Über das eBook

Kipling was arguably among the most celebrated British writers of children's stories. The title story is about how a little boy, Percival William Williams has to make the journey from boy to manhood. Most of Kipling's stories had a kind of moralistic tone to them and often reflect his life in colonial British India.

Über den Autor

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was an English author and poet, born in British India. He is best known for his works of fiction, including 'The Jungle Book,' 'Just So Stories,' and 'Kim.' Kipling's literary style is distinctive for its use of the English language and its infusion of Indian culture, owing to his formative years spent in Lahore. Kipling's prose often portrays adventure, the complexities of the British Raj, and the experience of the British Empire from both colonial and indigenous perspectives. Notably, Kipling's work 'Wee Willie Winkie, and other stories' (1888) further cemented his popularity by showcasing his storytelling prowess coupled with a deep understanding of human emotions and social intricacies. His narrative technique in this collection of stories demonstrates an adept use of language that appeals to both children and adults while reflecting the era's prevalent imperialistic views. A Nobel laureate in Literature in 1907, Kipling's contributions to English literature have been both celebrated for their artistic merit and scrutinized for their imperialist themes. Despite the controversy, Kipling remains a significant figure in literature for his vivid portrayal of the British imperial experience and his enduring influence on the adventure genre.
