I’ve never “Kippled” either. My knowledge of Kipling is embarrassingly limited to the Jungle Book. I confess my ignorance about books such as “Kim” (the plot outline has me intrigued since I often mentioned The Great Game here) & even “Just so” but especially the poem ”White Man’s Burden”. I’ve just spent the last half hour reading reviews and back & forth criticisms of the poem and the poet himself. Thanks for opening up a new interesting topic for me.
