    • POEM: Invictus by William Ernest Henley (10/11/2010 11:45:00 AM)

      It takes a hardcore realist to believe that 'Regardless of our mastery of our fate, the things that happen to us are completely beyond our control. ' I am a very religious person myself and I see your view, but I don't entirely agree with it. It seems like you suggest that we are not in control of the sad depressing things that happen to us. I would agree that stuff does happen that we cannot control, but each and every one of us has the power to control how we will react to the things that happen to us. I think that is one of the most powerful ideas represented in this poem. Throughout the poem the speaker describes how even through the most awful and depressing circumstances, he has come out conqueror (while attributing this to God, in his own unique way) . To me this poem states that yeah, life can be tough, we can be faced with all sorts of trials, but we are not slaves to these trials. What a treasure of a poem!
