"Now this is the Law of the Jungle--as old and as true as the sky;
And the Wolf that shall keep it may prosper, but the Wolf that shall break it must die."
--from "The Law of the Jungle"
Kipling’s innovative experiments with language-especially the dialects of the ordinary soldier-won him many admirers, and still stand out as truly modern today. Among the famous poems featured here are “Mandalay,” “Gunga Din” “The Ballad of East and West,” and the beloved “If.”
