Essays on Rudyard Kipling

First Edition

Edited by Jan Montefiore

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Distinguished contributors include Hugh Brogan, Daniel Karlin, Dan Jacobson, Bryan Cheyette and George Orwell
  • Kipling is a perennially controversial writer, in whom academic interest continues growing. This is the first book to give an overview of his place in history
  • Other essayists challenge received opinion, e.g. Brogan and Ricketts on World War I, Karlin on undervalued Actions and Reactions
  • Some essayists break new ground: Trivedi on Kipling and Indian languages, Booth on Kipling and homosexuality, Montefiore on The Jungle Book, Cheyette on Kipling and Jews
  • Stimulating mix of approaches: historical, literary critical, historicist (cultural studies) postcolonial, by established and younger scholars
