Barrack-room ballads and other verses by Rudyard Kipling ( Book )
6 editions published between 1892 and 1899 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Barrack-Room Ballads (1892) brought Rudyard Kipling instant success. At the time, British men generally enlisted to escape dire poverty, and those who did were held in low regard by the Victorian public--until they were needed to fight. Because Kipling had great compassion for his country's soldiers, he used his poems to provide an insightful, sympatheic view of them even as he criticized the English empire for its treatment of its fighting men. Told in Cockney dialect, the works in this collection include Tommy, Danny Deever, Fuzzy-Wuzzy, Mandalay, and the immortal Gunga Din. --New American Library
