The Day's Work

The Day's Work

by Rudyard Kipling (Author)

Rudyard Kipling collected the short stories he had published in various magazines in the mid-1890s into "The Day’s Work", published in 1898.

In "The Day's Work", Kipling uses a series of short stories to examine labour and employment in a variety of different industries, be it shipping, transport or bridge building. The result is a masterly collection of writings dealing with such eternal themes as family dependency, obedience to command, and loyalty against all the odds.

Some of the stories include: "A Walking Delegate," "The Bridge-Builders," "The Tomb of His Ancestors," and "William the Conquerer," among others.
