Like The Call of the Wild, Wolf tells the story of a soft, domesticated protagonist, in this novel's case an intellectual man named Humphrey van Weyden, forced to become tough and self-reliant by exposure to cruelty and brutality. The story starts with him onboard a San Francisco ferry, called Martinez, which collides with another ship in the fog and sinks. Much like the book captains courageous, it is a tale of one person transitioning-for the better. He is set adrift in the sea, eventually being picked up ("rescued" is not the right word) by Wolf Larsen. Larsen is the captain of the seal-hunting schooner Ghost. Brutal and cynical, yet also highly intelligent and intellectual (though highly biased in his opinions as he was self-taught), he rules over his ship and terrorizes the crew with the aid of his exceptionally great physical strength. Van Weyden adequately describes him as an individualist, a hedonist, and a materialist. As Larsen does not believe in the immortality of the soul, he finds no meaning in his life save survival and pleasure and has come to despise all human life and deny its value. Being interested in someone capable of intellectual disputes, he somewhat takes care of "Hump" while forcing him to become a cabin boy, do menial work, and learn to fight to protect himself from a brutal crew.

Jack Harris - The Wide Afternoon (2017)
Folk, Acoustic, Singer-Songwriter | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 00:45:06 | 104 MB
Label: Rootbeat Records | Release Year: 2017

This is the first album in five years from a highly original singer-songwriter. Jack Harris was born in Wales and as a teenager was feted in Texas, where he played the SXSW festival and won the Kerrville festival new folk award, previously awarded to Gillian Welch. He has a deep, commanding voice, and is backed here by his own finger-picked guitar and an assortment of instruments, including fiddle, keyboards and percussion, played by producer Gerry Diver, famed for his work with Sam Lee and Lisa Knapp. The melodies mix influences from Americana to British folk, while the poetic, often surreal lyrics range from the powerful, apocalyptic vision of Vanished Birds to the jaunty, finely written James Joyce tribute Molly Bloom. It’s a compelling set that was made possible through a crowdfunding campaign.
