    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 And he would often stop for a moment, and sin...

    What an infuriating book I don t know what infuriates me that 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 traditions of the peoples his people colonized to tell his Just So Stories to his Best Beloved No trouble at all mimicking their voices with disgusting condescension, rewriting origin tales, creating new origin tales, playfully interweaving the inevitability of England s rise as though fated as he does so deftly in How the First Letter Was Written How the Alphabet Was Made by making his generative tale appear to be something it isn t Kipling s Just So Stories are propaganda at its most magical They re friendly propaganda They re propaganda of subtlety And Kipling was a master And it works so well because Kipling was so talented Love him or hate him, I think it would b...

    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 story How Fear Came, within Rudyard Kipling s Second Jungle Book of 1895, when Mowgli hears the story of how the tiger got his stripes It is possible this gave the author the idea for a whole collection The stories are told quite colloquially, in a chatty, entertaining style Now this is the next tale, and it tells how the Camel got his big hump, is a typical beginning Apart from some stylistic whimsical quirks, such as the narrator frequently calling the reader, O my Best beloved , or commands such as, Be quiet, O you person without any form, from the characters, they feel surprisingly modern and inventive The recurring theme is of a particular animal being modified from its original form by the acts of Man, who is represented as just another creature, or by some magical being For example, in The Beginning of the Armadillos , ...

    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, h...

    This was an adorably sweet collection of stories, aimed at younger readers and all centring around the themes of animals Whilst not scientifically correct in the least, this offered the reader a series of fun anecdotes about how various different animals got their defining features, such as a leopard and his spots and an elephant with his trunk.My main source of enjoyment with this book came from its amusing usage of language Alliterative terms, onomatopoeic phrases, odd pairings of words, and colourful imagery dotted each paragraph, making this both a highly visual read and one that would really shine when read aloud.Whilst I did find this a fun and entertaining little read I did also find that the nature of each story began to feel a little predictable, as the anthology wore on Whilst I understand its appeal is largely for a younger audience, I be...

    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 b...

    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 immediately understand his timeless appeal My favorites are from The Cat that Walked by Himself Here and attend and listen for this befell and became and behappened and was, O my best beloved, when the tame animals were wild The rhythm is absolutely hypnot...

    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 ther...

    They always say Never give a child a book you won t read for yourself and I agree I will be reviewing as long as I go through this book, so here we are

    How the Camel Got his Hump A dreadful tale about a camel who is lazy that as a result, a genie makes humps for the camel, end of story This is dreadful for a number of reasons 1 The camel has those humps which are a miracle in its essence The camels use it to feed and nourish because they are meant to live in harsh environments of scarce resources of food and water That shows the greatness of The God, Allah, who created it in such perfection for us to get to know him So they are not a curse upon it by a lame genie to go by for him and his generations.2 The idea that is inspired through the tale, the idea of The First Sin that is inherited by the generations all along till the end no matter how the generations behave This in not just and idea for a children story telling, in the matter of fact, it is to induce this kind of mindset to make sure that the first sin is of no use to relapse it and to be forgiven, which endorse them into practicing bad deeds and encountering diverse sins and wrong doings How the Rhinoceros got his Skin The Parsee wrong doing ...

    Beautiful and wonderful Works of genius by a man who freed himself enough that he could give himself up to that genius instead of trying to make sure that it came out perfectly As pleasing as his other works are, none I ve read can match the joy, humor, simplicity, and odd truth of these Like children s literature should be, these stories never lose their humor or punch Despite some redundancy with actual myths and some cases of artificially loweri...
