    The poet Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) is easily one of the most popular writers of the late-Victorian period. He also wrote several children's stories. In 1907, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature. (More about Kipling here: ) The poem If has so much to say about himself, and it presents his approach to life.

    To say the least, the poem is very encouraging. The persona who speaks is consoling his son for when things do not go according to plan, or when people do not think and act the way he does. The persona means to say that for so long as the son does his best and what he thinks is good and right, then all things shall be well. Life, after all, is more about how one finds meaning, both in joy and sorrow, in "Triumph and Disaster." All efforts may go to waste, all people might hate and reject, what matters most is to keep going.

    The poem ends with the words: "Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it, / And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!" It is as if the poet is saying that for so long as the reader endures the challenges of life, to him or her belongs life. Everything that he or she has gained from experience shall not be taken away. Life, then, according to Kipling, is something to be embraced.
