Kim (Dover Thrift Editions)

De (autor)
Notă GoodReads:
en Limba Engleză Paperback – November 2005
Nobel Prize-winning author Rudyard Kipling set his final and most famous novel in the complex, mystery-shrouded India of the mid-19th century where an exotic landscape teems with natives living under British colonial rule.
Kim, the poor orphaned son of an Irish soldier stationed in Lahore, straddles both worlds. Neither wholly British nor completely Indian, the young boy searches for his identity in the country where he was born; but at the same time, he struggles to create an identity for himself. Cunning and street wise, Kim is mature beyond his thirteen years and learns to move chameleon-like between the two cultures, becoming the disciple of a Tibetan monk while training as a spy for the British secret service.
Far above the average adventure story, Kim will captivate Kipling devotees as well as fans of tales brimming with foreign intrigue and treachery.

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.
JAN MONTEFIOIRE is Professor of 20th Century English Literature at the University of Kent. She is the author of Men and Women Writers of the 1930s (1996); Arguments of Heart and Mind:Selected Essays 1977-2000 (2002); Feminism and Poetry (3rd edition, 2004); and Rudyard Kipling (2007).

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  • A startling, hitherto unpublished excerpt from the manuscript of the novel offers new insight into Kipling’s composition process.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.
