Rob Hardy 1, Rudyard Kipling 0


We are delighted to report that AustenBlog reader Rob Hardy had a poem, “Jane Austen’s Toes,” published in The Apple Valley Review’s Fall 2007 issue. The poem (apparently inspired by a line in Carol Shields’ biography of Jane Austen) is quite lovely in our opinion and beats that Kipling fellow’s mash-poems about Jane all cold. Do check it out.
