Joseph Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was an English short-story writer, poet, and novelist chiefly remembered for his tales and poems of British soldiers in India, and his tales for children. Kipling 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 works are said to exhibit ”a versatile and luminous narrative gift”. In 1907 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the first English-language writer to receive the prize, and to date he remains its youngest recipient.
