Jack London, one of the first famous fiction authors, a pioneer in talking about rights of workers and socialism, takes you on a journey of perseverance, from continuous rejection to success. But, success in this case is bittersweet. 


Martin Eden,  the protagonist, is a sailor belonging to the workers’ class. He is passionate about writing and wants to pursue it as a respectable career. His motivation  to become a famous writer increases when he meets the love of his life, Ruth Moser who belongs to the upper class. In order to prove himself worthy for Ruth and marry her,  Martin has dedicated himself to become a famous author, visiting several publishers with his work.
