The Rudyard Kipling Society of EstoniaThe Rudyard Kipling Society of Estonia
“Oh, East is East and West is West, and never the twain shall meet” lamented Rudyard Kipling of the seemingly insurmountable gulf of understanding between the British and the inhabitants of the Indian subcontinent during his day. However, in Estonia, one of the many places often described as where East meets West, a new Kipling society aims to address at least a literary divide between compass points.

The Rudyard Kipling Society of Estonia is currently in formation. It is hoped that the society will be able to both foster new interest in Kipling and open up hitherto unexplored avenues of scholarly research. Whilst the principal focus will be on the life and writings of Rudyard Kipling, the society will also have a Comparative Literature characteristic to it. This is partly due to the international nature of the membership and to encourage a diverse approach towards Kipling and his works. Therefore, anyone interested in becoming a member or supporting the society upon a road not yet taken
is welcome to join.
