Rudyard Kipling (1865–1936) is among the most popular, acclaimed and controversial of writers in English. His books have sold in great numbers, and he remains the youngest writer to have won the Nobel Prize in Literature. Many associate Kipling with poems such as 'If–', his novel Kim, his pioneering use of the short story form and such works for children as the Just So Stories. For others, though, Kipling is the very symbol of the British Empire and a belligerent approach to other peoples and races. This Companion explores Kipling's main themes and texts, the different genres in which he worked and the various phases of his career. It also examines the 'afterlives' of his texts in postcolonial writing and through adaptations of his work. With a chronology and guide to further reading, this book serves as a useful introduction for students of literature and of Empire and its after effects.

This Companion to Victorian Poetry provides an introduction to many of the pressing issues that absorbed the attention of poets from the 1830s to the 1890s. It introduces readers to a range of topics - including historicism, patriotism, prosody, and religious belief. The thirteen specially-commissioned chapters offer insights into the works of well-known figures such as Matthew Arnold, Robert Browning and Alfred Tennyson, and the writings of women poets - like Michael Field, Amy Levy and Augusta Webster - whose contribution to Victorian culture has in more recent years been acknowledged by modern scholars. Revealing the breadth of the Victorians' experiments with poetic form, this Companion also discloses the extent to which their writings addressed the prominent intellectual and social questions of the day. The volume, which will be of interest to scholars and students alike, features a detailed chronology of the Victorian period and a comprehensive guide to further reading.

Rudyard Kipling's autobiography, Something of Myself, was the author's last work, but it has not received the serious attention it deserves. Thomas Pinney's edition of the work, supplemented by other autobiographical pieces, aims to change that. Professor Pinney, a leading textual editor currently engaged on Kipling's letters, has consulted the available source material relating to Something of Myself. He has constructed an outline of the book's composition; described the history of its publication; established a text and a set of variants; and given a critical account of the book's design and its main themes. His annotations to the work (and to the supplementary pieces) identify references and allusions, and provide a biographical context against which Kipling's selections, omissions, and distortions may clearly be seen. The extent to which Kipling's description of his life failed to match what actually happened is extraordinary. Two of the additional items presented here (Kipling's Indian diary of 1885 and the illustrations he made for his autobiographical story, 'Baa Baa, Black Sheep') are previously unpublished. Pinney shows how they, and other forms of autobiographical writing, reflect upon or complicate the narrative of Something of Myself. This carefully prepared edition sheds new light on Kipling as a man and writer.

"This study of representative stories from the enormous body of short works by Rudyard Kipling reflects the recent revival of serious critical interest in the author perhaps best known for such children's stories as "'Rikki-tikki-tavi'" and "How the Camel Got His Hump." Helen Pike Bauer explores the full range of his short fiction, from the coming-of-age tales of Mowgli the jungle boy to the tragicomedy of "The Man Who Would Be King" to the spirituality of "They."" "Earlier views of Kipling gave short shrift to the complexity and sophistication of his narrative technique and the profoundness of his thematic concerns. Here Bauer both considers those aspects of his work that have always been part of his appeal - a vivid evocation of exotic setting, a compelling treatment of men and women in crisis, an understanding of the pains and pleasures of childhood - and explores newly discovered areas of interest - a complex narrative line, an ironic and ambivalent tone, and a poetic use of language." "Her analysis of the fiction in part 1 of this volume is organized around the abiding themes of the stories: the terror of loneliness, typified by the Britisher cast adrift on one of India's all-but-deserted outposts; the value of engagement in work and community as an antidote to loneliness; the ramifications of imperialism; the fascination of the mythic and the fantastic; the power of the imagination; the allure of the supernatural. An assessment of Kipling's artistry concludes Bauer's analysis, with particular emphasis on an area skipped over by most critics to date: his visual acuity. Bauer cites his elaborate descriptions of visual details, his ability to create meaning through visual impressions, and his use of the visual in metaphor and symbol." "Parts 2 and 3 of the volume set off Bauer's commentary with selections from some of Kipling's reluctant remarks on his writing and from recent criticism. Excerpted are Kipling's autobiography, Something of Myself, and two of his public addresses, "Literature" and "Fiction." Critic John McClure explores Kipling's portrayal of the complex mental and moral position of British Empire builders in India, and Clare Hanson assesses Kipling's place as a craftsman in the development of the short story." "The context of many Kipling stories - the experience of the British during the colonization of India, an effort Kipling saw as fundamentally good - is one not easily embraced by the contemporary reader aware of the evils of Western hegemony. But their subtext - rich in the subtleties that make up the complex of human feeling and behavior - strikes many responsive chords in the modern psyche. Bauer's Rudyard Kipling: A Study of the Short Fiction is a discerning, broadly informed appreciation of a surprisingly modern writer from an increasingly distant and exotic time."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

"Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) remains one of the most popular British authors of all time. In this controversial new biography he is subjected to the psychological scrutiny for which Martin Seymour-Smith is celebrated, and the personality that emerges is quite different from the traditional image of the Laureate of the Empire portrayed by past critics. Born in Bombay, Kipling spent much of his childhood with foster parents in Southsea, and went to school in Westward Ho! before returning to India as a journalist. In 1889 he came back to England, via the Far East and the USA, and cemented the success he had enjoyed through his writing in India. In 1892 he married, and settled in Vermont for four years. It was here that he wrote his most famous work, The Jungle Book. After further travels and a spell at Rottingdean, Kipling moved to Bateman's in Sussex, where he lived for the rest of his life. In 1907 he became the first British author to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. Martin Seymour-Smith explores beyond this exterior of conventional respectability and discovers territory uncharted by previous biographers -- all of whom have preserved the myth. He examines Kipling's life and work with rigor and insight, and unfolds the extraordinary and deeply moving story of this much-loved and much-criticized author who has come to occupy his own special place in the canon of English literature. Kipling can never be the same again."--Jacket flap.
