KIPLING

The almost ideal opening wedge to Kipling in extensive doses is this excellent anthology. Almost it would seem to be directed to a younger audience including as it does the whole of Kim, a great deal from the Just So Stories, Puck of Pook's Hill, the Mowgli stories from The Jungle Books, and a more than generous sampling of Kipling's verse and short stories, largely those with the Indian background. His own unfinished autobiography helps place his writing intimately in relation to his life. A goldmine of engaging recall which may stimulate a new Kipling, audience.
