RUDYARD KIPLING - AUTOGRAPH POST CARD SIGNED 09/29/1897 - HFSID 153669

 

RUDYARD KIPLING
Kipling responds to a question regarding the copyright on "Recessional" in 1897
Autograph Postcard Signed: "Rudyard Kipling", 4¾x3 postcard. No place, no date, but postmarked Brighton, 1897 September 29. Addressed by Kipling on verso to: "F.J. Cross/58 Wood Vale/London/S.E." In full: "Replying yrs 27th - there is no copyright on 'Recessional' and same can be printed or reproduced by any one who cares to." Rudyard Kipling, born in India, expressed his concern for Britain's precarious position as a world power in three noted poems: Recessional, The White Man's Burden and If. Recessional, first published in 1897, the year of this letter, used Biblical references to show that Britain had become "drunk with the sight of power" and the country's need to remember the "Judge of Nations". The poem moved T.S. Eliot to call Kipling the greatest hymn writer, but also caused considerable controversy among critics, who called Kipling an imperialist. That same year, Kipling's Captains Courageous was published. His other noted works include the Jungle Book (1894), Kim (1901) and Just So Stories for Little Children (1902) and the poem Gunga Din. In 1907, Kipling became the first Englishman to win the Nobel Prize for Literature. Soiled. Stained at blank areas. Light vertical crease does not touch signature. Verso shows paper loss from removal of stamp and is lightly soiled and creased.
