Kipling: The Glass, the Shadow and the Fire



by Phoebe Adams
by Philip Mason. Harper & Row, $8.95. Mr. Mason sets out to prove that there was much more to Kipling than jingoist drum-banging. He succeeds, which will come as no surprise to Kipling addicts - for whom the work is not intended. This study is designed for readers who have been scared off Kipling by scornful critics, and thereby missed some good reading.
