The Female of the Species

the female of the species rudyard kipling

She the Other Law we live by, is that Law and nothing else. Man's timid heart is bursting with the things he must not say,For the Woman that God gave him isn't his to give away;But when hunter meets with husbands, each confirms the other's tale --The female of the species is more deadly than the male. So it comes that Man, the coward, when he gathers to confer With his fellow-braves in council, dare not leave a place for her Where, at war with Life and Conscience, he uplifts his erring hands To some God of Abstract Justice — which no woman understands. I love this work, but I find that most people who quote it miss the message. And when Babe and Man are lacking and she strides unchained to claim Her right as femme and baron , her equipment is the same. When the early Jesuit fathers preached to Hurons and Choctaws, They prayed to be delivered from the vengeance of the squaws. And She knows, because She warns him, and Her instincts never fail, That the Female of Her Species is more deadly than the Male.

The Female of the Species

the female of the species rudyard kipling

For the female of the species is more deadly than the male. Unprovoked and awful charges—even so the she-bear fights, Speech that drips, corrodes, and poisons—even so the cobra bites, Scientific vivisection of one nerve till it is raw And the victim writhes in anguish—like the Jesuit with the squaw! So it cames that Man, the coward, when he gathers to confer With his fellow-braves in council, dare nat leave a place for her Where, at war with Life and Conscience, he uplifts his erring hands To some God of Abstract Justice -- which no woman understands. And She knows, because She warns him and Her instincts never fail, That the female of Her species is more deadly than the male! He will meet no cool discussion, but the instant, white-hot wild Wakened female of the species warring as for spouse and child. These be purely male diversions -- not in these her honour dwells. The Female Of The Species When the Himalayan peasant meets the he-bear in his pride, He shouts to scare the monster who will often turn aside.

POEM: THE FEMALE OF THE SPECIES BY RUDYARD KIPLING

the female of the species rudyard kipling

She is wedded to convictions -- in default of grosser ties; Her contentions are her children, Heaven help him who denies! She can bring no more to living than the powers that make her great As the Mother of the Infant and the Mistress of the Mate. He will meet no cool discussion, but the instant, white-hot wild Wakened of the warring as for and child. Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil. Mirth obscene diverts his anger; Doubt and Pity oft perplex Him in dealing with an issue - to the scandal of the Sex! Unprovoked and charges - even so the she-bear fights; Speech that drips, and - even so the bites; Scientific of one till it is raw, And the writhes with - like the with the squaw! Man, a bear in most relations-worm and savage otherwise, -- Man propounds negotiations, Man accepts the compromise. She who faces Death by torture for each life beneath her breastMay not deal in doubt or pity -- must not swerve for fact or jest. For the female of the species is more deadly than the male. Very rarely will he squarely push the logic of a fact To its ultimate conclusion in unmitigated act.

The Female Of The Species by Rudyard Kipling

When the early Jesuit fathers preached to Hurons and Choctaws, They prayed to be delivered from the vengeance of the squaws - 'Twas the women, not the warriors, turned those stark enthusiasts pale - For the female of the species is more deadly than the male. But his mate makes no such motion where she camps beside the trail. Knows, moreover, that the Woman that God gave him Must command but may not govern—shall enthrall but not enslave him. For the female of the species is more deadly than the male. Man, a bear in most relations, worm and savage otherwise, Man propounds negotiations, Man accepts the compromise; Very rarely will he squarely push the logic of a fact To its ultimate conclusion in unmitigated act.

The Female of the Species poem

the female of the species rudyard kipling

— He will meet no suave discussion, but the instant, white-hot, wild, Wakened female of the species warring as for spouse and child. She who faces Death by torture for each life beneath her breast May not deal in doubt or pity—must not swerve for fact or jest. For the female of the species is more deadly than the male. She is wedded to convictions - in default of grosser ties; Her contentions are her children, Heaven help him, who denies! And She knows, because She warns him, and Her instincts never fail, That the Female of Her Species is more deadly than the Male. Man's timid heart is bursting with the things he must not say, For the Woman that God gave him isn't his to give away; But when hunter meets with husband, each confirms the others tale - The female of the species is more deadly than the male. These be purely male diversions -- not in these her honour dwells.
