The Sea-Wolf is a psychological adventure novel about a literary critic, survivor of an ocean collision, named Humphrey and, his rescuer Wolf Larsen, the captain of a seal-hunting schooner, the Ghost. Brutal and cynical, yet also highly intelligent and intellectual, he rules over his ship and terrorizes the crew with the aid of his exceptionally great physical strength.
The great thing-and it is among the greatest of things-is that tremendous creation, Wolf Larsen... the hewing out and setting up of such a figure is enough for a man to do in one lifetime... The love element, with its absurd suppressions, and impossible proprieties, is awful.' -- Ambrose Bierce
