Rudyard Kipling Puck of Pook's Hill is a historical fantasy novel, containing short stories set in different periods of English history. Puck magically plucks people out of history to tell stories to two children living near Burwash, not far from Kipling's real own house in Bateman's. Puck, who refers to himself as "the oldest thing in England", is better known as a character in William Shakespeare's play A Midsummer Night's Dream. Each story is bracketed by a poem which relates in some manner to the theme or subject of the story.
