Kim (novel)

Kim is a novel by Nobel Prize-winning English author Rudyard Kipling. It was first published serially in McClure's Magazine from December 1900 to October 1901 as well as in Cassell's Magazine from January to November 1901, and first published in book form by Macmillan & Co. Ltd in October 1901. The story unfolds against the backdrop of The Great Game, the political conflict between Russia and Britain in Central Asia. It is set after the Second Afghan War which ended in 1881, but before the Third, probably in the period 1893 to 1898.

The novel is notable for its detailed portrait of the people, culture, and varied religions of India. "The book presents a vivid picture of India, its teeming populations, religions, and superstitions, and the life of the bazaars and the road."

In 1998, the Modern Library ranked Kim No. 78 on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century. In 2003 the book was listed on the BBC's The Big Read poll of the UK's "best-loved novel."

"Kim" was the first song the rapper recorded for the album, shortly after finishing work on The Slim Shady LP in late 1998. Eminem wrote this song, along with " '97 Bonnie & Clyde" (where Eminem and his daughter go to the lake to dispose of Kim's dead body), at a time when he and Kim were having marital problems and Kim was preventing him from seeing his daughter Hailie.

On the clean version of The Marshall Mathers LP, this song is replaced by a clean version of "The Kids" (an unedited version can be found on the CD single of " The Way I Am", the UK and deluxe editions of The Marshall Mathers LP).

Kim (given name)

Kim is a male or female given name. It is also used as a diminutive or nickname for names such as Kimberly, Kimberley, Kimball, Kimiko, or Joakim.

A notable use of the name was the fictional street urchin Kimball O'Hara in Rudyard Kipling's book Kim. From the early 1900s till the 1960s the name Kim was used in English-speaking countries mostly for boys because of the popularity of this book. Another use of the name in literature is in the opening of Edna Ferber's 1926 novel Show Boat. Magnolia, the female protagonist, names her baby daughter Kim because she was born at the moment when the Cotton Blossom show boat was at the convergence on the Mississippi and Ohio rivers where the states of Kentucky, Illinois and Missouri join giving the acronym KIM. In the 1936 film version of the musical Show Boat, Magnolia's father claims to have invented the name based on the same acronym. Magnolia's mother comments, "Kim, that ain't no name." Despite the popularity of the novel and musical, girls were seldom given the name until the 1960s, but it has since become more common for them than for males.

In Scandinavia Kim can be a diminutive/nickname for Joakim/ Joachim, but more often a male name in its own right.

In Russia Ким (Kim) is also a diminutive/nickname for Иоаким (Ioakim). In the early Soviet era, it was also explained as the acronym for Коммунистический Интернационал Молодёжи ( Young Communist International).
