Debits and Credits is a collection of fourteen stories, nineteen poems and two scenes from a play by Rudyard Kipling. The collection was first published in 1926. Four of the poems are translations of odes by Horace. Rudyard Kipling (30 December 1865 – 18 January 1936) was an English poet, short-story writer, and novelist chiefly remembered for his celebration of British imperialism, tales and poems of British soldiers in India, and his tales for children. Kipling received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907. He was born in Bombay, in the Bombay Presidency of British India, and was taken by his family to England when he was five years old. Kipling is best known for his works of fiction, including The Jungle Book (1894) (a collection of stories which includes “Rikki-Tikki-Tavi”), Kim (1901) (a tale of adventure), many short stories, including “The Man Who Would Be King” (1888); and his poems, including Mandalay (1890), Gunga Din (1890), The White Man’s Burden (1899) and If? (1910). 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 are said to exhibit a versatile and luminous narrative gift.
