Book Description
Rudyard Kipling was a great writer as well as an imperial icon whose life trajectory matched that of the British Empire from its zenith to its final decades. He went on to be awarded the Nobel Prize, and add more phrases to the language than any man since Shakespeare. However, his conservative views and advocacy of imperialism damaged his critical reputation - while, at the same time, making him all the more popular with a general readership. By the time he died, Kipling, who incarnated an era for millions, was almost forgotten. In The Long Recessional, distinguished biographer, David Gilmour, not only explains how and why Kipling wrote, but also explores the themes of his complicated life, his ideas, his relationships, and his views on the Empire, and the future. A fascinating new book, based on extensive research - especially in the under-explored archives of the United States - Gilmour`s classy book is, doubtless, a groundbreaking study of a great and misunderstood writer.
