Abstract: Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was in his time the most famous and best-selling author in the English-speaking world (forget Thomas Hardy, Henry James, Virginia Woolf, E.M.Forster, and all that). He wrote political poems ("If," "Recessional," "Take Up the White Man's Burden"), some of the best-known children's works of all time (The Jungle Book, The Just So Stories, Stalky and Co., Captain's Courageous), and the most remarkable and unsettling novels, poems and essays on the imperial mission (Kim, Barrack-Room Ballads, Plain Tales from the Hills).
