The article examines the special features of the artistic interpretation of the frontier theme in J. London's storybook "Smoke Bellew" (1912). The author pays special attention to the analysis of themes and motives, poetic means of their realization, which make it possible to speak about the connection of his late stories with the writer's early "Northern stories", and of some special features of his creative evolution. The dynamics of the main character's development, traced in the article, makes it possible to make conclusions about the continuity in J. London's views in the context of his interest to the "person - nature - civilization"problem.

Key words

civilization, culture, frontier, "American dream", world outlook, character evolution, the motive
