The poems collected here are mostly light verse barrack-room ballads," Kipling called them inspired by Kipling's early adventures as a newspaperman in British colonial India. The first book Kipling published, Departmental Ditties (1886), emphasizes the universality of human experience and the cross-cultural ubiquity of the ignoble and tragicomic aspects of human character.
