Book Description

On the strength of this concession and his accumulated oil-savings, Janki Meah took a second wife--a girl of the Jolaha main stock of the Meahs, and singularly beautiful. Janki Meah could not see her beauty; wherefore he took her on trust, and forbade her to go down the pit. He had not worked for thirty years in the dark without knowing that the pit was no place for pretty women. He loaded her with ornaments--not brass or pewter, but real silver ones--and she rewarded him by flirting outrageously with Kundoo of Number Seven gallery gang.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great collection of Kipling's stories from India 19 août 2009
Par T. Simons - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This collection was first published in 1890, and is a collection of the stories in a few previous volumes -- the book that first made him famous, _Plain Tales from the Hills_, and other books of stories set in India. It isn't a *complete* collection, though, and several gems from those volumes (most notably the story _Lispeth_, which might be Kipling's single best short story) are absent.

The stories that are in here are good reading, though, and show Kipling at his ambiguous best -- at the same time the man who was considered to be Poet Laureate of the British Empire, and the man who declined it. There are a number of good stories in here, but I'd say start with Plain Tales from the Hillsbefore this, if only so you don't miss "Lispeth."

Stories included:

"The Finest Story in the World"
With the Main Guard
Wee Willie Winkie
The Rout of the White Hussars
AT Twenty-Two
The Courting of Dinah Shadd

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Ideal introduction for those who have never 'Kippled' 12 mai 2013
Par Robert Guttman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Question: "Do you like Kipling?"

Answer: "I don;t know, I've never 'Kippled'."

For those who have never 'Kippled" and would like to try, this particular volume provides a perfect place to start. Rudyard Kipling wrote in a wide variety of literary genres, including short stories, novels and poetry, some of which was intended for children, and some of which was intended for adult readers. However, this volume of 26 short stories, set in Victorian India, can perhaps be said to represent the quintessential Kipling. This is by no means a complete collection of the author's short stories, having been culled from a number of volumes of stories that the author published. However, they do represent some of Kipling's very best. There are a number of stories of Kipling's famous "Soldiers Three", as well as some selections from other well-known works, such as "Plain Tales from the Hills". Included are such perennial Kipling favorites as "The Man Who Would Be King", the source of the equally-memorable motion picture of the same name.

These days Kipling occupies a somewhat awkward position in the pantheon of British literature, being regarded as too modern to be considered "classic", and too old-fashioned to be truly "modern". Apart from that, all that jingoistic stuff about The British Empire and "Inja" makes modern British readers feel ill at ease. It is somewhat analogous to the attitude towards Mark Twain in the United States, where "Huckleberry Finn" was actually considered for exclusion from public school libraries due to the book's repeated use of "the 'N' word". Nevertheless, both Twain and Kipling were consummate story-tellers. In the end, both were guilty of nothing more than crating characters who were real, and who spoke the way they really would have spoken.

As for this particular Kindle edition, I must add that this is one of the best examples I have struck so far as presentation and formatting is concerned. Would that they were all as good!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Kipling always good. 20 mars 2013
Par vivienne edwards - Publié sur Amazon.com

Reading Kipling is always good. Even though I like some of his other works better than this one, I still enjoyed this one very much. He takes you into the heart of India as it was in his time. Excellent use of the English language which is always a joy for me. The stories are mostly short and complete which makes it a good book for a brief reading session.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 No table of contents. 14 janvier 2014

Better to get a compendium of Kipling's work which does have a table of contents because, frankly, some of his stuff is unreadable.

If you doubt me try "We Wille Winkie". To quote Dorothy Parker "at this point fwonstant weader frowed up".

Rudyard Kipling writes clearly and evocatively bringing immediate visual images to the fortunate reader. He writes of a British Raj time which will never be repeated. Worth buying.
