Where do the ballads of Robert service stand in the realms of Balladry.

The Cremation of Sam McGee - Johnny Cash

Are they considered as unworthy works as a bored but talented scotsman trying to make a bob or two, or the subsequent barrack room ballads which were recited by servicemen in messes and barrack rooms for centuries to relieve the tedium particularly in the days of national service in the years before the juke box.

Are music hall monologues considered ballads or possibly mere unworthy trash.

How are the works of J Milton Hayes and Rudyard Kipling regarded in terms of ballads.

Im interested to see current views on the subject
