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 Publishers Weekly:
British critic Seymour-Smith maintains that Kipling (1865-1936) was a repressed homosexual who feared his sadomasochistic and other erotic impulses. The author goes through contortions in attempting to bend the scanty biographical evidence to fit his thesis. He probes Kipling's marriage to "gloomy dragon" Caroline Balestier, arguing that he was really in love with her brother Wolcott. Published in Britain to much controversy, this study portrays Kipling as a morbidly secretive self-hater who, at his best, rose above his mean-spririted imperialist politics through his writings. Seymour-Smith, who champions Kipling as a major talent, offers close readings of neglected stories as well as of the novels and children's books. He claims that when Kipling's imagination was working at full throttle he was "positively Shakespearean." Photos.
