Kim (Wordsworth Classics)

De (autor) Cedric Watts
Notă GoodReads:
en Limba Engleză Paperback – May 1994

With a new Introduction by Cedric Watts, Research Professor of English, University of Sussex.

Kim is Rudyard Kipling’s finest work. Now controversial, this novel is a memorably vivid evocation of the life and landscapes of India in the late nineteenth century. Kim himself is a resourceful lad who befriends a lama, an ageing priest; and both embark on a combined quest. Whereas Kim has an insatiable interest in the varied activities around him, the lama seeks redemption from the ‘Wheel of Life’. Kim becomes involved in the ‘Great Game&rsquo:, undertaking espionage for the British rulers.

This engrossing and moving novel, with its diversity of memorable characters, offers many insights into political, religious and social tensions.

Notă biografică

RUDYARD KIPLING was born in Bombay in 1865. In 1882 Kipling started work as a journalist in India, and while there produced a body of work, stories, sketches and poems - notably Plain Tales from the Hills (1888) - which made him an instant literary celebrity when he returned to England in 1889. His most famous works include The Jungle Book (1894), Kim (1901) and the Just So Stories (1902). Kipling refused to accept the role of Poet Laureate and other civil honours, but he was the first English writer to be awarded the Nobel Prize, in 1907. He died in 1936.

Guardian

"As fresh and clear as the air of its Indian mountains setting."
Daily Telegraph
"No summary can do this marvellous, rich and unforgettable novel anything like justice" -- Philip Pullman "The greatest of all Kipling's books" -- E. M. Forster "I'm a passionate fan of Kipling. I think Kim is a singular and extraordinary novel, one of the greatest in English" -- A. A. Gill "I don't just admire, I adore Kim" -- Mark Tully "The great adventure of identity, intrigue and India, and several other things too, including the extraordinary potency of words" Guardian

Textul de pe ultima copertă

Kim tells the story of Kimball O'Hara, an orphaned Irish boy growing up in late nineteenth-century India, and his quest for identity as he strives to reconcile his Western inheritance with the Indian life he has always known. This edition sets the novel in the context of the historical period and addresses Kipling's ambivalent relationship with India, the Empire's treatment of the "other" classes and races who worked to maintain the British presence in India, and the place of Kim in Kipling's career as a writer.

Appendices include contemporary reviews of the novel and historical documents on Britain's and Russia's struggle for control of Asia, Indian colonization, and the writing of Kim.
