Kipling’s Poems

Including the juvenilia and unpublished poems written in England and India, researched in the 1980s by Andrew Rutherford, and now included in the comprehensive Cambridge Edition of 2013 edited by Thomas Pinney. For the published verse we have relied on the Definitive Edition (1940), and for the early unpublished verse on Rutherford (1986). We have not included various verse fragments and later uncollected poems written after 1889, which are to be found in Pinney, nor have we tracked variations between Pinney’s authoritative text and earlier editions.
