By examining two of Rudyard Kipling's novels, "Kim" and "Plain Tales", the author of the paper shows how Kipling's dual theme of imperialism, yet strong portrayal and seemingly contradictory love and fascination of India are exposed in his works.
From the Paper:"In Lispeth, the first of the short stories in The Plain Tales, the principal character is the daughter of natives, who gets baptized as a Christian by her parents in order to gain protection from the missionaries. Though Lispeth was a Hill girl, she was fair and very lovely and with her English habits and name was not fully accepted by either the natives or the British. Again, one sees here Kipling's tendency to weave a story of Colonial England's intermingling with native India with a thread of imperialism nevertheless present. "
