Summary

For his last and most celebrated novel, Nobel Prize-winner Rudyard Kipling chose the setting of India during the mid-1800s. Here an orphaned boy, neither entirely British nor completely Indian, struggles to create an identity for himself. Kim undertakes a spiritual journey, serving as a traveling companion for an elderly Tibetan lama, and he also enters the political world, training as a spy for the British government.

Author Biography

Nobel Laureate Rudyard Kipling (1865–1936) is best remembered for children's tales such as The Jungle Book as well as his poetry and stories about British soldiers in India, which include "Gunga Din" and The Man Who Would Be King. Kipling was enormously popular at the turn of the 20th century but his reputation declined with the change in attitude toward British imperialism. In recent years Kipling's works have found new acclaim as a vibrant source of literary and cultural history.
