I have loved Kipling's work from the time Icwas introduced to Mowgli and his Brothers as a 6th grader. (Thank you Mrs. Thompson.). He truly understood people and Zi can see. Particularly in his poetry, the connection to the English Misic Hall tradition. His short stories are truly the work of a master craftsman.
