Kipling's life and work are unlike those of any other English writer. They vividly reflect an age now passed, an age which has left strong, ineffaceable marks upon our lives today. The huge experience of India's colours and sounds and smells; a Victorian upbringing indulgent and tyrannical by turns; loneliness and alienation in the London of the English Decadence; lengthy travels round a world half modern, half strange and antiquated; an isolated yet active old age in Sussex: these are some of the many elements in the life of a man much admired, much hated and much misunderstood.
