Rudyard Kipling is not for everyone. He is a man of his time. As had been said by critics he is a fascist and discriminator to anyone who is not a white male, BUT there is no mistaking he ability to weave a story line, his ability to make a story come alive in your head, and that is why he is still a pertinent author today. His prose is delightful if taken from his angle and his terminology is unbounding. It's hard to find an author with the use of the American language that Kipling has. For history and literature, Kipling should be read.
