1905. Two books in one. Kipling, English short-story writer, novelist and poet, who celebrated the heroism of British colonial soldiers in India and Burma, was the first Englishman to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907. Puck of Pook's Hill is a loosely linked collection of stories featuring two children, Dan and Una, who meet Puck in a meadow near their home in Sussex. Puck then arranges for a series of historical people to come and tell them stories of important historical events. Rewards and Fairies presents eleven more stories told to Dan and Una by Puck's characters, some of which also appeared in the earlier stories. The two books also contain a number of poems that are associated with the themes of the stories. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.

Although Kipling has never lost his hold on a large and admiring public, recent years have witnessed an increasing critical interest in his work. This book approaches Kipling as a writer who, from the outset of his career, sensed a potential or actual horror at the heart of things. It examines Kipling's search for meaning, a research pursued on the political, moral, and religious planes, through original and highly sophisticated explorations of history and myth. It presents Kipling as a person who knew and understood his own suffering and used it in his search for strategies to deal with the temptations of pessimism that he had known and also the prevailing temptations in a political and intellectual crisis he felt obliged to address.
