Joseph Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was born in Bombay, and joined the staff of the 'Civil and Military Gazette' in Lahore in 1882. He began to make a name for himself through writing stories and verse, such as 'Departmental Ditties' (1886), 'Plain Tales from the Hills', 'Soldiers Three', and 'Wee Willie Winkie' (1888). He moved to London in 1889, and travelled widely before establishing himself at Burwash in 1902. The publication of his novels 'The Light that Failed' (1891), 'Many Inventions' (1893), the 'Jungle Books' (1894-1895), and 'Captains Courageous' (1897) established his fame. His later work included 'Recessional' (1897), 'Kim' (1901) and the 'Just So Stories' for children (1902). 'Rewards and Fairies' was first published in 1910. Kipling was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907.
