Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936)
Rudyard Kipling, renowned British writer and a foundation for many writers afterward, was born in Bombay of British India. He was taught the lore of India by his ayahs, or native nurses, and this can be readily seen in his works such as “The Jungle Book.” As a boy he was sent to school in England, and while he later returned to India for a time, he settled in Devon, England for the duration of his life. He considered himself - as his parents did themselves - an Anglo-Indian, and this is reflected in his writing as well. His versatile skill in writing poetry and prose earned him the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907. Rudyard Kipling’s books remain among the greatest of Britain’s literary works.
