“the sheer vigour, conviction and humanity – touchingly communicated by the stellar cast – still have the power to stir the blood.”
Sunday Times 6/7/97

“a treat for anyone who loves words and poetry”
Oxford Times 18/4/97

From the Back Cover:

There is in the eminently quotable lines of Kipling's poetry a varying shimmer of greatness. His poems convey strong emotions of bitterness, humanity and sentiment. They are poems of kinship with humankind, of nobility, of reflected glory and the futilities of our own time.
