RUDYARD KIPLING

Classic Literary Author, Books

Rudyard Kipling (1865 – 1936)

classic book author, Rudyard Kipling, The Jungle Book, Mark Twain, IndiaRudyard Kipling was born Joseph Rudyard Kipling in India, though of British descent and origins; his parents having moved from Staffordshire shortly before his arrival.

At the age of six, he was taken England with his three year old sister, and was raised for the next six years in Portsmouth in a period Rudyard had few fond memories of.

Rudyard Kipling attended a college in Westward Ho! Devon, and went on to become an assistant editor of a small newspaper. In 1882 he sailed off for Bombay, still writing stories for the gazette. In 1889 Rudyard left India visiting locations such as San Francisco, Oregon, Seattle, New York (where he met Mark Twain) Canada, Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan.

In 1892 he married Carrie Balestier and took their honeymoon in the US and Japan, before settling in their cottage where they soon had their first child together. It was also during that winter that the inspiration for The Jungle Book started to come to him.

Rudyard Kipling was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1907 for his imaginative works.
At the age of 70, he died of cerebral hemorrhage.
