The Jungle Book and wild children

Here’s an interesting article on the new film of The Jungle Book, touching on themes of wolves, wild children, and the opposition of nature and culture much discussed at the Company of Wolves conference (and covered in the forthcoming book, which we’re working on now!). I think the statement that Kipling is an imperialist writer is too simplistic; he’s more complex than that.
