Rudyard Kipling | The Best Short Stories

9.90 лв.
  • With a new Introduction by Cedric Watts, M.A., Ph.D., Emeritus Professor of English, University of Sussex.

    The various tales selected for this volume display the astonishing virtuosity of Rudyard Kipling's early writings. A Nobel prize-winner, Kipling was phenomenally productive and imaginative, displaying a literary mastery of idioms, technology and technical terms, exotic locations, and social range. He gained immense popularity, becoming (as these stories indicate) the knowledgeable spokesperson for a wide public.

    Later, although Kipling's right-wing views increasingly incurred hostility, his creativity remained formidable. In this rich collection, we encounter bold realism, poignant nostalgia, dark comedy, the vividly horrific, the exuberantly fanciful and the disturbingly uncanny.

    Stories include:

    The Courting of Dinah Shadd
    On Greenhow Hill
    At the End of the Passage
    The Limitations of Pambé Serang
    The Disturber of Traffic
    'The Finest Story in the World'
    The Record of Badalia Herodsfoot
    The Ship that Found Herself
    The Maltese Cat
    'Wireless'
    'They'
    Mrs. Bathurst
    Below the Mill Dam
