“These, then, are your means of transport to mystery on the high seas—if, like me, you would prefer to voyage safe and warm in the comfort of your armchair. For those watery places where spirits haunt the upper deck and monstrous creatures tear at the ship’s bowels are not for the landlubber or the faint-hearted.“

—William Pattrick, from the Introduction

Joseph Rudyard Kipling (December 30, 1865, Bombay - January 18, 1936, London), English writer, poet and short story writer. His best works are "The Jungle Book", "Kim" (Kim), the poem "The last song" (Recessional). In 1907, Kipling becomes the first Englishman to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature. In the same year, he received awards from the universities of Paris, Strasbourg, Athens and Toronto; also awarded honorary degrees from Oxford, Cambridge, Edinburgh and Durham universities. The rich language of Kipling`s works, full of metaphors, contributed greatly to the treasury of the English language.  Biography Childhood Rudyard Kipling was born in Bombay (India) in the family of the professor of the local art school John Lockwood Kipling and Alice (MacDonald) Kipling. He received the name Rudyard, it is believed, in honor of the English lake Rudyard, where his parents met. The early years, full of exotic sights and sounds of India, were very happy for the future writer. But at the age of 5, together with his sister, he went to study in England. For 6 years he lived in a private boarding house, the owner of which (Madame Rosa) mistreated him, punished him. This attitude influenced him so much that he suffered from insomnia for the rest of his life. At the age of 12, his parents put him in a private Devon school so that he can then enter the prestigious military academy. The headmaster of the school was Cormell Price, a friend of Rudyar`s father. It was he who began to encourage the boy`s love for literature. Myopia did not allow Kipling to choose a military career, and the school did not give diplomas for admission to other universities. Impressed by the stories written at the school, his father finds him a job as a journalist for the Civil and Military Gazette, published in Lahore (India, now Pakistan). In October 1882, Kipling returned to India and took up the job of a journalist. In his spare time, he writes short stories and poems, which are then published by the newspaper along with reports. His work as a reporter helps him to better understand the various aspects of the country`s colonial life. The first sales of his works began in 1883.  The Age of Travel In the mid-1980s, Kipling began touring Asia and the United States as a correspondent for the Allahabad newspaper Pioner, with which he was contracted to write travel essays. Sales of his works begin to grow sharply, in 1888 and 1889 6 books with his stories were published, which brought him recognition. In 1889 he made a long trip to England, then visited Burma, China, Japan. He travels across the United States, crosses the Atlantic Ocean and settles in London. He is beginning to be called the literary heir of Charles Dickens. In 1890 his first novel, The Light That Failed, was published. The most famous poem of that time is The Ballad of East and West, as well as The Last Rhime of True Thomas.  Writing career In London, he meets a young American publisher, Walcott Balestier, and they work together on The Naulahka. In 1892, Balestierom dies of typhus, and shortly thereafter, Kipling marries his sister Caroline. During the honeymoon, the bank where Kipling had savings went bankrupt. The couple had money left only to get to Vermont (USA), where Balestier`s relatives lived. They live here for the next four years. At this time, the writer again begins to write for children; the famous The Jungle Book and The Second Jungle Book were published in 1894-95. The poetry collections The Seven Seas and The white tnesis have also been published. Two children are soon born: Josephine and Elsie. After a quarrel with his brother-in-law, Kipling and his wife returned to England in 1896. In 1897 the novel Captains Courageous was published. In 1899, during a visit to the United States, his eldest daughter Josephine died of pneumonia, which was a huge blow to the writer. In 1899, he spent several months in South Africa, where he met Cecil Rhodes, a symbol of British imperialism. In 1901, the novel "Kim" (Kim) was published, which is considered one of the best novels of the writer. In Africa, he begins to select material for a new children`s book, which comes out in 1902 under the title "Fairy tales for no reason" (Just So Stories). In the same year, he buys a country house in Sussex (England), where he remains until the end of his life. Here he writes his famous books Puck of Pook`s Hill and Rewards and Fairies - tales of Old England, united by the elf storyteller Pak, taken from Shakespeare`s plays. Simultaneously with his literary activity, Kipling begins an active political activity. He writes about the impending war with Germany, speaks out in support of conservatives and against feminism. In 1907 he became the first Englishman to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature.  During the First World War Literary activity is becoming less and less intense. Another blow to the writer was the death of his eldest son John in the First World War in 1915. Kipling and his wife worked in the Red Cross during the war. After the war, he became a member of the War Burial Commission. It was he who chose the biblical phrase "Their names will live forever" on the obelisks of memory. During one trip to France in 1922, he met the English king George V, with whom a great friendship was later struck.  The last days of the writer Kipling continued his literary career until the early 30s, although he was less and less successful. Since 1915, the writer suffered from gastritis, which later turned out to be an ulcer. Rudyar Kipling died of cranial hemorrhage on January 18, 1936 in London, only 3 days earlier than George V. Buried in Poets` Corner in Westminster Abbey. [collapse collapsed title = List of Books] * Department Songs (1886, collection of poems) * Simple Tales from the Mountains (1888, collection) * Three Soldiers (1888, collection) * The Story of the Gadsbys (1888, novel) * In Black and White (1888) * Under the Deodars (1888) * The Phantom Rickshaw and other Eerie Tales (1888) This collection contained the short story The Man Who Would Be King * Wee-Willie-Winky (1888, collection). e, black sheep * Life`s Handicap (1891) * The Light Goes Out (1891, novel) * American Notes (1891, non-fiction) * Songs of the Barracks (1892, poetry) * Naulaka: A Story of the West and the East (1892, novel, in co-authored with W.
