His poetry can't really be separated from his prose. Stories are often prefaced by poems and it's difficult to know which triggered the other. The poems are in an amazing variety of styles and metres and perhaps it's his facility which gives rise to this bluff image. However the very control gives the best poems, such as "Danny Deever", a force of ballad-like simp[licity which a more heart-on-sleeve poet could never achieve.
He lost both his children before their time - his daughter in childhood and his son during the First World War. Kipling felt an abiding sense of shame and remorse for being part of the generation that sent their children to their deaths, and his War Poems, for me, are both the best of his work and the best of their kind. Not only to their deaths, but also to their living hells when shell-shocked veterans returned to a shabby peace:

A dream that is never done.
I watch a man go out of his mind
And he is My Mother's Son.Read more ›
