    1,478 words
    Rudyard Kipling is remembered today mostly as a children's author. Kipling's poetry and adult fiction are both worth serious examination; "The Light That Failed" is probably the most important of his adult novels, in which he apparently makes the clearest statements of his beliefs about art and the purpose of life.
