Cydney Tinsley World at War Week 2, Day 4: Richard Kipling Richard Kipling/WWI Poetry 1. Richard Kipling a. Believed in ‘old-fashioned manliness’. He believed that the world’s men were going ‘soft’. b. At the age of 18, Kipling’s son, John, was sent off to war. He was never found (although now it is believed they have found his grave). c. Kipling wrote propaganda for the war. d. When his son went missing, Richard Kipling wrote the poem, “My Boy Jack” in 1915, most likely as a tribute to his son. e. Kipling came up with the term for Unidentified Soldiers and pushed for the all soldiers, regardless of rank, to have the same graves. 2. WWI Poetry a. Poetry was very common in WWI. There were different topics, but the most popular were about pre-war and during-war things. b. Poetry was utilized more than painting or other mediums, most likely because of the extremely literate culture. Other factors include it was easier to produce and was considered an ‘eloquent’ medium. 3. Total War a. Total war is when all of a country’s resources are being put into the war; ie, factors switch to making ammunition, construction moves from buildings to transportation, all the food that can be spared without starving out the population is being sent to the soldiers, etc. 4. Women a. Women began to be included in the workforce and started earning wages. Children were also increasing. b. In most countries, women gained the right to vote during the final stages of or early-post World War I.
