    Il villaggio che votò la teoria della Terra piatta Door: Rudyard Kipling,

    Un piccolo villaggio inglese trova il modo di arricchirsi ingannando gli automobilisti di passaggio: con la complicità della polizia, i malcapitati vengono portati davanti al magistrato locale che li condanna a pagare multe salatissime per eccesso di velocità. Ma il gioco dura fino a quando alcune delle vittime – tra cui un giornalista e un brillante impresario – non scoprono la truffa e architettano una raffinata vendetta: fingendosi membri di una fantomatica “Società Geoplanaria”, indicono una finta riunione nel villaggio, convincendo i cittadini a votare una mozione che affermi la verità della teoria della Terra piatta, con buona pace di Copernico. È solo l’inizio di una serie di eventi che sfiorano l’assurdo, fino all’epilogo… In questo delizioso racconto, Kipling si fa beffe della credulità popolare, del potere della stampa e dell’oppressione giudiziaria, in uno dei suoi divertimenti letterari più riusciti.

    Indian Tales: By Rudyard Kipling - Illustrated (English Edition) Door: Rudyard Kipling,

    How is this book unique?Font adjustments & biography includedUnabridged (100% Original content)Formatted for e-readerIllustratedAbout Indian Tales by Rudyard KiplingIndian Tales by Rudyard Kipling is a collection of short stories told by the indigenous as well as the tourists invaders. Kipling’s vignettes of life in British India give vivid insights into Anglo-India at work and play, and into the character of the Indians themselves. The language is rough and rude, but reflects the world that it was. The stories, characters, situations, portrayals, dialogues are fresh, rich and funny, even though they were written almost a 100 years ago. The language was very Victorian but the stories probably would not have been so funny if not in such an honorary language justifying the colonial times the stories are based on. The most light and funny situations are explained in such a rich language that they seem not so ordinary and indeed exceptional. It beautifully highlights the eccentricities of the so to believe rich, cultured and polished British class in India and their funny interactions with the native population. The hope, beliefs, simplicity, faith and superstitions of the natives coupled with brute, cluelessness, straight jacket, heavy handedness of the British creates tongue in cheek humor – guarantee to generate a lot of wonder, sighs, laughs and giggles on narration back home in England. Joseph Rudyard Kipling was an English short-story writer, poet, and novelist. He wrote tales and poems of British soldiers in India and stories for children. He was born in Bombay, in the Bombay Presidency of British India, and was taken by his family to England when he was five years old. Kipling’s works of fiction include The Jungle Book (1894), Kim (1901), and many short stories, including “The Man Who Would Be King” (1888). His poems include “Mandalay” (1890), “Gunga Din” (1890), “The Gods of the Copybook Headings” (1919), “The White Man’s Burden” (1899), and “If—” (1910). He is regarded as a major innovator in the art of the short story; his children’s books are classics of children’s literature; and one critic described his work as exhibiting “a versatile and luminous narrative gift”.

    The New Army in Training: By Rudyard Kipling - Illustrated (English Edition) Door: Rudyard Kipling,

    How is this book unique?Font adjustments & biography includedUnabridged (100% Original content)Formatted for e-readerIllustratedAbout The New Army in Training by Rudyard KiplingIn the early days of World War I, patriotic feeling ran high—as did confidence in what was largely a newly created British fighting force. In autumn of 1914, Britain’s most popular writer, Rudyard Kipling, wrote six articles for the Daily Telegraph about the training of the newly mobilized British troops, all of whom had signed up as volunteers almost the moment Britain declared war. The articles described the men in their full glow of youth and enthusiasm, and waxed poetic about their strength, courage, and dashing appearance. The patriotic tone of the articles hides a painful reality: they were written just months after Kipling’s own eighteen-year-old-old son had been killed at the Battle of Loos. Early in 1915, the articles were collected in a small booklet, published for sixpence as The New Army in Training. By that time, it had already become apparent that the war was not going to be won quickly, or easily—and that in fact it was going to exact a horrifying toll of blood and treasure. The New Army in Training calls up the almost unfathomable confidence and enthusiasm of the early days of the war, helping us get beyond our historical perspective and see the past as it was actually lived.

    With the Night Mail: A Story of 2000 A.D.: By Rudyard Kipling - Illustrated (English Edition) Door: Rudyard Kipling,

    How is this book unique?Font adjustments & biography includedUnabridged (100% Original content)Formatted for e-readerIllustratedAbout With the Night Mail: A Story of 2000 A.D. by Rudyard Kipling"With the Night Mail" features the Aerial Board of Control, a fictional supranational organization created to manage air traffic for the whole world. able to limit the influence of national states and create a de-facto world government. Rudyard Kipling only wrote two science fiction stories, "With the Night Mail" and "As Easy as ABC." Both are set in the same 21st century world.Plot: It is the year 2000, and - powered by 'Fleury's Ray' - a host of transatlantic aircraft, most of them lighter-than-air (airships), are flying across the air waves. The narrator is on board a mail plane, en route from London to Quebec. The technicalities of the journey, the expertise of the crew, the radio communications they use, and the international beacons which guide the traffic, are described in impressive detail, until the Night Mail docks safely at its Receiving Tower twenty minutes ahead of schedule. There then follows a riot of invention; mock “Notices to Airmen” (similar to the Admiralty ‘Notices to Mariners’, which Kipling knew well) with information on world-wide flying conditions, and several pages of advertisements for accessories, spares, job vacancies etc. for the aircraft industry. Reading it in an age in which intercontinental air travel is commonplace, one needs to bear in mind that the first successful powered flight had only taken place two years before, in 1903, and that the first flight across the English Channel was not accomplished until four years after the story was written.
