The Seven Seas
by Rudyard Kipling
Publisher: eBooks@Adelaide 2009
The Seven Seas is a bitter, disillusioned series of poems centred on Britain's role in colonialism and Empire building. With reverberating lyrics and powerful imagery, Kipling writes of the ruthless means that were often employed to add nations to the glorious Empire, and the subsequent effects upon these colonised nations. Though disturbing and unsettling in theme, Kipling's lyrical dexterity makes these poems strangely compelling reading.
