Joseph Rudyard Kipling (/ˈrʌdjərd/ RUD-yərd; 30 December 1865 – 18 January 1936) was an English journalist, short-story writer, poet, and novelist. He was born in India, which inspired much of his work

Joseph Rudyard Kipling (/ˈrʌdjərd/ RUD-yərd; 30 December 1865 – 18 January 1936) was an English journalist, short-story writer, poet, and novelist. He was born in India, which inspired much of his work. Kipling's works of fiction include The Jungle Book (1894), Kim (1901), and many short stories, including "The Man Who Would Be King" (1888). His poems include "Mandalay" (1890), "Gunga Din" (1890), "The Gods of the Copybook Headings" (1919), "The White Man's Burden" (1899), and "If-" (1910).

Rudyard Joseph Kipling was born in Bombay in 1865. His father, John Lockwood Kipling, was the author and illustrator of Beast and Man in India, and his mother, Alice, was the sister of Lady Burne-Jones. In 1871 Kipling was brought home from India and spent five unhappy years with a foster family in Southsea, an experience he later drew on in The Light that Failed (1891). The years he spent at the United Services College, a school for officers’ children, are depicted in Stalky & Co. (1899) and the character of Beetle is something of a self-portrait.

Kipling’s most distinctive gift was for ballads and narrative poems in which he drew vivid characters in universal situations, articulating profound truths in plain . Rewards and Fairies is a historical fantasy book by Rudyard Kipling.

Rudyard Kipling is one of the best-known of the late Victorian poets and story-tellers

Rudyard Kipling is one of the best-known of the late Victorian poets and story-tellers. In Something of Myself, Kipling traced the origins of these stories to a book he had read when he was young about a lion-hunter in South Africa who fell among lions who were all Freemasons, and with them entered into a confederacy against some wicked baboons. Martin Seymour-Smith, writing in Rudyard Kipling: A Biography, identifies another of the major sources as the Jataka tales of India. Some of these fables go back as early as the fourth century BC and incorporate material of even earlier eras.

... Collections of Kipling's poems have been published many times over the years, but many of them were not complete. This collection includes many not found elsewhere. Many of his poems are about the British Army or the British Empire, but there are also poems on other topics. Some of Kipling's poems are better known than others, e.g., "Gunga Din." A few have been set to music, e.g., "Mandalay" and "Gentlemen-Rankers." In some cases, particular lines are well known such as, "Oh, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet (from "The Ballad of East and West") or "the Colonel's Lady and Judy O'Grady are sisters under their skins" (from "The Ladies). Some of the poems were concerned with the poor treatment of British soldiers for whom Kipling was a champion, including "Shillin' a Day," "Back to the Army Again," "The Last of the Light Brigade," and "Tommy" ("I went into a public 'ouse to get a pint of beer, the publican 'e up an' sez, 'we serve no redcoats here' ").
Overall, it is a good, wide-ranging collection of poetry covering an extended time period. The collection is recommended for all age groups, although some poems might have to be explained to children. The poems were written at a different time in history, and readers should be aware that some of them may express prejudices and language of that period ("for she knifed me one night, 'cause I wished she was white, and I learned about women from 'er," from "The Ladies")

Perhaps the ultimate "anti-snobbery" poetry. I say "addicting" because, if you read a bit of these 800 pages every day, you may find yourself saying, "one more... one more...just one more" before you can bring yourself to wedge in a bookmark to savor more poems tomorrow. Sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, often poignant, these masterful rhythm/rhymes convey the ironies & realities of life, love, lust, political favoritism, courage, spirituality, etc. in a raw, direct manner. If you need an "inner voice accent" to enhance enjoyment of these poems (though I don't think it's necessary) think Michael Caine's voice in that wonderful film "The Man Who Would Be King." No doubt about it, Kipling was cool.

Too much information. I need to buy Departmental Ditties and Barrack Room Ballads (again) and use this as a repository of his other verse.
