Lost Rudyard Kipling poems published (BBC)

More than 50 unpublished poems by Rudyard Kipling have been discovered by a US scholar.

Thomas Pinney found the manuscripts in a number of places including a Manhattan House that was being renovated and among the papers of a former head of the Cunard Line.

Pinney described it as a "tremendously exciting time for scholars and fans".

The poems will be published alongside 1,300 others in the first ever complete edition of Kipling's verse on 7 March.

The newly discovered poems include several from World War I, including one titled Never Again In Any Port, as well as notes from a journal the writer kept on a tour of the war graves of Belgium and France in 1924.

2. I am a fan.

The quality of the writing makes me regard his prejudices in an historical perspective.
He was who he was;
He lived where and when he lived.

His descriptive prose is spectacular.

Read "Letting in the Jungle" and the poem "Mowgli's Song Against People"
