Kipling, R. (n.d.). American Notes. Retrieved from

Introduction: In an issue of the London World in April, 1890, there appeared the following paragraph: ?Two small rooms connected by a tiny hall afford sufficient space to contain Mr. Rudyard Kipling, the literary hero of the present hour, ?the man who came from nowhere,? as he says himself, and who a year ago was consciously nothing in the literary world.? Six months previous to this Mr. Kipling, then but twenty?four years old, had arrived in England from India to find that fame had preceded him. He had already gained fame in India, where scores of cultured and critical people, after reading ?Departmental Ditties,? ?Plain Tales from the Hills,? and various other stories and verses, had stamped him for a genius. Fortunately for everybody who reads, London interested and stimulated Mr. Kipling, and he settled down to writing. ?The Record of Badalia Herodsfoot,? and his first novel, ?The Light that Failed,? appeared in 1890 and 1891; then a collection of verse, ?Life?s Handicap, being stories of Mine Own People,? was published simultaneously in London and New York City; then followed more verse, and so on through an unending series.
