“Invictus” By William Ernest Henley Review

This poem is about courage in the face of death, and holding on to one’s own dignity despite the indignities life places before us.

I gotta admit that this poem is one of very few poems which I really liked and really enjoyed.

This poem was interesting because of the plot which about having the courage when you are facing death. Yes, dead is a very generic plot for poems but this poem had a really unique and very interesting take on this generic plot for poems. 

The writing style was also very good because it felt like something I would think. Which I’m giving this poem a lots points for.

This poem have only four strophes, but these four strophes says much more than that. 

And while reading this poem I’ve for whatever reason read it in Morgan Freeman voice because this poem for whatever reason suited his voice.

I give this poem 5 / 5
