Joseph Rudyard Kipling irodalmi Nobel-díjas angol író és költő. Napjainkban leginkább gyermekeknek szóló műveiről ismert, melyek között leghíresebb a Dzsungel könyve .

Édesapja John Lockwood Kipling metodista lelkész, képzőművészeti iskolai tanár, illusztrátor, szobrász és festő volt, édesanyja Alice Macdonald . 6 éves koráig szüleivel Indiában élt. Tanulmányait Angliában folytatta, majd Indiában lett újságíró.

Bejárta szinte az egész világot. Amerikában 4 évet élt, Európában politikai szerepet is vállalt: lelkes híve volt az angol gyarmatbirodalomnak. Híres regénye továbbá a Kim is , melynek cselekménye Indiában játszódik, és meg is filmesítették. Mesegyűjteménye Az elefántkölyök címen jelent meg. Ha... című versét több magyar költő lefordította .

A novella művészetének egyik legnagyobb újítójaként tartják számon; gyermekeknek szóló művei a gyermekirodalom örökzöld klasszikusai; legjobb írásai kifinomult, sokoldalú és ragyogó elbeszélő tehetségét mutatják.A 19. század végén és a 20. század elején Kipling az egyik legnépszerűbb angol próza- és versíró volt. Henry James is csodálattal nyilatkozott zsenialitásáról. 1907-ben irodalmi Nobel-díjat kapott, az angol nyelven alkotó írók közül elsőként, és máig a legfiatalabbként. Többször felajánlották neki a lovagi címet, amit azonban ő mindig visszautasított.Később George Orwell a „brit imperializmus prófétájaként” emlegette Kiplinget. Sokan előítéletesként és militaristaként értelmezték munkáit, Douglas Kerr mai kritikus szerint Kipling még ma is indulatos vitákat kavar, és máig tisztázatlan, hová helyezzük el az irodalom- és kultúrtörténetben. Azonban mindenképp figyelemre méltó nemcsak kivételes elbeszélőtehetségének köszönhetően, hanem amiatt is, hogy műveiből hű képet kaphatunk arról, milyen lehetett a Brit Birodalomban élni.

With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And—which is more—you'll be a Man, my son!
