His poetry is striking for its many rhythms and popular forms of speech, and Kipling was equally at home with dramatic monologues and extended ballads. He is often thought of as glorifying war, militarism, and the British Empire, but an attentive reading of the poems does not confirm that view. This edition has the endorsement of the Kipling Society, of which the writer of the Introduction, Dr Lizzy Welby, is a Council Member.
