Some New Poems by Rudyard Kipling
By Thomas Pinney, current Beinecke Visiting Fellow
Monday, October 26, 2009, 3:00 pm
Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, 121 Wall Street, Room 38
Free and open to the public
Mr. Pinney will read a selection of poems by Rudyard Kipling that have never been published, or, if published, never collected; he will provide an informal commentary on each poem.
Mr. Pinney received his PhD in English from Yale in 1960 and taught here for a year before going to Pomona College, Claremont, California, where he taught for the next 35 years. He is now retired and has returned to Yale on a Beinecke Visiting Fellowship for the month of October to work on a complete edition of the poems of Rudyard Kipling.
The exhibition gallery is closed while the library's building is under renovation.
