A study of Kipling focusing on the influence of India on his work in the context of imperialism in the late 19th century. The author illustrates how he used his experience of life in India to establish himself both as a best-selling author and a challenging literary figure. His stories of life in India, ranging from boys' adventure to the tragic and macabre, are assessed in the context of late-Victorian society. He examines the attitudes of the British towards the Empire and Kipling's pro-imperial views which are expressed in a style radically new for the time. The writer examines his style in the decade from 1888 to the appearance of "Kim" in 1901, his most sustained account, tracing his deep preoccupation with India. He also illustrates how, in the 1890s, Kipling was strangely out of step with society, amid changing social attitudes.
