About This Item

France: Mercure De France, 1981. "La paleur de la faim seyait fort bien a Kim qui se tenait debout, grand et svelte, dans ses robes trainantes de couleur sombre, une main sur son rosaire, et la'autre faisant le geste de benediction, fidelement copie sur celui de lama." Kipling classic about India translated into French text. En francais.. Paper. Very Good. Book.


Rudyard Kipling’s Kim tells the story of Kimball “Kim” O'Hara, an imperial orphan scavenging a hand-to-mouth existence in British India during the late 1890s. The novel functions as a fictionalization of Kipling’s own Indian childhood, but it is also a strong example of the adventure stories that became especially popular in the heyday of the British Empire. Kim has been noted for its detailed portrait of the people, culture, and varied religions of India.  Kim was serialized in McClure's Magazine from December 1900 to October 1901 as well as in Cassell's Magazine from January to November 1901. It is ranked 34th on The Guardian’s list of the 100 best novels and 78th on Modern Library’s “100 Best” English-language novels of the 20th century. In 2003, the book was listed on the BBC's The Big Read poll of the UK's "best-loved novel.”
