Man Who Would be King&Other Stories

Серия: "Wordsworth Classics"

With an Introduction by Cedric Watts, Research Professor of English, University of Sussex. This anthology of tales by Rudyard Kipling contains some of the most memorable and popular examples of the genre of which he is an undisputed master. The Man Who would be King (later adapted as a spectacular film) is a vivid narrative of exotic adventure and disaster. The other tales include the ironic, horrific, poignant and haunting. Here Kipling displays his descriptive panache and realistic boldness. Shrewd, audacious, abrasive and challenging, he remains absorbingly readable.

Rudyard Kipling

Amistad
No hay placer comparable al de encontrar un viejo amigo excepto el de lograr uno nuevo.
Personalidad
Pudo haber sido esto, pudo haber sido aquello, pero se le ama y se le odia por lo que es.
Saber
Seis honrados servidores
me enseñaron cuanto sé;
sus nombres son cómo, cuándo,
dónde, qué, quién y por qué.
Solidaridad
Cuando la tripulación y el capitán están cordialmente compenetrados, es preciso un temporal y más que un temporal para lanzar la nave a tierra.
