Kim Paperback / softback
Part of the Wordsworth Classics series
Paperback / softback
With a new Introduction by Cedric Watts, Research Professor of English, University of Sussex. Kim is Rudyard Kipling's finest work. Now controversial, this novel is a memorably vivid evocation of the life and landscapes of India in the late nineteenth century.
Kim himself is a resourceful lad who befriends a lama, an ageing priest; and both embark on a combined quest.
Whereas Kim has an insatiable interest in the varied activities around him, the lama seeks redemption from the 'Wheel of Life'.
Kim becomes involved in the 'Great Game':, undertaking espionage for the British rulers. This engrossing and moving novel, with its diversity of memorable characters, offers many insights into political, religious and social tensions.
