As mentioned last week, Norman Geras was kind enough not only to invite me to contribute to the Writer’s Choice feature on his website, but also to allow me to split my contribution over two weeks.
My first piece, on Rudyard Kipling and The Jungle Book, can be read here. The second piece, posted today can be accessed here. It is on Kipling and his critics – and more broadly on the difficulty of reading him without prejudice.
UPDATE: The article is now up on my blog here.
