Riassunto: The standing of Rudyard Kipling, barrackroom balladeer to the common man and poet laureate of the high noon of Empire, has suffered at the hands of our changing social values in the five decades since his death. Now Martin Seymour-Smith has taken advantage of the lifting of constraints so long imposed by the Kipling family with the granting of extensive access to Kipling's personal papers. The resulting biography contains an investigation into Kipling's sexuality as a mainspring of his creativity, and the author's introduction to this edition offers a response to the criticism which his analysis provoked.
From Library Journal:
Seymour-Smith suggests that previous biographies, like C.E. Carrington's Rudyard Kipling: His Life and Work (1955; 1978. rev. ed.) and Lord Birkenhead's Rudyard Kipling (1978) have been censored by Mrs. George Bambridge, Kipling's daughter, who held control over all crucial material to protect her parents' reputation. He asserts here that Kipling married Caroline Balestier to satisfy vicariously his homosexual longings for Caroline's brother and Kipling's friend, Wolcott Balestier. Ruddy, the willful and self-assertive little boy, completely acquiesced as an adult to the domination of a shrewish wife because she knew his secret (and kept it). This thesis, interesting as it is, seems a bit too easy and suffers from rampant speculation and unchecked Freudianizing.
