RUDYARD KIPLING Rudyard Kipling was born on December 30, 1865 in Bombay, India. He was educated in England but returned to India in 1882. In 1892, Kipling married Caroline Balestier and settled in Brattleboro, Vermont where he wrote The Jungle Book and "Gunga Din." Eventually becoming the highest paid writer in the world, Kipling was recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907.

He died in 1936. Historical Background Jan 7th 1892 - A massive mine explosion leaves nearly 100 dead in Krebs, Oklahoma

, on this day in 1892. The disaster, the worst mining catastrophe in Oklahoma's history, was mainly due to the mine owner's emphasis on profits over safety. The Osage Coal & Mining Company's No. 11 mine was notorious for its poor conditions. This led to a high turnover of workers, and the company routinely hired unskilled labor, providing little in the way of training to get them up to speed. This was true for even the most dangerous jobs, like handling explosives and munitions. In the early evening of January 7, several hundred workers were mining the No. 11 mine when an inexperienced worker accidentally set off a stash of explosives.

Approximately 100 miners were burned or buried in the explosion. Another 150 workers suffered serious injuries. Nearly every household in Krebs was directly affected by the tragedy. Summary 'The Widow at Windsor' is a poem written by the writer Rudyard Kipling. It was published in 1892, and the widow refers to Queen Victoria.

The poem illustrates how the Queen's soldiers strive to protect her kingdom. Analysis http://borderstianna.weebly.com/ literature.html
