GUEST,Brian Grayson Kipling with the Tradition (51* d) RE: Kipling with the Tradition 23 Aug 11


More pontificating on the subject of Kipling's politics... Oh, dear.

The whole "why was Kipling so unfeelingly politically incorrect?" argument reminds me of Bowdler's re-writing of Shakespeare's plays to cut out the naughty bits: undoubtedly well-meaning, but pointless to us today. Just read the bloody poetry/prose and listen to the songs, guys - and get a life!

'Reactionary racist paternalistic imperialism'? Good grief!
