Kipling's Academic Honours




[October 26th 2009]

Kipling turned down the offer of various honours, including a knighthood, and declined to become Poet Laureate, although he accepted the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907, election to the Athenaeum, and numerous academic honours. To his regret, he had never attended a university as a student.
