They, published in 1905, is a somber short story that recalls a tragedy of Kipling's own life--the sudden death of his daughter, Josephine. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Joseph Rudyard Kipling (December 30, 1865 ' January 18, 1936) was an English author and poet, born in Bombay, India. He is regarded as a major "innovator in the art of the short story"; his children's books are enduring classics of children's literature; and his best work speaks to a versatile and luminous narrative gift. Kipling was one of the most popular writers in English, in both prose and verse, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The author Henry James famously said of him: "Kipling strikes me personally as the most complete man of genius that I have ever known." In 1907, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the first English language writer to receive the prize, and he remains its youngest-ever recipient. Among other honors, he was sounded out for the British Poet Laureateship and on several occasions for a knighthood, all of which he rejected.Show more
