1865-1936

Writer, born of British parents in Bombay, India. Educated at boarding school in England, UK, he returned in 1882 to India, where he worked as a journalist. His satirical verses and short stories, such as Plain Tales From the Hills (1888) and Soldiers Three (1892), won him a reputation in England, to which he returned in 1889 and settled in London. His verse collections Barrack Room Ballads (1892) and The Seven Seas (1896) were highly successful, as were the two Jungle Books (1894--5), which have become classic animal stories. Kim appeared in 1901, and the classic Just So Stories in 1902. Later works include Puck of Pook's Hill (1906) and the autobiographical Something of Myself (1937). He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907.
