The letters of Rudyard Kipling  v. 1. 1872-89 ~ v. 6. 1931-36

edited by Thomas Pinney

'The letters bring the man marvellously alive...a perfect bedside book and an important contribution to Kipling scholarship.' - Ian McIntyre, Times;Volume 3 of Kipling's Letters covers the decade 1900-10, the years in which Kipling published Kim, Just So Stories, The Five Nations, Traffics and Discoveries, Puck of Pook's Hill, Actions and Reactions, and Rewards and Fairies. The narrative of his life includes the years in South Africa during and after the Boer War, his move to Bateman's in Sussex, his increasing involvement in the politics of preparedness and the growing record of his honours, culminating in the Nobel Prize.

Kipling's letters, never before collected and edited and largely unpublished, are now presented in an annotated edition based on the more than 6,000 letters preserved in public and private collections all over the world. Planned in an edition of four volumes, the Letters reveal Kipling with a fullness and immediacy of detail unmatched by any other source. The first two volumes present the first half of Kipling's life, down to the end of the nineteenth century. They show the remarkable transformation of the young schoolboy into the seasoned Indian journalist, and the even more remarkable transformation of the Indian journalist into the famous writer, the most dazzling literary success of the 1890s. Kipling's hard years of apprenticeship, his restless travels and eager encounters with cities and men, his triumphant struggles in the literary wars, are all vividly set forth. The Letters also take Kipling through his marriage and the births of his children, through the mingled happiness and distress of his American years, to the tragedy of his daughter's death at the very highest moment of his literary fame.

The fourth volume of Kipling's letters takes the story of his life from the end of the Edwardian era through the Great War. The years just before the war saw the publication of "Rewards and Fairies" and "Songs from Books". During the war he published no new fiction but only the work he did as war correspondent and propagandist, including "France at War", "The Fringes of the Fleet", and "The Eyes of Asia". In 1915, his only son, John, was killed. Kipling's last volume of poems, "The Years Between" (1919), embodies the suffering and bitterness of these years.
