Topic: Rudyard Kipling.

Just started ploughing through some of his stuff.

Kim is a fucking ace book. How could be write that then the poem a white mans burden.

Cant wait to read his early stuff, when he was on opium. An interesting & contradictory person. My favourite quote so far.

The road was straight as a bar of polished steel into the city of the dreadful night".

I love that. Ace words

Re: Rudyard Kipling.

I have just realised he wrote all the words on the War Memorials.

Going to go on a pilgrimage to Bateman’s later this year. This bloke is right up there. I love how flawed he was & how human. What a life paid with the ultimate price.  Just gonna start on his biography.

Kim should be taught in schools
