The City of Evil Countenances
‘The City of Evil Countenances’ was written at the end of Kipling’s first sojourn in Peshawar, as a personal response to the experiences more formally treated in the special reports that he was sending to Lahore. In his diary for 28 March 1885 Kipling notes: ‘Wrote the City of Evil Countenances and saw that it was good’.
