Dennis Hopper Recites Kiplings "If"
"If" my favorite poem written in 1895 by Rudyard Kipling was according to Kipling inspired by Dr. Leander Star Jameson who lead a raid in the same year by the British against the Boers in South Africa. This raid ultimately lead to the Second Boer War. Though defeated Jameson was presented as a hero in the press and and the raid as a British victory.
