Sinopse

Rudyard Kipling is undoubtedly among the great short-story writers in the English language. This collection, chosen by Andrew Rutherford, opens with 'The Gate of the Hundred Sarrows', the first story Kipling published as a young journalist in India, and ends with an acknowledged masterpiece, 'The Gardener', written fifty years later in the aftermath of the Great War. The stories of the intervening years show an extraordinary range of subject matter and technique, from his exploration of the tragic loves of Englishmen and Indian women in 'Lipeth' and 'Without Benefit of Clergy' , his portrayal of the game of polo in 'The Maltese Cat' seen from the viewpoint of the polo ponies, to political fables, like 'The Mother Hive', and psychological case histories such as 'Mary Postgate'.
