I can hardly contain my excitement! Kipling. ALL of Kipling, in one edition. Cool

Tell someone you love them today, because life is short. But scream it at them in Esperanto, because life is also terrifying and confusing.

Now that is something I will splash out on. Kipling is one of the UKs finest writers and poets and I devour everything 19th century.

I think I'll pick it up in paper and digital formats too.

Hadn't thought on that, but yes - Dead tree and electronic versions both.
Really, I must have my Kipling.

Too bad they didn't find a sequel to "Rikki Tikki Tavi" ! Big smile

"If"
That's the pinnacle. One hopes that something equally epic has been found. Probably not - that's a hard challenge to meet, but one can hope.

But no more Chuck Jones to bring it to life. Sad

First, the over £3 million Staffordshire hoard.
Then, the remains of Richard III.
Now this literary find.

What long-missing British icon could be next? I'm hoping for this.

Proof that Christ's feet did indeed wander England's hills of green?

Don't forget the missing 40 minutes of footage cut by Stanley from "2001" after its Premiere found about 18 months ago.

Must find Excalibur! Smile

Very cool about the recovered Kipling works. He's an interesting character. He could be brutally honest in his writing, for a Victorian. Not all of it was Rule Britannia or quaint India expat tales.

That's the reason why he's the patron poet of soldiers. Well, him and Alan Seeger.

Kipling wrote:
When you're wounded and left on Afghanistan's plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier.
Go, go, go like a soldier,
Go, go, go like a soldier,
Go, go, go like a soldier,
So-oldier of the Queen!

Pretty blunt stuff for a Victorian.

Edit:
Hell, that's pretty blunt even for today.
