dc.description.abstractThis essay by and large revises the historically acknowledged notion that Kipling is an Indian-influenced author as postcolonial reassessments of Kipling's oeuvre have tended to focus primarily on Kipling’s relationship with the British Empire and India. In drawing on Intertextuality, Historicism, Said’s Orientalism, and Bhabha’s ambivalence, the essay analyzes Kipling’s poem in terms of its historical context, textual relationships with an Arabic narrative, and Kipling’s Orientalism. On the whole, this essay examines Kipling’s appropriation of a narrative from The Arabian Nights. The essay sheds light on Kipling’s preoccupation with an Arabic text– a preoccupation that can be interpreted as symptomatic of Kipling’s textual, ambivalent Orientalism. The Arabic narrative of the City of Brass, which enriches Kipling’s poem lexically and thematically, seems to be Kipling’s palimpsest upon which he writes his poem. Kipling’s drawing on the Arabic story by copying the title and the epigraph uncovers an unnoticed (not merely textual) relationship between Edward Lane (whose Orientalism is typical of Kipling’s “The White Man’s Burden”) and Kipling. This textual mixture between a postcolonial poem and a colonized narrative offers deep insights into Kipling’s ambivalence toward his White Men, who have been responsible for making Great Britain similar to the City of Brass in the original narrative.es_ES
