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

Joseph Rudyard Kipling (30 December 1865 - 18 January 1936) was an English journalist, short-story writer, poet, and novelist. Kipling's works of fiction include The Jungle Book (1894), Kim (1901), and many short stories, including "The Man Who Would Be King" (1888). He is regarded as a major innovator in the art of the short story; his children's books are classics of children's literature; and one critic described his work as exhibiting "a versatile and luminous narrative gift."Kipling was one of the most popular writers in the United Kingdom, in both prose and verse, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Henry James said: "Kipling strikes me personally as the most complete man of genius, as distinct from fine intelligence, that I have ever known." In 1907, at the age of 42, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the first English-language writer to receive the prize, and its youngest recipient to date. He was also sounded out for the British Poet Laureateship and on several occasions for a knighthood, both of which he declined.Kipling's subsequent reputation has changed according to the political and social climate of the age and the resulting contrasting views about him continued for much of the 20th century. George Orwell called him a "prophet of British imperialism." Literary critic Douglas Kerr wrote: "Kipling is still an author who can inspire passionate disagreement and his place in literary and cultural history is far from settled. But as the age of the European empires recedes, he is recognised as an incomparable, if controversial, interpreter of how empire was experienced. That, and an increasing recognition of his extraordinary narrative gifts, make him a force to be reckoned with."

Recenzii

"The great adventure of identity, intrigue and India, and several other things too, including the extraordinary potency of words."
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

Caracteristici

  • A startling, hitherto unpublished excerpt from the manuscript of the novel offers new insight into Kipling’s composition process.
  • A comprehensive glossary eliminates the need for intrusive footnoting.
  • Wide-ranging Kipling short stories and poems open up new access points to the origins and afterlives of Kim and its characters.
  • An introductory discussion of the novel's links to global as well as British colonial politics provides new insight into contemporary imperial issues.
  • Carefully selected readings from British Indian Survey documents and Indian journalism on Russian-British tensions at the Afghan border join an intimate, radically ambivalent 1897 essay by a colonial administrator and excerpts from Kipling's early journalism and travel writing to create a richly suggestive context for the novel.
  • Sample illustrations from the original U. S. serialized publication as well as J. L. Kipling’s bas reliefs, contemporary travel illustration and photography, and an MGM film advertisement encourage readers to attend to Kim as serial, novel, and film.
  • Longman Cultural Editions include both primary texts of major writers and contemporaneous material that contextualizes those texts, including reviews, critical essays, responses, and newspaper and magazine articles.
  • Longman Cultural Editions can be purchased individually, or a single volume can be packaged at no additional cost with The Longman Anthology of British Literature.
