The Poem
About the Author
William Ernest Henley (1849-1903)


From the age of 12, Henley suffered from tuberculosis of the bone that resulted in the amputation of his left leg below the knee.
His daughter died at the age of 5 of cerebral meningitis.
"Invictus" was written while Henley was on hospital bed after the amputation of his leg
Antithesis
strait means narrow or difficult
pit means hell
To “bludgeon” is to beat. So he
is saying that even though he’s
been harshly treated by fate, he
is still standing proud.
Biblical Illusion:
“Strait is the gate
and narrow the way that
leads to eternal life.”
(Matthew 7:14)
invictus is latin for
"unconquered."
Language
Uses word choice to create a dark, and then empowering feeling
Attitude:
Dark, Empowering, Motivating
Shift:
1st Stanza: after line 2
2nd Stanza: after line 3
3rd Stanza: after line 3
4th Stanza: after line 2
Syntax
Antithesis: "My head is bloody but unbowed."

Shift in every stanza from dark to postive

Anapohra or repetition of "un" at beginning of words: unafraid, unconquerable, unbowed


Speaker: William E. Henley
Ethos: He is a poet speaking
from personal life experiences
and hardships
Subject:
Keep your head up
Audience:
People going through hardships
or struggles in their life
Pathos:
The author uses diction that appeals
to your emotions. He talks about how
unlucky he is and uses words like
"bludgeonings" to get the point
across.




THANK YOU!
He is stating that even though
he doesn't know what is to come
he is unafraid and ready for life.
Even though his future is uncertain because of his disease he will continue to control his own fate and soul with whatever time he has
He is describing the troubles in his early life.
He is covered "pole to pole" with something terrible
Yet his soul remains unhindered.
