CHAPTER XIII
THE EARLY TWENTIETH CENTURY

Benefit of Clergy to uproarious farces like The Puzzler. Two of his full-length stories, The Light that Failed and Kim, rank deservedly as classics. Most of his output during his middle years was strongly AngloIndian in character. He conveys with uncanny skill the sights and sounds, the dreams and deeds, even the touch and he smell, of the vast, unfathomed Indian Empire. He traces vivid portraits of the myriad types that inhabit its hills and plains, jungles, villages, arid towns, and also of the English sahibs and memsahibs sojourning in India. He delights in reproducing, both in verse and prose, the racy speech of the British Tommy serving overseas. In Stalky and Co. he indulged in reminiscences of his own schooldays. As years passed his genius mellowed, and the slight crudities of his earlier style became toned down. The jungle Books, in which wild beasts are given the gift of speech, are masterpieces of their kind, and when Kipling turned his attention to English history Puck of Pook's Hill and Rewards and Fairies proved the marvellous adaptability of his peculiar art. His later books tended to be more subtle, allusive, and complex, and his verse lost many of the faults and a few of the virtues by which it had been marked. His love of children, animals, machinery, ships, and queer folk remained active to the end.
