It is a children’s rhyme that was sung to remind us not to be cruel and insight in to Rudyard’s hard life as a child when he left India. For then rhymes would be followed by poetry and study of English language and the stories behind the words. Which lead to reading books and studying English literature? So, you got to understand the significance of the writing. Just like a picture everyone interprets it as one sees it and if they have a sound knowledge of the individual’s background, they can relate better to the work or understand its meaning more. Rudyard as a child was called punch baba by the Ayah and his sister Judy baba. Ayah is like a nanny. Rudyard and his sister Judy were sent to England to live with foster parents by the sea. This was done a lot at that time. At about that time in India a lot of English and European people were in India for the British east India Company was there with the wars and the exportation of salt and spices. There were plagues and horrific diseases and many people died.

The people Rudyard and Judy stayed with were a husband wife and child a boy. The man Rudyard referred to as master was an old serviceman who had fought at the battle of Navarino and suffered horrific trauma. The wife he refers to as dame. The boy would tell untruths about Rudyard and the dame would severely beat him and the master was not strong enough against the dame and was not capable in his mind although he tried even Judy turned her back on him for a while. The bags of wool are a verse that reads when I was in my father’s house, I was a better man. The second bag of wool is words by the poet Clough. This is for when all hope is lost. The third bag is despair. He was five years old when he was sent to England. The picture shows Rudyard how he went to military college wrote for the military gazette in Lahore India. His son was killed in Loos and his nephew on the western front. He joined Sir Fabians wares Imperial war graves commission now the commonwealth war graves commission. He created the garden like war graves that we see at the western front.

This is where all the troops of the British Empire lie buried. Rudyard also contributed the words their name liveth for evermore and on the stones of remembrance in larger war cemeteries the words Know unto God for the gravestones of unidentified servicemen. He won the Nobel peace prize in literature in 1907.He wrote many classic children’s stories of which one is the Jungle book and Just so stories. He never forgot the magical life in India and Ayah who would have been like a mum to him and her son like a brother. In fact, some children loved the Ayahs and family more than their own. He wrote many pamphlets and poems supporting the UK’s war. So, the pictures show great sadness and the pain he endured as a small child and the pain and sorrow of loss and war which so many endured at that time, that is what the verse bah-bah black sheep is about. How he brought happiness to the lives of so many with his children’s stories and imagination.

After the wars and there were so many writers who did the same. It is important to believe in magical wonderful things and escape the reality of true pain and hardship that they had seen and be able to laugh again and smile and have hope and that was for adults too .C.S Lewis wrote the chronicles of Narnia for example that was to help the children because so many were evacuated to outlying areas from the blitz in London during the second world war. History was taught, and books written so people would not make the same mistakes of the past again and that is why books were destroyed or forbidden in parts of the past because if you knew the past you would question the decisions of the future because you would know the outcome.
