About the Author
Jonathan Swift (30 November 1667 – 19 October 1745) was an Anglo-Irish satirist, essayist, political pamphleteer (first for Whigs then for the Tories), poet and cleric who became Dean of St. Patrick's, Dublin.
He is remembered for works such as Gulliver's Travels, A Modest Proposal, A Journal to Stella, Drapier's Letters, The Battle of the Books, An Argument Against Abolishing Christianity, and A Tale of a Tub. Swift is probably the foremost prose satirist in the English language, and is less well known for his poetry. Swift originally published all of his works under pseudonyms ― such as Lemuel Gulliver, Isaac Bickerstaff, M.B. Drapier ― or anonymously. He is also known for being a master of two styles of satire: the Horatian and Juvenalian styles.
John Griffith London was an American novelist, journalist, and social activist. A pioneer in the world of commercial magazine fiction, he was one of the first writers to become a worldwide celebrity and earn a large fortune from writing.
Rudyard Kipling (1865–1936) was an English author best known for fables set in the Indian jungles, including the tales in The Jungle Book. Much of the imagery in Kipling’s work draws on his early years in India.
After his education in England, Kipling returned to India, where he penned dozens of stories and poems for magazines while working at a daily newspaper in Lahore. He later traveled throughout the United States, landing in a secluded Vermont town where he produced two Jungle Book collections, the novel Captains Courageous, and a poetry collection, Barrack-Room Ballads, which contained his famous poems “Mandalay” and “Gunga Din.”
Kipling was recognized as an innovator of the short-story form, and his children’s books were popular in their time and remain so today. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907.
Howard Pyle was born in Wilmington, Delaware in 1853. Having studied painting at the Drexel Institute in Philadelphia, he was one of the most influential illustrators of his time, known for his imagination and detail. He also taught painting and wrote many stories for young people, illustrating his own works. He died in 1911.
Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) was a Scottish novelist, poet, and essayist. His most popular works include Treasure Island, A Child’s Garden of Verses, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and Kidnapped.
