Summary
  • Plain Tales from the Hills, Rudyard Kipling's first collection of short stories, established his reputation and brought India to the British' imagination. Including the stories 'Lispeth', 'Beyond the Pale' and In the Pride of His Youth', they tell of soldiers, wise children, exiles, forbidden romances and divided identifies, creating a rich portrait of Anglo-Indian-society. Originally published for a newspaper in Lahore when Kipling was a journalist, the tales were later revised by him to re-create as vividly as possible the sights and smells of India for readers at home. Far from being a celebration of empire, these stories explore the barriers between races, classes and sexes, and convey all the tensions and contradictions of colonial life
  • Part of a series of new editions of Kipling's works in Penguin Classics, this volume contains a general preface by Jan Montefiore and an introduction by Kaori Nagai, discussing Kipling's portrayal of the relationship between India and England, the role of the narrator in his Plain Tales, and the revisions that he made to them.
