Man and Mason - Rudyard Kipling In our post-modern world, a man like Rudyard Kipling can't help but be viewed as a deeply ambiguous character. Unapologetically conservative and an avid booster of British imperialism, he nevertheless penned a broad volume of work that, in verse and prose, influenced millions during his lifetime and continues to entertain to this day.
Lesser known or appreciated by many readers, however, is Kipling's deep and heartfelt connection to Freemasonry - a tie which directly and indirectly played a part in some of his most famous writings. He notes about Kipling: "When you survey the whole of Kipling's writings, both fictional and factual, the number of Masonic references is extensive.

This period would be his most Masonically active; later, Kipling only infrequently visited lodges. But his time with Hope and Perseverance - a mixed lodge of British and Native Indians - left an indelible impression on the emerging author and, as Jaffa argues, helped shape Kipling's personal vision of the world.
Man and Mason - Rudyard Kipling offers a solid biographical survey together with some very interesting insights into how Freemasonry influenced Kipling as a man and a writer. Indeed, Jaffa spends much of the book identifying and discussing Masonic references in Kipling's individual works. This is essential reading for anyone serious about understanding Kipling and the Craft.
