Abstract

This article examines Rudyard Kipling and Wolcott Balestier's neglected co-written novel, "The Naulahka: a Story of West and East" (1891-2) by looking at the issue of rightful ownership within the text, and outside it. Written during the passage of the first Anglo-American literary copyright law, the 1891 Act, and in the wake of the widespread unauthorised publication of Kipling's writings in America, "The Naulahka" is itself a parable of rightful ownership.
