Kipling (LIT2192.01)

Brooke Allen

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was the most popular poet and fiction writer of the late Victorian era. He is nowadays, in many circles, the most reviled, perceived as embodying the very spirit of British imperialism. In this class we will explore Kipling’s poetry, short stories, and a couple of longer books (probably ‘Kim’) in some depth, attempting to draw our own conclusions about his literary gifts and his place in the British canon.

This course will be offered the first seven weeks of term.
