"The Mary Gloster" is one of Rudard Kipling's greatest poems. This video is how I pictured it when I first read it. An excellent character study, don't think I would like the character. Given some of his other works I think Kipling was at least ambivalent, but one of his strengths is speaking in the voice of his protagonist.
Watch and enjoy.
The Mary Gloster text.
