By The Book: Bibliography - Rudyard Kipling

From The Jungle Book and Just So Stories, to The White Man's Burden, Rudyard Kipling's literary legacy is a complicated one. While his skill as a writer and storyteller is widely agreed upon, his love of empire and conservative politics makes him an interesting figure to discuss in the post-colonial context. In this episode of Bibliography, we dive into the life and times of Rudyard Kipling, and the events that shaped his worldview and writings. And then in Footnotes, we discuss our favourite adaptations of Kipling's work.
