American scholar finds 50 unseen Rudyard Kipling poems2/26/2013
Thomas Pinney, emeritus professor of English at the University of California, has discovered 50 unseen poems by Rudyard Kipling. Pinney found the works of the English "Jungle Book" author hidden in family papers and a Manhattan home that was being renovated. Several of the poems to be published next month date from the First World War, including these lines: "This was a Godlike soul before it was crazed/No matter. The grave makes whole." Another poem gripes about inane questions from the media, "Why don't you write a play — /Why don't you cut your hair?/Do you trim your toe-nails round/Or do you trim them square?" [Source]
