    How The Kipling Got His ReputationOnce upon a time, Best Beloved, when the world was middle aged and good Queen Victoria sat on the throne, there was a Kipling And even though he constantly had to carry around a White Man s Burden an object, by the way, which he had invented himself, and very proud he was of it too , he was as happy as the day is long A

    What an infuriating book I don t know what infuriates methat Kipling was a racist imperialist colonizer who believed firmly in white superiority and conveyed that in every word of these stories or that Kipling is such a marvelous writer of the English language.Kipling the colonizer, imperialist, racist, supremicist, had no trouble at all mugging the oral tra

    Rudyard Kipling s Just So Stories, originally published in 1902, are perennial favourites, and can be read by adults and children alike They are known as pourquoi stories in this case fantasies about the origin of individual wild animals who live in different countries The seed of the idea lies in the storyHow Fear Came,within Rudyard Kipling sSecond Jungle Booko

    The Just So StoriesI was introduced to these stories at a age so early that I cannot remember when.Later I would re read these stories along with the Jungle Book stories, which made Kipling famous How the Elephant got his truck is his best I laughed when the Elephant s Child asked his relatives what the crocodile has for dinner and got spanked by them.However I was wo

    All these tales are like Aesop s fables about how various animals got their characteristic features They are beautiful short tales most likely derived from folk legends that Kipling heard during his time in Africa and India but still full of humour and subtle wisdom Unlike Kim, his pro empire attitude does not really pollute the innocent atmosphere of these wonderful stori

    These stories were funny, imaginative, and well written I have read several reviews that talk about Kipling being Imperialistic, condescending, and a host of other distasteful names But here s the dealhe wrote these tales in different times and they were written for his children I think such judgments might be slightly anachronistic however, I do think Kipling says some things that are g

    OK, he s a racist blackguard, but Kipling does write beautifully This was his first book I read in the original and I loved every bit of it the stories and the pictures Since I was too young to understand the latent racism and there s so much of it in here, apparently when I read it, and I have not reread it since, I will rate it based on my original reading experience five golden stars.

    The book that made me fall in love with storytelling I still have my mother s hardbound edition, with marvelous color plates, published in the 20s Kipling may have been a romantic apologist for the British Empire, but the man knew how to weave a spell in children s stories, and he can be quite playful and inventive with language Just read the first line of any number of stories and you ll immediat
