Kipling was one of the most popular writers in English, both prose and verse, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Henry James famously said of him: "Kipling strikes me personally as the most complete man of genius (as distinct from fine intelligence) that I have ever known." In 1907, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. This book is the world famous autobiography that Kipling penned toward the end of his life and sheds much detail on his life, career, travels and influences
Kipling and the critics by Elliot L Gilbert( Book )

1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 969 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It would be difficult to think of another artist, dead thirty years, who continues to be at once so popular and so cordially hated as Rudyard Kipling is today. Indeed, a compiler of literary reputation studies could not choose a more perplexing subject. In the last analysis, it is not upon the adulation of the crowd but rather on the long-term respect of serious readers and responsible critics that literary survival depends. Obviously, an anthology as selective as this one must give an incomplete picture of the history of Kipling studies. Yet if it at least succeeds in being representative of the Kipling criticism that has been produced in English during the last seventy-five years, it may help to explain the ambivalent attitude toward the author and his work which makes it possible for the man to be at once so very popular and so heartily disliked. Kipling criticism comes down to us in three essentially parallel (and too often mutually exclusive) traditions, traditions represented by Buchanan's attack, Besant's defense, and Dobrée's analysis, and it is precisely the exclusiveness of these traditions which makes a consensus on Kipling so difficult to achieve. - Introduction
