Overview

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was an English author and poet. In 1917 he was the first Englishman to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature. Kipling was born in Bombay, British India. Many of his works have an Indian flavor and setting. His best known are The Jungle Book (1894), The Second Jungle Book (1895), and Just So Stories (1902). Kipling begins by saying, "I have collected in this volume practically all the verses and chapter-headings scattered through my books. In several cases where only a few lines of verse were originally used, I have given in full the song, etc., from which they were taken." This is an excellent reference work for anyone interesting in the works of Kipling.
