"As a short-story writer, Rudyard Kipling is equaled only by Chekhov -- and this unusually generous selection, intended as a companion volume to T. S. Eliot's A Choice of Kipling's Verse, will undoubtedly confirm Kipling as a great master. Kipling has never wanted for advocates. The list includes George Orwell, Jorge Luis Borges, Kingsley Amis and Angus Wilson, as well as Eliot. But Craig Raine, in his original and meticulous introduction, offers a fresh overview of the work, as well as detailed readings of particular stories." -- Back cover.

Nach über 125 Jahren die erste vollständige deutsche Ausgabe - in der bewunderten Neuübersetzung von Gisbert Haefs Während des Sommers wird Simla, die verträumte Hill Station in den Bergen Nordindiens, zur Hauptstadt des riesigen Kolonialreichs. Briten wie Inder flüchten hierhin vor der erstickenden Hitze. Doch die Widersprüche zwischen ihnen sind mit im Gepäck: Grell und farbig wie indischen Gewürze leuchtet die Gewalt zwischen den Kulturen, die hier wie dort den Alltag bestimmt. Als die »Plain Tales from the Hills« 1888 erschienen, war Kipling gerade 23 Jahre alt, aber schon seit 5 Jahren rasender Reporter und hatte seine Erzählkunst so perfektioniert, dass sie dem Schöpfer des »Dschungelbuchs« 1907 den Nobelpreis einbrachte.

»Captains Courageous« is the adventure story of Harvey Cheyne, spoilt son of an American billionaire. On a voyage across the Atlantic Ocean, the young man goes overboard and is saved by fishermen from Newfoundland. The men don’t believe the story of Harvey’s wealth and treat him like one of their own. Harvey has to work hard and live the life of an ordinary fisher. At first, he is unable to cope with the new challenges, but finally he becomes stronger and learns to judge life from a different perspective. Rudyard Kipling was born in 1865 in Bombay as son of an Anglo-American family. At the age of five, he was taken to England where he was educated. He returned to India as a young man and started working as a journalist and novelist. His most popular fictional works were »The Jungle Book« (1894) and »Kim« (1901). In 1907 Kipling was the youngest and first English author to receive the Nobel Price for literature. He died in London in 1936.

'I am inclined to think that we want new forms . . . as well as thoughts', confessed Elizabeth Barrett to Robert Browning in 1845. The Oxford Handbook of Victorian Poetry provides a closely-read appreciation of the vibrancy and variety of Victorian poetic forms, and attends to poems as both shaped and shaping forces. The volume is divided into four main sections. The first section on 'Form' looks at a few central innovations and engagements—'Rhythm', 'Beat', 'Address', 'Rhyme', 'Diction', 'Syntax', and 'Story'. The second section, 'Literary Landscapes', examines the traditions and writers (from classical times to the present day) that influence and take their bearings from Victorian poets. The third section provides 'Readings' of twenty-three poets by concentrating on particular poems or collections of poems, offering focused, nuanced engagements with the pleasures and challenges offered by particular styles of thinking and writing. The final section, 'The Place of Poetry', conceives and explores 'place' in a range of ways in order to situate Victorian poetry within broader contexts and discussions: the places in which poems were encountered; the poetic representation and embodiment of various sites and spaces; the location of the 'Victorian' alongside other territories and nationalities; and debates about the place - and displacement - of poetry in Victorian society. This Handbook is designed to be not only an essential resource for those interested in Victorian poetry and poetics, but also a landmark publication—provocative, seminal volume that will offer a lasting contribution to future studies in the area.
