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. Knows, moreover, that the Woman that God gave him Must command but may not govern—shall enthral but not enslave him. His mother was one of the talented and beautiful Macdonald sisters, four of whom married remarkable men: Sir Edward Burne-Jones, Sir Edward Poynter, Alfred Baldwin and John Lockwood Kipling himself. And when Babe and Man are lacking and she strides unchained to claimHer right as femme and baron , her equipment is the same. But the Woman that God gave him, every fibre of her frameProves her launched for one sole issue, armed and engined for the same,And to serve that single issue, lest the generations fail,The female of the species must be deadlier than the male. 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. This is pointing to one such characteristic of a female and not the whole definition which is in a way a complement for being able to handle things when things are tough to ensure survival of the species In my opinion it doesn't make her cold hearted but only focused on what is important for the long term without swayed by emotions or short term losses.

For 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. His poems include Mandalay 1890 , Gunga Din 1890 , The Gods of the Copybook Headings 1919 , The White Man's Burden 1899 , and If— 1910. Very rarely will he squarely push the logic of a fact To its ultimate conclusion in unmitigated act. Fear, or foolishness, impels him, ere he lay the wicked low, To concede some form of trial even to his fiercest foe.

Mirth obscene diverts his anger; Doubt and Pity oft perplex Him in dealing with an issue - to the scandal of the Sex! ’Twas the women, not the warriors, turned those stark enthusiasts pale. 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 with anguish - like the Jesuit with the squaw! For the female of the species is more deadly than the male. When the early Jesuit fathers preached to Hurons and Choctaws, They prayed to be delivered from the vengeance of the squaws. He was also sounded out for the British Poet Laureateship and on several occasions for a knighthood, both of which he declined. — He will meet no suave discussion, but the instant, white-hot, wild, Wakened female of the species warring as for spouse and child. She the Other Law we live by, is that Law and nothing else.

This story was adapted as the 1967 European spy movie. Knows, moreover, that the Woman that God gave him Must command but may not govern -- shall enthral but not enslave him. When the early Jesuit fathers preached to Hurons and Choctaws, They prayed to be delivered from the vengeance of the squaws. Knows, moreover, that the Woman that God gave him Must command but may not govern; shall enthrall but not enslave him. But the she-bear thus accosted rends the peasant tooth and nail. She is intemperate, unforgiving, ruthless and ultimately self-serving if left to her own devices. Man, a bear in most relations-worm and savage otherwise, --Man propounds negotiations, Man accepts the compromise.

We can do this because we're convinced you'll love your print. Fear, or foolishness, impels him, ere he lay the wicked low, To concede some form of trial even to his fiercest foe.

The Female of the Species poem

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. But the she-bear thus accosted rends the peasant tooth and nail. Kipling is not saying women are more inherently dangerous on a pound for pound basis, or more likely than a man to win fair fight; he is saying a woman, when she deems violence necessary, is more likely to act decisively, without scruple, and without being so foolish as to allow a fair fight. She is wedded to convictions -- in default of grosser ties; Her contentions are her children, Heaven help him who denies! But the Woman that God gave him, every fibre of her frame Proves her launched for one sole issue, armed and engined for the same, And to serve that single issue, lest the generations fail, The female of the species must be deadlier 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! Even if to the ruin of all others. A 1946 novel by was titled More Deadly Than The Male. But the she-bear thus accosted rends the peasant tooth and nail.

He will meet no cool discussion, but the instant, white-hot wild Wakened female of the species warring as for spouse and child. There seems to be a law and they follow to the T Indian or Hindu mythology is all about analogies and this deadly image is very similar to description of Kali I often sense that everyone knows that you cannot push a women beyond a limit and never when it comes to her children or her home lest she will turn into incarnation of Kali and suck your blood without mercy Mr K has also observed animals keenly and I think has seen the pattern that survival of species needs the female to be more deadly. These be purely male diversions - not in these her honor dwells - She, the Other Law we live by, is that Law and nothing else! For the female of the species is more deadly than the male. The title and refrain have been used as a title for at least three other works see. Knows, moreover, that the Woman that God gave him Must command but may not govern; shall enthrall but not enslave him.
