Image for Kim


Modern Library classics

by Rudyard Kipling


Rudyard Kipling's epic rendition of the imperial experience in India is also his greatest long work. Born in India and growing into early manhood, Kim wants to play the "great game" of imperialism. He is also spiritually bound to the lama, an old ascetic priest. As the two men become fired by a quest that takes them across the country, Kim tries to reconcile these opposing impulses. A celebration of their friendship in an often hostile environment, "Kim" captures at once the opulence of India's exotic landscape and the uneasy presence of the British Raj.
