Abstract: Every creature in this world might experience twist or turning point in life which has to be faced. Just like in the novel entitled The Call of The Wild written by Jack London, the main character experienced an important event that changed his entire life. It was about a dog named Buck who lived in a fancy big house owned by his master in California, Southland. Buck was suddenly kidnapped by his master’s gardener and sold to men who went to Northland to find gold. Then, during his unexpected journey from Southland to Northland, he visited many places that were so harsh and rough. In these places, Buck encountered some conflicts, both internal and external. Hoeper and Pickering defined conflicts as oppositions or clashes. The internal conflicts focuses on the oppotisions within a creature with his own mind, psyche or personality, whereas the external conflicts are the oppositions against other characters outside the protagonist. Thisthesis is aimed to derive the theme of the novel The Call of The Wild through the settings and conflicts experienced by Buck. For that purpose, Formalistic Approach was used as its capability to analyze the intrinsic elements of a novel. Finally, the results found out that the settings and conflicts which were experienced by Buck might derive the theme which turned out to be the struggle and effort of a kidnapped dog which coped the conflicts in his life during his journey from Southland to Northland and fulfilling his destiny to be the leader of a wolf pack in the hostile Northland environment.
