Joseph Rudyard Kipling

The Jungle Book

The Jungle Book is a short collection of stories published by Kipling in various magazines between 1893 and 1894. Kipling spent both his early years and his late teenage years in India, and that upbringing is front and center in these stories — despite them being written while he was living in Vermont, in the United States.
The stories are fable-like, with most of them centering on the lives of anthropomorphised jungle animals and a few focused on human characters in India. The stories were popular from the start, and have since been adapted in countless ways in print, screen, and other media.

    Está ok. Sigue la fórmula de utilizar animales para representar problemas morales y sociales. Fue interesante leer las historias que no tenían que ver con Mowgli, aunque de las historias de Mowgli creo que me quedó con las versiones audio-visuales. Tiene un par de frases medio racistas, aunque tengo la sensación de que buscaba criticar a la sociedad blanca de la India.
    El último cuento me parece importante porque hace una clara crítica a la guerra. Y si bien los animales se utilizan para representar humanos, creo que la crítica se puede dirigir al uso tanto de unos como de los otros.
