Although the present volume is divided into separate stories, in the mind of the author, they are part of a single narrative, a story of the psyche, it might be called, and its everenewed relationship with the world.

The purpose of this narrative is also to bring out, among the many experiences that are here described, what seems beautiful, clear and desirable.

This way of writing aspires to a condition such as that presented by Henry James in his recently republished essay dedicated to the story of Kipling entitled Soldiers Three. According to the American writer, Kipling understands that his telling stories offer countless occasions, the opportunity to touch life in a thosand different places, each of which is an example and an illustration of it.
