Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0631155775, Hardcover)This reading of Kipling argues that his fictions have a number of centrally modern preoccupations and a thoroughgoing Eastern influence, and explains religious and supernatural themes, psychic and paranormal experiences and states of emotional trauma, a preoccupation with art and the nature of inspiration. Sandra Kemp discusses Kipling's consistant polarity between East and West and their contrasting attitudes to subjectivity, to language and to narrative. These are the hidden narratives which she traces through a range of stories. They take the form of divided representations of identity, of voice, of truth, of sanity and literature, and of the narrative function of lies, secrecy and silence. The book will be of interest to students and scholars of English literature.
