A Sussex Kipling: An Anthology of Poetry and Prose, edited by David Arscott, published 27 April 2007 (164 pp., Pomegranate Press, ISBN-10: 095489751X & ISBN-13: 9780954897512) accessible at: West Sussex Libraries & East Sussex Libraries
Abstract:
This is the first comprehensive anthology of Rudyard Kipling's prose and poetry for many years. It includes practically all his Sussex verse, several short stories, excerpts from his autobiography and a sprinkling of his amusing and idiosyncratic letters.
Kipling lived in Sussex for the greater part of his life, and this illustrated collection is saturated with a profound love of what he called "the most marvellous of all foreign countries that I have ever been in".
We first meet him in Rottingdean, and we follow his escapades as one of the country's pioneer motorists, but it is the Bateman's period which dominates. Here he created the writer's haven we can still visit today- immersing himself in the life of Sussex, telling its history through the children's stories of Puck of Pook's Hill and fashioning a potent literary myth from his study of the Sussex people and their colourful past.
