Contraportada:

Everything about Kipling is extreme--the abundance of his talent, his precocity, his early fame and success, the variety of literary forms he mastered, the passionate admiration and loathing he evoked in critics and readers, the contradictions within him, the contradictions in the way he has been perceived, both during his life and after his death.

Biografía del autor:

Rudyard Kipling was born in Bombay, India to British parents on December 30, 1865. In 1871, Rudyard and his sister, Trix, aged three, were left to be cared for by a couple in Southsea, England. Five years passed before he saw his parents again. His sense of desertion and despair were later expressed in his story "Baa Baa, Black Sheep" (1888), in his novel"The Light That Failed"(1890), and his autobiography, "Something of Myself"(1937). As late as 1935 Kipling still spoke bitterly of the House of Desolation at Southsea: I should like to burn it down and plough the place with salt.
At twelve he entered a minor public school, the United Services College at Westward Ho, North Devon. In"Stalky""and CO."(1899) the myopic Beetle is a self-caricature, and the days at Westward Ho are recalled with mixed feelings. At sixteen, eccentric and literary, Kipling sailed to India to become a journalist. His Indian experiences led to seven volumes of stories, including"Soldiers Three"(1888) and"Wee Willie Winkie"(1888).
At twenty-four he returned to England and quickly tuned into a literary celebrity. In London he became close friends with an American, (Charles) Wolcott Balestier, with whom he collaborated on what critics called a dime store novel. Wolcott died suddenly in 1891, and a few weeks later Kipling married Wolcott s sister, Caroline. The newlyweds settled in Brattleboro, Vermont, where Kipling wrote"The Jungle Book"(1895), and most of"Captains Courageous"(1897). By this time Kipling s popularity and financial success were enormous.
In 1899 the Kiplings settled in Sussex, England, where he wrote some of his best books: "Kim"(1901), "Just So Stories"(1902), and"Puck of Pooks Hill"(1906). In 1907 he received the Nobel Prize for literature. By the time he died, on January 18 1936, critical opinion was deeply divided about his writings, but his books continued to be read by thousands, and such unforgettable poems and stories as Gunga Din, If, The Man Who Would Be King, and Rikki-Tikki-Tavi have lived on in the consciousness of succeeding generations."

Descripción Random House USA Inc, United States, 1994. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 196 x 147 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. As a young writer living in Lahore during the time of the British Raj, Rudyard Kipling (1865 1936) was possessed by an enormous subject India and his genius for rendering its beauty and strangeness was even then so fully formed that we have to look to the likes of Shakespeare and Dickens to find writers equally precocious. What is even more astonishing, and what this selection of stories from across his entire career reveals, is the way that his talent grew and developed over time. The work he did toward the end of his long writing life is even better than that which marked its splendid beginnings. The forty stories collected here range across a surprising variety of subjects and techniques. Here are his superb war stories, Mary Postgate, The Gardener, and The Drums of the Fore and Aft, as well as his famous forays into horror in The Mark of the Beast, science fiction in With the Night Mail, and the ghost story in The House Surgeon. The Man Who Would Be King is an unforgettable adventure tale, Love-o -Women and Without Benefit of Clergy reveal his insight into love and passion, and Baa Baa, Black Sheep is a searing revisiting of Kipling s childhood trauma. From the nightmarish allegory of The Strange Ride of Morrowbie Jukes and the mystical visions in The Bridge-Builders to the brilliant portrait of obsession and sacrifice in his masterpiece, The Wish House, these stories showcase Kipling s remarkable narrative gifts.
