Bloom puts on the list the following by Kipling:
_Puck of Pook's Hill_
If this refers to Bloom's book "Stories and Poems for Extremely
Intelligent Children of All Ages", one has to wonder if Bloom ever
actually read all of Kilping's verse - or if, in fact, the "Complete
Verse" (whatever that is, whenever published) does not contain ALL of
Kipling's verse. I give you as an example of "not really suitable for
children" the poem "Mary, pity women" found in "Barrack Room Ballads".
There are others, but to cite them I would have to go and get my copy.
[Interesting note - my copy was given to my father, because it was
considered a suitable gift for returning servicemen after WW I.]
Besides which, much of Kipling's verse would simply be unintelligle to
