A literary criticism of the book "The Light That Failed," by Rudyard Kipling is presented. Kipling used the world of contemporary painting and painters as a metaphor through which to criticize the literary world that he had encountered in London, England since he arrived there in 1889. The literary work is deemed as an expression of hesitant fascination with impressionism that was then gaining respect both in Paris, France and abroad.
