Recessional

Rudyard Kipling

1897

Introduction

Rudyard Kipling's Recessional stands as a milestone in the famous Anglo-Indian author's career. Written at the turn of the twentieth century in celebration of Queen Victoria's diamond jubilee, Recessional represents the peak of both Kipling's career and the global imperialism of the British Empire he adored. Stricken with controversy since its publication in 1897, Recessional is arguably the best-known English poem written from the turn of the twentieth century, and its publication placed Kipling in the same canonical field of British poets as William Shakespeare, John Milton, and William Wordsworth. Glorifications of both the monarchy and the imperialistic politics of the era, Kipling's poetry is cherished by some and loathed by others. But the fame of the Anglo-Indian author cannot be denied. His words were published and read almost as fast as he could write them. The poem can be found in Kipling: Poems, published in 2007.

Author Biography

Kipling was born in the Indian city of Bombay (now called Mumbai) on December 30, 1865. Lockwood Kipling and Alice Macdonald, Kipling's parents, were English born but had traveled to India to teach years before the birth of their children. Lockwood was the principal of the Jeejeebyhoy School of Art, where he was employed to teach and encourage the production of Indian art. Kipling lived the first six years of his life in Bombay, spending most of his time with the Indian servants in the household. The common practice in Anglo-Indian households during the nineteenth century was to send children back to England to be educated, and the same happened with young Kipling. He and his sister were sent to board with the widow of a sea captain near Portsmouth, where unfortunately he was physically abused by the woman and her son. When he was sent to England, the six-year old Kipling spoke Hindustani more fluently than English; ten years later, at the age of sixteen, Kipling returned to India speaking only English.

From 1878 to 1882, Kipling attended the United Services College, Westward Ho!, in Devon, England. This was a boarding school for the sons of army officers and civil servants
