: Looking
Backward et The Iron Heel." 1972 (pp. 143-57 of his Le Roman
Américain 1865-1917: Mythes de la FrontiÈre et de la Ville, Paris:
Librairie Armand Colin). The Iron Heel, like Bellamy’s Looking
Backward, stands in judgment on the corruption and injustice of contemporary
society, ruled by a perfidious and hypocritical upper class. In both, the
socialist future returns no longer to a harmonic nature, but arrives through a
symbolic underground at a new fraternal city. London’s "underlying image
is that of the biblical cities which draw the vengeful and destructive
fire," while the revolutionaries plan a New Jerusalem.
S30, Dale L. Walker. The Alien Worlds of Jack London.
1973 (Grand Rapids: Wolf House Books; 47p). London was "a creator of alien
worlds." His "fantasy tales" are divided into "weird,"
"SF," "pre-history," and "futuristic," plus "unclassifiables."
Mentions influences of SF on and by London. A rambling and superficial account,
little more than a series of plot summaries. Includes a haphazard bibliography
of London’s "Fantasy Fiction Works" with 26 entries.
S31. Earle Labor. Jack London. 1974 (Twayne’s United
States Authors Series, 230; NY: Twayne; 179p). Monograph on London and his major
works with much praise and a decidedly Jungian and mystical bias. "The
quest for Paradise" opposed to corrupt civilization recurs throughout
London’s work and career. He personifies the American transition from buoyant
individualism to melancholy fragmentation. His fiction cannot sustain a long
narrative, it abounds in didacticism, sentimentality, and flat characterization,
but it is powerful because it re-creates archetypes. Within one of London’s
"major fictional modes"—"fantasy"— The Iron Heel
(pp. 101-05), though downplayed as generally lifeless and marred by a bad choice
of narrator, is a disquieting "vision of urban holocaust"; other SF
stories and novels (pp. 105-15) also have apocalyptic overtones. Includes
chronology and selected bibliography, annotated for secondary sources.
S32. David Ketterer. New Worlds for Old: The Apocalyptic
Imagination, Science Fiction, and American Literature. 1974 (Garden City NY:
Anchor/Doubleday, and Bloomington: Indiana U Press; pp. 123-33). The Iron
Heel is an example of the first phase (dystopian fiction) through which the
"plot" of SF passes. Though London may have hoped for utopia, his
apocalyptic sensibility led him to describe only the "preceding dystopia."
Interestingly points out the novel’s moral ambiguities, transformations, and
revelations, but makes unsubstantiated claims that all of them are
"apocalyptic" in order to fit the novel into his overall theological
thesis. His ideological bias is explicated in an appeal to "a critical
reader... unable to accept the reality of London’s Socialist utopia."
S33. Richard Gid Powers. "Introduction." 1975 (pp.
vi-xxiii of his The Science Fiction of Jack London: An Anthology; see Cl).
London’s SF stories (in C1) are discussed with reference to his being a member
of an "outcast class" without culture or tradition and to his search
for the "quick artistic fix, the grand theory" to orient him. His SF,
which has for theme man dominated by natural laws, uses evolutionary racism and
revolutionary socialism for deductive writing rather than generalization from
specific cases. The literary tradition from Mary Shelley and Poe to Wells and
other contemporaries is also mentioned.
S34. Philip José Farmer. "Foreword." 1975 (pp. vii-x
of Walker’s Curious Fragments: Jack London’s Tales of Fantasy Fiction;
see C2). Brief comments on the short stories in the volume (C2). London’s
fiction influenced Farmer as well as other prominent SF writers including Asimov,
Clarke, and Heinlein.
