The Jungle Book (1894) is a collection of stories written by Rudyard Kipling.The tales in the book (and also those in The Second Jungle Book which followed in 1895, and which includes five further stories about Mowgli) are fables, using animals in an anthropomorphic manner to give moral lessons. The verses of The Law of the Jungle, for example, lay down rules for the safety of individuals, families and communities. Kipling put in them nearly everything he knew or "heard or dreamed about the Indian jungle."The stories were first published in magazines in 1893–94. The original publications contain illustrations, some by the author's father, John Lockwood Kipling. Rudyard Kipling was born in India and spent the first six years of his childhood there. After about ten years in England, he went back to India and worked there for about six-and-a-half years. These stories were written when Kipling lived in Naulakha, the home he built in Dummerston, Vermont, in the United States.Joseph Rudyard Kipling (30 December 1865 – 18 January 1936) was an English journalist, short-story writer, poet, and novelist.Kipling's works of fiction include The Jungle Book (1894), Kim (1901), and many short stories, including "The Man Who Would Be King" (1888). His poems include "Mandalay" (1890), "Gunga Din" (1890), "The Gods of the Copybook Headings" (1919), "The White Man's Burden" (1899), and "If—" (1910). He is regarded as a major innovator in the art of the short story; his children's books are classics of children's literature, and one critic described his work as exhibiting "a versatile and luminous narrative gift".Kipling was one of the most popular writers in the United Kingdom, in both prose and verse, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Henry James said: "Kipling strikes me personally as the most complete man of genius, as distinct from fine intelligence, that I have ever known."In 1907, at the age of 42, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the first English-language writer to receive the prize and its youngest recipient to date. He was also sounded out for the British Poet Laureateship and on several occasions for a knighthood, both of which he declined.

    Trascorse la prima infanzia in India dove il padre, J. Lockwood Kipling, esperto d’arte e pittore egli stesso, era conservatore del museo di Lahore. Nel 1871 fu mandato in Inghilterra, a Southsea, presso una parente anziana: vi passò anni di solitudine e di infelicità, dai quali prenderà più tardi spunto per un celebre racconto, Bee bee, pecora nera (Baa, baa, black sheep, in Wee Willie Winkie..., 1888). Nel 1878 K. entrò nello United Service College di Westward Ho, Devonshire, che K. descriverà nei realistici racconti di Stalky e Soci (Stalky & Co., 1899). In India tornò nel 1882 come giornalista; è a questo periodo che risale l’assunzione dei temi e degli interessi che diventeranno caratteristici dello scrittore, come... Approfondisci
