《燃烧的戴莱特》是杰克·伦敦出版于1911年的一部长篇小说,讲述了一个淘金者的故事,一经推出就受到读者的热捧。

长篇小说《燃烧的戴莱特》出版于1911年,主角是个孔武有力的淘金者,在获得大量黄金之后却怀着理想主义的情绪全部放弃了。

Burning Daylight takes place in the Yukon Territory in 1893. The main character, Elam Harnish, nicknamed "Burning Daylight" was the most successful entrepreneur of the Alaskan Gold Rush. The story of the main character was partially based upon the life of Oakland entrepreneur "Borax" Smith. Bringing his fortunes to the States he is cheated out of it by a crowd of money kings, and recovers it only at the muzzle of his gun. Embarking on a new life in California, he makes another fortune by underhanded means...only to find his corrupt life suddenly turned around by the love of a woman.

杰克·伦敦,原名为约翰·格利菲斯·伦敦(John Griffith London),美国著名的现实主义作家,生于旧金山。20世纪初西方辱华作家的急先锋。他在一个既无固定职业又无固定居所的家庭中长大。24岁开始写作,去世时年仅40岁。从1900年起,他连续发表和出版了许多小说,讲述美国下层人民的生活故事,揭露资本主义社会的罪恶。他的作品大都带有浓厚的社会主义和个人主义色彩。他的作品在全世界都广为流传,是最受中国读者欢迎的外国作家之一。他一生著述颇丰,16年中留下了19部长篇小说、150多篇短篇小说以及大量文学报告集,还写了3个剧本以及相当多的随笔和论文。最著名的有《马丁·伊登》、《野性的呼唤》、《白牙》、《热爱生命》等小说。

Jack London (born John Griffith Chaney, January 12, 1876 – November 22, 1916) was an American author, journalist, and social activist. He was a pioneer in the then-burgeoning world of commercial magazine fiction and was one of the first fiction writers to obtain worldwide celebrity and a large fortune from his fiction alone. Some of his most famous works include The Call of the Wild and White Fang, both set in the Klondike Gold Rush. He also wrote of the South Pacific in such stories as "The Pearls of Parlay" and "The Heathen", and of the San Francisco Bay area in The Sea Wolf. London was a passionate advocate of unionization, socialism, and the rights of workers. He wrote several powerful works dealing with these topics, such as his dystopian novel The Iron Heel, his non-fiction exposé The People of the Abyss, and The War of the Classes.

He was a slave to himself, which was natural in one with a healthy ego, but he rebelled in ways either murderous or panicky at being a slave to anybody else. Love's sweet servitude was a thing of which he had no comprehension. Men he had seen in love impressed him as lunatics, and lunacy was a thing he had never considered worth analyzing. But comradeship with men was different from love with women. There was no servitude in comradeship.
