Summary:
This anthology contains many of Kipling's most famous poems, including "If," "Mandalay," and "Gunga Din." Though sometimes still regarded as a product of the colonial era, Kipling touches a very popular nerve in Britain's literary tradition, and is regarded more generously now as a master of popular verse. It is often forgotten that he won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1907.
