A young woman marries an older man and arrives at his house, only to find that his dead wife is still there… A picture in a tower depicts a dangerous woman… A dead man walks through a house every night because sometimes the dead do come back… Stories about ghosts and suspense. What can be better? Especially when these stories come from Victorian writers and Rudyard Kipling himself. Kipling's bibliography includes fiction, non-fiction, and poetry, and several of his works were collaborations, like The Room in the Tower and Other Ghost Stories. Rudyard Kipling, author and poet, is one of the most interesting and significant literary figures of the late 19th and early 20th-centuries. He was not English but, in terms of the time, Anglo-Indian, being born in Bombay to English parents. His use of the short story form, always technically sophisticated, showed sustained formal innovation during the 1900s. Kipling’s poems and stories were extraordinarily popular in the late 19th and early 20th century, but after World War I his reputation as a serious writer suffered through his being widely viewed as a jingoistic imperialist. Kipling kept writing until the early 1930s, but at a slower pace and with much less success than before. On the night of 12 January 1936, he suffered a haemorrhage in his small intestine. He underwent surgery but died less than a week later on 18 January 1936, at the age of 70. Enjoy free online English audiobook “The Room in the Tower and Other Ghost Stories” by Rudyard Kipling.
