POETRY & POETS: FROM C 1900 -. This is a fully revised and meticulously researched edition of "Kipling's Complete Work" with an authoritative introduction from M.M. Kaye. When Kipling died in 1936 he was considered second to none as a poet. Years before, Tennyson had described 'young Kipling' as the 'only one with divine fire'; but in fact Kipling died in relative anonymity, his death overshadowed by that of George V and his reputation dented by a Britain that saw him as outdated and imperialist. Kipling's poetry throughout the 756 pages of this edition captivates the reader, as varied as it is beautiful, bringing us characters such as Gunga Din, Judy O'Grady and the Colonel's Lady who have become enshrined in literature. Very often the most powerful and evocative poems are the most personal and humane; together they form a compelling and deeply moving portrait of this poet.
