A choice of Kipling's prose by Rudyard Kipling( Book )

1 edition published in 1952 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As a short-story writer, Rudyard Kipling is equaled only by Chekhov -- and this unusually generous selection, intended as a companion volume to T. S. Eliot's A Choice of Kipling's Verse, will undoubtedly confirm Kipling as a great master. Kipling has never wanted for advocates. The list includes George Orwell, Jorge Luis Borges, Kingsley Amis and Angus Wilson, as well as Eliot. But Craig Raine, in his original and meticulous introduction, offers a fresh overview of the work, as well as detailed readings of particular stories." -- Back cover
