Abstract

In this 1909 lecture, E.M. Forster develops a critique of Kipling, alternately praising and criticizing the Nobel Laureate's political agenda as well as his aesthetic vision. This lecture is extremely valuable in that it gives us insight into an early critique of Kipling thepoet and Kipling the man, but it is also valuable insofar as it sheds light on Forster's method and approach to interpreting poetry as a literary andpolitical critic.
