Publisher's Summary

This anthology of Kipling's most famous poems - including "If", "Mandalay", "Gunga Din" - is taken from Naxos AudioBooks' Great Poets series. 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.

Lest We Forget - Kipling.

I sit with moist eyes. The fashionable world looks down its nose and Kipling cares not a jot, but warns us in poem after poem that this is how the world is. Put aside all preconceptions and open your heart to a mind that can see deeper into our reality from his time than any contemporary.
Exquisitely read; deeply moving. Shockingly current!

Every student should be given this audiobook

Wonderful insights into people and life in general. My only complaint is it didn't include Stranger In My Gate

  • Overall
    4 out of 5 stars

Intense, wild, fiery narrative

The work is great, with the exception of one poem which was a bit disturbing and sounded like an angry tirade. Perhaps it was meant to but it was quite unpleasant. The other work is as my title describes.

My blind date with Kipling

You simply don't know what you are buying, because on the site of Audible there is no such a thing like the full list of poems. You also cannot choose which one of them you want to listen at a time because the anthology is not divided into the tracks. The matter concerns not only this audiobook but also others records of poetry.
