  • The Beast in the Jungle


    The Beast in the Jungle is the story of John Marcher, a man preoccupied with the idea that he will be slain in a dramatic fashion. This foreboding dominates his life, lying in wait in his subconscious like the eponymous beast, and causes him to squander the affections and attention of May Bartram. John does not realize that the calamity he spent so long anticipating was in fact his own inability to settle down and love May in return.
