The power of self-confidence within the first four lines of the poem takes on an air equivalent to that of Socrates it his detachment from criticism: If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you, If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you But make …allowance for their doubting too, Here is the real measure of individuality and self-worth the power to reject bitterness in the face of other people's wrath. The overwhelming reference to "you" or "your" which is used seven times within these four lines really has the affect of breaking out of the poem and speaking to the reader directly. There is a Jesus-like forgiveness within the last line of forgiving your foes, it is a higher understanding of how the world works, it grasps at the truth of human nature and makes "allowance" at the folly of others, not for their sake, but for your own. Patience as a virtue and the correct way to speak and feel is of interest in the next four lines: If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about, don't deal in lies, Or being hated, don't give way to hating, And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise: Here patience is both taken as patience with others and with the world at large. True understanding is patience, and with dealing with others in the correct manner. The negativity of "hate" and "lying" are rejected absolutely by those who would seek to view the ways of the world from an open philosophic way of thinking. At the close of the poem the narrator warns though against the error of arrogance with such self-confidence and wisdom. It is hard to ignore the conservative message that is evident within the whole of the next stanza: If you can dream-and not make dreams your master, If you can think-and not make thoughts your aim; If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two impostors just the same; If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken Twisted :) @bieberspixies on twitter (MORE)

The very best way to get this or any other poem is by repeated close readings. Read it aloud, so that you can better hear the rhythms and sounds the poet creates. Look for the way some lines flow, some lines clash. Make certain you understand the meaning of each word. Even a word so small and common… as "if" is packed with meaning: it contains within it the uncertainty of the future, the possibility of failure. Think abut what those questions Kipling poses in If mean individually, and as a whole. Once you've read the poem the first time you'll know what Kipling is getting at, and that it takes affirmatives to all those "ifs" to be a man. Or does it? Maybe the world has changed, and Kipling is out of date. There really is no single correct interpretation of a poem. It means what it means to you; all you've been asked to do by the poet is read the work with effort and attention, then interpret it. (MORE)

Some authors like Rudyard Kipling argued the US and England had an obligation to conquer and civilize "less evolved" societies. . In addition to it being implicit in a lot of his work, check out the poem "White Man's Burden" for a fairly explicit statement of this thesis. It's pretty racist by toda…y's standards, but arguably it's essentially the same concept as (say) the Peace Corps. (MORE)
Since the poem is about courage and not giving up, the tone could be one of these options: 1. arrogant (how could that be it?) 2. Critical (maybe..but no one is being criticized.) 3. insightful (having power ...yes could be) 4. emotionless (I believe there is emotion) In order to find the… TONE re-read the poem to understand it and think about how you felt after reading it. Did you feel scared, happy, thoughtful, or any options that were given on top. I know you'll be sad to read this but the TONE is from the way YOU see the poem and not what someone wrote it is. It's up to you to decide what you felt after reading the poem..good luck! (MORE)
Kipling himself felt that the abuse he suffered while boarding with a family in England (as was the custom for British children born in India) formed the basis for his writing career. In his own words... "If you cross-examine a child of seven or eight on his day's doings (specially when he wants …to go to sleep) he will contradict himself very satisfactorily. If each contradiction be set down as a lie and retailed at breakfast, life is not easy. I have known a certain amount of bullying, but this was calculated torture-religious as well as scientific. Yet it made me give attention to the lies I soon found it necessary to tell: and this, I presume, is the foundation of literary effort" (MORE)
