        The Cambridge History of English Literature (), in its three volumes (XII‑XIV) devoted to the nineteenth century, excludes Kipling. He is mentioned in volume XIV only once, in the context of South African poetry, and only as an introduction to Herbert Warren’s discussion of South African poet Thomas Pringle (‑), who later became a friend of Sir Walter Scott and editor of. It’s easy to imagine “If—” as a great modernist title. Terse, mysterious, hesitant, it could have introduced a Williams fragment full of precarious gaps and leaps, or an Auden riff on the As You Like It line about evasive speech: “Much virtue in If.” Instead the title belongs to Rudyard Kipling, to the year , and to a didactic poem that remains a classic of righteous certitude.

      Republished to coincide with the new ITV film, My Boy Jack? starring Daniel Radcliffe, this is the full account of the tragic life of John 'Jack' Kipling. On 27th September John Kipling, the only son of Britain's best loved poet, disappeared during the Battle of Loos. The body lay undiscovered. Rudyard Kipling is one of the best-known of the late Victorian poets and story-tellers. Although he was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in , his political views, which grew more toxic as he aged, have long made him critically unpopular. In the New Yorker, Charles McGrath remarked “Kipling has been variously labelled a colonialist, a jingoist, a racist, an anti-Semite, a misogynist.

        Despite the enduring popularity of poems such as 'If' (often voted the nation's favourite), some critics have denounced Rudyard Kipling's writings for the racist and imperialist attitudes they convey. However, in a new journal article, Roisin McCloskey contends that Kim, his novel about the "great game" in India, offers a more nuanced response to the British. Rudyard Kipling [] was born in Bombay on December 30th, son of John Lockwood Kipling, an artist and teacher of architectural sculpture and his wife Alice. His mother was one of the talented and beautiful Macdonald sisters, four of whom married remarkable men: Sir Edward Burne-Jones, Sir Edward Poynter, Alfred Baldwin and John Lockwood.
