The Cause of Humanity and Other Stories by Rudyard Kipling
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Rudyard Kipling's (1865-1936) work is known and loved the world over by children and adults alike; it has been translated into many languages, and onto the cinema screen. This volume brings together for the first time some 86 uncollected short fictions. Almost all of them will be unfamiliar to readers; some are unrecorded in any bibliography; some are here published for the first time. Most of them come from Kipling's Indian years and show him experimenting with a great variety of forms and tones. We see the young Kipling enjoying the exercise of his craft; yet the voice that emerges throughout is always unmistakably his own, changing the scene every time the curtain is raised.
