About the Author:

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was born in India. He went to school in England and then returned to India to be a writer and a journalist.

From AudioFile:

A group of boys in a nineteenth-century British military boarding school has great fun playing pranks on one another, and later preparing for real life in the real military. Rudyard Kipling's classic, according to the introduction, is loosely based on the author's own experience. Shelly Frasier performs the narrative portions in a straightforward, solemn Midwestern dialect, while imparting various British accents to every speaking character. While her accents, in and of themselves, are reasonably accurate, the deepened tone in which they are delivered suggests middle-aged men, rather than schoolboys, and renders students indistinguishable from their teachers. She presents the entire book as a tragedy, rather than the lighthearted comedy it is. R.P.L. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Kipling portrays school as the first stage of a much larger game, a pattern-maker for the experiences of life. Implied throughout the stories is the question What happened to these fifteen-year-old boys, and how did the lessons they learned at school apply to the world of warfare and imperial government? The stories are based on Kipling s own school, the United Services College at Westward Ho! in Devon, which prepared boys destined for the army or for colonial service; Kipling himself appears as the subordinate character, Beetle. This edition includes five Stalky stories which did not appear in the original volume, and thus constitutes a Complete Stalky Co.
