Politics and Awe in Rudyard Kipling's Fiction
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2008 - 187 sider
Peter Havholm blends knowledge of political battles in 1880s British India with close readings of well-known works like 'The Man Who Would Be King', 'Kim', and 'The Light That Failed' to connect Rudyard Kipling's continuing popularity with his youthful discovery that British India could be fictionalized as wondrous. Havholm's reading both acknowledges Kipling's artistic achievement and illuminates the continuing allure of the imperialist fantasy.
