All of Kipling's well-known and well-loved poems like "Gunga Din" and "If" are here like old friends. So are the poems from all of his books and all previous collections. His most hated poems, his most imperialist and racist are here for anyone looking for an excuse to hate him. But here too are a number of truly great, insightful poems; many in the form of dramatic personae, which make it easy to understand why TS Eliot one of the greatest of modern poets, found so much to praise that he anthologized some of what he considered some of Kipling's best, adding his voice to the growing chorus demanding a reevaluation of his place in the history of British and world poetry.
The book contains 3 tales and 1 play written by Kipling: Toomai of Elephants; White Seal; Mowgli's Brothers; and Tiger, Tiger !
The animal friends of the boy raised by wolves escort him out of the jungle to keep him safe from the tiger who seeks to kill him.
