Descriere

“For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack,” —Rudyard Kipling, The Jungle Book

Notă biografică

Rudyard Kipling wurde am 30. Dezember 1865 in Bombay geboren und starb am 18. Januar 1936 in London. Er war ein britischer Schriftsteller und Dichter.

Als Sohn eines Kunstlehrers wuchs Kipling die ersten fünf Jahre in Indien auf. Dann wurde er mit seiner jüngeren Schwester, wie damals für viele anglo-indische Kinder üblich, nach England geschickt und dort bei Pflegeeltern aufgezogen. Kipling litt unter deren strengem Regiment und kehrte 1882 nach Indien zurück. Zunächst arbeitete er dort als Journalist.

Auch als Schriftsteller wurde Kipling erfolgreich: Bis 1888 veröffentlichte er sechs Bände mit Kurzgeschichten, bevor er wieder nach England reiste. Er ließ sich in London nieder und heiratete 1892 seine Frau Caroline Balastie, mit der er wiederum in die USA auswanderte und drei Kinder bekam. Dort begann er mit dem Schreiben von Kinder- und Jugendbüchern, u.a. das weltbekannte Werk "The Jungle Book". Nach vier Jahren kehrte die Familie abermals zurück nach England und Kipling bereiste auch Afrika. Für seine 1899 verstorbene Tochter schrieb er das Buch "Just So Stories". Mit seinem Roman "Kim" entstand 1901 sein bedeutendstes Werk. Kipling erhielt 1907 den Nobelpreis für Literatur.

Zunächst Kriegsbefürworter, änderte sich Kiplings Haltung als 1915 sein Sohn als Soldat mit nur 18 Jahren ums Leben kam. Seine Erzählungen wurden düsterer, der Erfolg blieb aus und er geriet zunehmend in Vergessenheit.

Rudyard Kipling starb 1936 im Alter von 70 Jahren an einer Hirnblutung.

Textul de pe ultima copertă

Among the most popular children's books ever written, "The Jungle Book" (1894) comprises a series of stories about Mowgli, a boy raised in the jungle by a family of wolves after a tiger has attacked and driven off his parents. Threatened throughout much of his young life by the dreaded tiger Shere Khan, Mowgli is protected by his adoptive family and learns the lore of the jungle from Baloo, a sleepy brown bear, and Bagheera, the black panther.
Subtle lessons in justice, loyalty, and tribal law pervade these imaginative tales, recounted by a master storyteller with a special talent for entertaining audiences of all ages. Included are such tales as "Rikki-tikki-tavi," a story about a brave mongoose and his battle with the deadly cobra Nag; Mowgli's abduction by the monkey people; and "Toomai of the Elephants," in which a young boy witnesses a secret ritual and is honored by his tribesmen.
This inexpensive, unabridged edition of "The Jungle Book" promises to enchant a new generation of young readers, as it recalls to their elders the pleasure of reading or hearing these stories for the first time.


Recenzii

"The original stories of The Jungle Book surpass all rollicking Disneyfied expectations. On one level, the Mancub's education is pure entertainment; on another, the jungle is symbolic of Kipling's philosophy of life, a moral playground in which the young learn to swing on the vines of life" The Times "The incantatory text of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Books still rewards reading aloud" Sunday Times "Around a century ago, Rudyard Kipling laid the foundations of modern children's literature with works such as The Jungle Book, Just So Stories and Puck of Pook's Hill. Far from the fusty Victorian conventions of the time, they were wild, magnificent stories that felt as though they'd always existed, stories people might have told each other in the caves" Daily Telegraph "So what makes these different to any other set of classics? In a moment of inspiration Random House had the bright idea of actually asking Key stage 2 children what extra ingredients they could add to make children want to read. And does it work? Well, put it this way...my 13-year-old daughter announced that she had to read a book over the summer holiday and, without any prompting, spotted The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas...and proceeded to read it! Now, if you knew my 13-year-old daughter, you would realise that this is quite remarkable. She reads texts, blogs and tags by the thousand - but this is the first book she has read since going to high school, so all hail Vintage Classics!" National Association for the Teaching of English
