KIPLING may be best known as a commentator on the British Empire, but he was also a keen observer and chronicler of the sea – and ships and all those who sailed in them.For him, the sea was the glue that connected the British EmpireTo reach distant lands, you need to navigateWhile Kipling has written extensively on his own travels – in India, across the Pacific and the Atlantic, to South Africa and Australia – and on the travels of others.Marines were notably heroes of his friends, like adventurers who braved all types of elements and danger in order to arrive at distant lands.Written about them, he was fascinated by the romanticism of the sea, touching everything from pirates to technical modifications on board ships.His production reflects his deep historical understanding, so he could also write about three sailors remembering their shipwreck of St Paul off Malta in 66ad and a ship on fire in the Indian Ocean.He was also a great defender of the navy.He has written his customs, exploits, history and contemporary role in a variety of different forms.At all stages of his life Kipling truffled his many letters with observations on the sea, including his own voyages and other nautical interests.Under the guidance and with a commentary by Kipling expert and author of the highly praised Kipling abroad, Kipling and the sea illuminates a side of Kipling’s work that has stagnated in the shadows for too long.
