Kipling at Home (2)
Between 1911 and 1913 the verses and chapter-headings of Mr Kipling’s prose works were collected in Songs from Books1 and many of the short stories and verses written, which were later published in A Diversity of Creatures.2 While the suffragettes were very active, Mr Kipling drafted his verses ‘The Female of the Species’.3 The suffragettes, as a body, objected to Mr Kipling’s view on votes for women, and threats to burn down Bateman’s reached him, but he quietly ignored them and pursued his own policy.
