A song of the English by Rudyard Kipling( Book )

29 editions published between 1900 and 2011 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work of Rudyard Kipling will forever be associated with an era in which the sun never set on the British Empire; even George Orwell once noted that Kipling was a "prophet of British imperialism." In Kipling's A Song of the English, the experience of British imperialism is hauntingly related through a series of poems on English seafarers, the casualties of imperialist expansion, and the exotic and far-flung capitals of the British Empire. With stunning illustrations by prominent turn-of-the-century illustrator W. Heath Robinson, this 1909 volume provides a poignant glimpse at this bygone period of history
