Cloth, small 4to, 24 cm, 128 pp, 114 ills. From the blurb : "KIPLING'S life and work are extraordinary, unlike those of any other English writer. They also vividly reflect an age that has passed and yet left strong, ineffaceable marks upon our lives today. The huge formative 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. All his best-known works, from Barrack-Room Ballads to The Jungle Book, from Stalky & Co. to Just So Stories, have provoked fanciful and extravagant comment. Exactly what do we mean by labelling Kipling 'imperialist' ? To what extent do such themes as betrayal and revenge in his work relate to his experience? In Kingsley Amis's penetrating new biography, we catch glimpses of the Kipling we think we know, but the picture is given substance through subtlety. When Kipling may seem to fail, Mr Amis says so; what is left is a remarkable achievement - remarkable both for its range of subject-matter, mood and technique, and for its tremendous power."
