In 1907, at the age of 42, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.

I love Kipling's verse. On the one hand it is stirring imperial stuff, but reading carefully he is surprisingly ahead of his time in some of his social thinking.

I'm sure it's very petty of me and that I'm missing the point as usual, but I can hardly ever get past the rum-titty-tum rhythms of Kipling's verse. That combined with the tiresome cockneyisms makes everything sounds like a music hall song. And while I like a good old knees up as much as anyone, I don't particularly want to sit down and read the lyrics to "Boiled Beef and Carrots".
