Stories and Poems

‘Hear and attend and listen...’ Rudyard Kipling is a supreme master of the short story in English and a poet of brilliant gifts. This generous selection of stories and poems, first published in the acclaimed Oxford Authors series, covers the full range of Kipling’s career from the youthful volumes that brought him fame as the chronicler of British India, to the bittersweet fruits of age and bereavement in the aftermath of the First World War. It includes stories such as ‘The Man who would be King’, ‘Mrs Bathurst’, and ‘Mary Postgate’, and poems from Barrack-Room Ballads and other collections.
