Biographie de l'auteur

Joseph Rudyard Kipling was born on December 30, 1865 in Bombay, India. He was one of the most famous writers in Great Britain, and was known for his great intelligence, being the first English-language writer and youngest recipient ever to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1907. He and his younger sister, Alice were sent to live in a boarding house with a family named Holloway from 1871 to 1877, and experienced cruelty and neglect. In 1878, Kipling was sent to United Services College to prepare him for the British Army. That didn’t work out however, and his father got him a job in Pakistan at a local newspaper, taking nearly a month by ship. Working at the newspaper awakened his writing talents and he began to publish at an amazing pace. In 1889, he was dismissed from the paper and traveled the United States for seven months, ending up in London, where he published his first novel. In 1891, he left to travel the world. Just before returning, he proposed to Caroline Starr Balestier by telegram and they were married on January 18, 1892, in London. They settled in Vermont, where he wrote the two Jungle Books. He became friends with Mark Twain, Arthur Conan Doyle and many others, but still managed to live a fairly private life. In 1896, his wife’s brother became violent toward him, and the case drew unwanted publicity, causing the Kiplings to return to England. He encouraged his son to enlist in the British Army during World War I, but he was killed by an exploding shell upon his arrival in France. After that incident, he kept writing, but at a much slower pace, dying of a perforated ulcer on January 18, 1936, in London, at the age of 70.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Rudyard Kipling's best children's book 11 mai 2013
Par Richard Stafford - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This is a magical collection of stories by Rudyard Kipling. It is one of the greatest children's books ever written. It is not poetry in the sense that its lines scan, but its imagery is poetic and its plot has allegorical features. It contains some of the finest literary adventures to come to us from the British colonial period. Set in a jungle in India, it is an hypnotic tale that reflects some Victorian values kindred to those found in Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan novels, although in The Jungle Book all such values had to have been carefully screened as they passed through the wise and circumspect Kipling filter. Somehow they do not seem entirely strange and alien today, although they may bear traces of the British writer's experience of regimental life in India and his many travels elsewhere. The author, a friend both of Theodore Roosevelt and American history and lore, was conscious of the drift by rival European powers and the surges of continental militarism. Somehow, perhaps, he allows his values to be colored by this awareness, yet he does not miss a single beat in relating the jungle adventure. The book is unique; no writer other than Kipling could have created it. It tells the story of Mowgli, a boy raised by wolves and the other beasts of the jungle. The behavior of the wolves that accept the boy in their family is as convincing as is the story of the great apes that accept Tarzan in theirs. Kipling is revealing more than that of which he speaks. Mowgli's adventure is a wondrous story, also about the life of every youngster with imagination and the force that is the will to be within him. The author is talking to readers about how to cope with tough problems, and he acknowledges even the hidden dangers that appear from time to time while growing up. He talks about fear and courage, predator and prey. He talks about the struggle to live and to understand. He hints at the problems of being an Englishman in India. But Mowgli is a jungle boy. Sometimes, although Kipling does not say he is, he may be talking about colonial activities. He never says that he sometimes thinks of a colonialist in an occupied country. That is not the story he narrates; he tells, instead, of the threats posed by great carnivores that hunt and kill, such as the tiger, Mowgli's greatest enemy; the panther is there, and of course the wolf, the snake, birds and all the animals of the jungle. As a wolf-boy, Mowgli may not be a direct symbol for colonial power, but several famous historical power-figures were said to have been raised by wolves, including Cyrus, the founder of the ancient Persian empire (who was father of Cambyses, father of Cyrus the Great); there were others, too, such as the traditionally celebrated founders of Rome, Romulus and Remus, who were believed to have been raised by wolves. Mowgli meets the challenges of the jungle's awful threats without the dangerous false pride some humans are believed to feel. The dreadful beasts that are the boy's enemies and the kindly ones who are his friends all communicate in a human language, and some of them have eccentricities that make them much too human (at least for some who apply special critical standards, of course, but the game being played in this is intended to produce an understandable if fictional account of a life that is in a dangerous and frightening process of developing). Mowgli adjusts to his world in a way that must be the equivalent of growing up and becoming civilized for people who have never been to the jungle. Mowgli survives and grows amid strange and dangerous beings and wild adventure. The plot and Mowgli's passage through terrifying events of jungle existence can be interpreted as somehow akin to what every child experiences while acculturating within mysterious and apparently dangerous surroundings. Most of us read the stories in this book as very satisfying adventures, but some more imaginative readers may view the Mowgli adventure as a tale of survival that each child faces in the process of gaining footing in a huge, dangerous world. Every child must learn to adjust to the society around him, and in Mowgli's case, that society is described as consisting of violent predators and prey animals. Like another character that thrives in some of these stories -- the mongoose Rikki-tikki-tavi -- Mowgli faces and overcomes enormous challenges. The depth of character, involving resilience and awareness, is what defines Mowgli; it grows with each moment of his adventure. This truly is one of the greatest of all children's books.

I have read the the Disney editions many times for my children since they were babies; now my eldest has reached an age which he can understand and hold a deeper plot. I bought this book with the thought it might be a good idea to start with familiar story. After he reads his Level 1 book, I proceed to read this story to both of my children. Every night they look foward to this story. It has been a great success.

Excellent! I am re-reading a lot of books that were once "required" reading in my High School Literature class. This one was especially fresh and fun to read again.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 having read the book 22 août 2013

I was looking forward to this book, but actually the Mowgli story was probably the most interesting and having the biggest literary value.
The other stories in this collection have strange tendencies of showing that power and subjecting yourself to power is a commendable characteristics.
So eventually I lost the interest in reading, yet forced myself just to be acquainted with the works of this author.
If to be used in a class, I would recommend excerpts (some of them have lots and interesting sound and movement descriptions), otherwise analysis and discussion probably should follow...

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A blast from the past 15 avril 2014

as my kids were growing up, we read the Disney versions of "The jungle book" and there was a fan morality. However, it was not until I read the Kindle version of the book and began to see and hear my kindergarten teacher reading "rickki tickki tavi, that I had a true memory of the stories in this book. Now outdated, and in sometimes cases politically incorrect, there is a richness here that crosses the barriers of time and culture that carries the reader into old worlds that have become New again.
