Sample text

It cannot be said that he was born in the House of Desolation, for the foundations of that sad place are laid in loss and Huck has never possessed anything; but he is a waif in bone, bred to the outside of the door and the edge of the circle, and he has not the temperament to turn his deprivations into advantages. The world of Huck has more rigour and crushing weight than that of Kim. The cruelty and violence that ar~ a generalized background to Kim's adventures, but are never felt, roll their products across Huck's path in the shooting of Boggs and the feud of the Grangerfords and Shepherdsons with the slaughter of the boys.

Kipling is not explicit in the tales themselves, but, tucked away where one would least think of looking for it, in the Johnsonian Preface to 'The Marred Drives of Windsor' in the completed 'Muse Among the Motors', we find the assertion that 'those same forces of natural genius, which expatiate in splendour and passion, demand for their refreshment and sanity an abruptness of release and lawlessness of invention, proportioned to precedent constrictions'. Something, too, may be gathered from the tales themselves and their accompanying verses.
