The great expansion of knowledge in recent years about the work of Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) from new sources of information has made it possible, for the first time, to produce a genuinely complete edition of his poems. To the poems collected by Kipling himself this edition adds more than 550 uncollected poems, some of them unpublished. Every authorized text of the collected poems, from original periodical publication to the final edition in the author's lifetime, has been collated to produce a full record of the author's additions, deletions and alterations. A note to each poem provides a record of publication and, where possible, information about its occasion and context. Through its completeness, its record of changes and its notes, the edition provides a new basis for the study and appreciation of Kipling's poetry.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Stripped of his historical baggage, Kipling re-emerges as England's Homer. These magisterial volumes remind us of his power.' A. A. Gill, Sunday Times
'The scholarly nature of the Cambridge Edition, with Professor Pinney's meticulous notes and mastery of the subject makes it the ideal tool for any consideration of Kipling's verse ... Pinney's magisterial collection will be of great value to scholars; but the lay reader will also find a host of old friends among its pages, and discover many more worth pursuing.' Juliet Townsend, Spectator
'A prodigious feat of scholarship that no individual could have accomplished alone ... Pinney's achievement remains remarkable ... magisterial volumes.' Richard Cronin, Review 19 (www.nbol-19.org)
'Pinney is a magisterial figure in Kipling scholarship ... The comprehensiveness of (this) edition rests on his intelligent thoroughness, his willingness to test received ideas, his grasp of the technical processes of publishing and printing in the period and his eye for detail. It is also a labour of love.' Times Literary Supplement
'A new three-volume edition of Kipling's poetry, meticulously edited by Thomas Pinney, is a major literary event, and an occasion to take a fresh look at Kipling's still controversial achievement ... The result is a general impression of seeing Kipling whole, with an opportunity to revisit and to revise previous assumptions about the man and his art.' The New Republic
