Description

Joseph Rudyard Kipling (30 December 1865 – 18 January 1936) was a British author and poet best known for his works of fiction, many short stories, and his poems. He is regarded as a major "innovator in the art of the short story";his children's books are enduring classics of children's literature; and his best works speak to a versatile and luminous narrative gift.

The Man Who Would Be King is about a British journalist in India—Kipling himself, in name only. While on a tour of some Indian native states, he meets two scruffy adventurers, Daniel Dravot and Peachey Carnehan. He rather likes them, but then stops them from blackmailing a minor rajah. A few months later, they appear at his office in Lahore. They tell him their plan. They have been "Soldier, sailor, compositor [typesetter], photographer... [railroad] engine-drivers, petty contractors, " and more, and have decided India is not big enough for them. The next day they will go off to Kafiristan, to set themselves up as kings. Dravot can pass as a native, and they have twenty Martini-Henry rifles (then perhaps the best in the world). They plan to find a king or chief, help him defeat his enemies, then take over for themselves. They ask the narrator for the use of any books or maps of the area—as a favor, because they are fellow Freemasons, and because he spoiled their blackmail scheme.
