    The Iron Heel Summary ä 100 The Iron HeelThe Iron Heel by Jack London is Upton Sinclair meets Wolf Larson Described by many as the first of the modern dystopian novels this one takes a strongly socialist stance clearly espousing this ideology in lengthy diatribes While reading this work I freuently compared to Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged but in contrast Both novels ambitiously seek a prophetic tone but both ultimately wind up as monological propaganda with straw

    The Iron Heel Summary ä 100 The Iron Heelto read before it gets banned This is an important book It's so important that the editors of the German Wiktionary site decided to use a uote from the book for the entry IMPORTANT I think I never used the phrase must read for a book in any one of my reviews And I'm still not doing it here But I'd answer YES if you ask “Should I read this book”Those of you who read other works by Jack London and think that this is some adventure story set in Alaska or on a ship at sea or something Forget it It's a Dystopian of pure breed The everlasting struggle between good and evil The good guys here are the ordinary people ie us and the evil one is the caste of o

    The Iron Heel Summary ä 100 The Iron HeelMy father loved Jack London When I was a child in his library the little room under the stairs there were faded copies of 'White Fang' and 'Call of the Wild' that had both seen better days I wish Dad had got beyond the boy's own adventure output that made London famous; I think it would have helped to explain some things that troubled him throughout his lifeFor 'The Iron Heel' is a fine socialist text but it is not just this Certainly the book influenced George Orwell and a stream of thought that would eventually become 1984 A dystopian novel a love story a tale of courage and prescience and sacrifice and failure The life and work of Ernest Everhard as recounted by his wife Avis but presented as history her words scarred with asterisks that lead to footnotes added seven centurie

    The Iron Heel Summary ä 100 The Iron Heel The Iron Heel is said to have been a great influence on later dystopian fiction but London's book is completely lacking the subtlety and skill of Orwell Huxley or Burgess Where the latter authors tell carefully crafted fables London relies on heavy handed exhausting and apparently plagiarized polemics Although they are almost ideological antonyms this book is much akin to Rand's Atlas Shrugged than Orwell's 1984 At least Rand's tome managed to engage the reader before embarking on endless and monotone pontifications London doesn't bother here The first hundred pages of this novels are exclusively avenues for London's sermonizing London also writes about his hero in the same rapturous heavy breathed way that Rand does like a thirteen year old girl writing bad Twilight fan fiction The Iron Heel is structured as a manuscript written b

    The Iron Heel Summary ä 100 The Iron HeelIt would be going too far to say that it does for capitalism what 1984 does for communusm but it is the closest a book I have read has gone to deserve that claim Not very typical work of Jack London the first part of the book introspective rather than full of action and is uite intellectual The first half in particular sees protagonists breaking the arguments of philooshers religion and capitalism as he takes away the curtain that hides the ugliness of capitalists from those enjoying their benifits Except for a few compassionate and bravely honest souls the capitalists reply by use of power they have gained through moneyWhile the historian called communism an unnecessary

    The Iron Heel Summary ä 100 The Iron HeelSoapparently Jack London was a witch who could see into the future A well written and thoughtful book who's anti capatilist message is really needed in our times of terribleness But I'll be honest it was so close to reality I found it a little depressing

    The Iron Heel Summary ä 100 The Iron HeelIn the Iron Heel London lays out something right in step with reality past present and almost certainly the future Jack London was a guy that had hobnobbed and interacted with the well to do he was even a member of Bohemian Grove but he had also seen the hard side of life working on fishing boats and in various brutal exploitive labor jobs doing time in jail etc So he had an insight that not many people have In this work he really lays out through fictional characters how many segments of society that claim to represent the downtrodden

    The Iron Heel Summary ä 100 The Iron HeelTo be fair The Iron Heel is a novel comprised of pro Socialism propaganda but it’s still filled with truth because London had so much truth to work with London did not need to invent stories of workers losing their limbs while working for subsistence wages London did not need to invent stories of children working for pennies in factories where they rarely enjoyed the light of day He did not need to create Capitalists that profited from all this and professed that they were the source of joy and success in society So yes label The Iron Heel for what it is propaganda but do not think that in doing so you've somehow disproven the truths that this book containsThe propaganda aspect of the book stems from London’s overt effort to instill greed on the part of Capitalism while maintaining complete silence regarding this basic human condition on the part of Socialism Throughout the book the benefactors of Capitalis

    The Iron Heel Summary ä 100 The Iron HeelThis book illustrates that just because you like some of a writers work it doesn't mean you'll like it all What we have here is an attempt at selling an ideology inside a sort of doomed romance storyand take that as I wrote it Not only is the romance doomed so is
