Abstract:
This thesis provides a synthesizing account of Kipling as an 'amphibian' writer concerned both with the creation of prose works of great aesthetic sophistication and complexity, and of propagandistic writing whose principal objective was the ftirtherance of a particular imperial doctrine. Through a succession of close readings I demonstrate how these two kinds of Kipling text are both distinguished and connected by their formal operation, with the more aesthetically complex work often deploying similar narrative strategies to the propagandistic texts, but in ways that are far more complex and ambiguous.
