The Call of the Wild

The Call of the Wild

by Jack London

Hal

Character Analysis

Hal is not someone you want to be spending time with – not if you’re a person, and definitely not if you’re a dog. If Thornton is the ideal human, Hal is his polar opposite. Hal is violent, impatient, violent, foolish, and did we mention violent? We’d stay away from this guy if we were you.
