Role of wildlife in Jack London’s novel “White Fang” Student: Stanislav Rogachev
Jack London “Don’t tell the reader. Not in any case. Not in sake for anything…The reader doesn’t need your researches, your watching, your knowledge, your thoughts or your ideas, he certainly doesn’t. Put everything you’ve got inside your heroes’ stories and leave them alone”

“An’ I wished this cold snap’d break’, - he went on. ‘It’s ben fifty below for two weeks now. An’ I wisht I’d never started on this trip, Henry. I don’t like the looks of it. I don’t feel right, somehow.”
My translation «И когда уже эти холода прекратятся», - продолжал он, - «две недели уже мороз пятьдесят градусов. Знал бы – никогда не пустился бы в эту поездку, Генри. Не нравится мне все это: не по себе как-то».
Conclusion I have met absolutely new type of literature with such image of nature… This is a big step into the increasing my level of English … It is possible either to study bigger part of the text or to use more different translations of the first chapter…
