    • POEM: Invictus by William Ernest Henley (6/25/2010 2:12:00 AM)

      Chris,
      Thank you for your own perspective of the poem. I think the beauty of poetry, compared to prose, is it can mean different things to different persons. The interpretation can even differ by ones state of mind.
      As long as one understands the allusions correctly and can connect the lines logically, I think one has the right to interpret a poem as he understands it.

      I do not view the poem as a pessimistic one but I am also in no real pain. So, I see it as an inspiring one. Had I been in great misery, I could have perceived it differently. But I really liked the way you divided it into a physical and spiritual part. However, I interpreted it as a whole like many other you see here.

      Thank you again!
