SI, IF, DE RUDYARD KIPLING
If – by Rudyard Kipling
He was born in India, which inspired much of his work. He is seen as an innovator in the art of the short story. Kipling in the late 19th and early 20th centuries was among the United Kingdom's most popular writers  Henry James said, "Kipling strikes me personally as the most complete man of genius, as distinct from fine intelligence, that I have ever known. Kipling's subsequent reputation has changed with the political and social climate of the age. But as the age of the European empires recedes, he is recognised as an incomparable, if controversial, interpreter of how empire was experienced. That, and an increasing recognition of his extraordinary narrative gifts, make him a force to be reckoned with.

"If" by Rudyard Kipling (BEST VERSION) Inspirational Video - Read by Martin Clifton (British Accent)
It is a literary example of Victorian-era stoicism. In his posthumously published autobiography, Something of Myself , Kipling said that, in writing the poem, he was inspired by the character of Leander Starr Jameson ,  leader of the failed Jameson Raid against the Transvaal Republic to overthrow the Boer Government of Paul Kruger. As an evocation of Victorian-era stoicism—the " stiff upper lip " self-discipline, which popular culture rendered into a British national virtue and character trait, "If—" remains a cultural touchstone. Eliot included the poem in his collection A Choice of Kipling's Verse. In India, a framed copy of the poem was affixed to the wall before the study desk in the cabins of the officer cadets at the National Defence Academy at Pune , and Indian Naval Academy at Ezhimala. The Education Department wrote to the publishers and offered to pay a "reasonable fee".
