Poems by William Ernest Henley( )

167 editions published between 1898 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"British poet, critic and editor, Henley's verse is known for its bravado and spirit of defiance, yet it could be equally delicate and lyrical. His best-known poems include England, My England, and Invictus, which concludes with the famous lines I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul. Nearly all of the poems contained in this volume are reprinted from A Book of Verses and London Voluntaries. He has divided the poems into the following headings: In Hospital; Bric-A-Brac; Echoes; London Voluntaries; A Song of Speed; and Rhymes and Rhythms."--
The plays of William Ernest Henley & Robert Louis Stevenson by William Ernest Henley( )

William Ernest Henley is most noted for his poetry of which he wrote several volumes with the outstanding contribution being the poem 'Invictus'. His life was overshadowed by a great deal of ill health and although he died at the young age of 53 he contributed much to Victorian literature. His partner in the plays we publish here made a somewhat greater contribution to the literary world. Indeed in the Scottish canon to be placed alongside Burns is high praise indeed but it's a rightful place for one of Scotland's finest novelists. Born in 1850 he managed to cram much into his 44 years travelling widely to France, the United States, Samoa and the South Seas. Of course he is widely feted for his classics Dr. Jeckyll & Mr. Hyde, Treasure Island and poetry volumes such as A Child's Garden Of Verses. Together these two fine minds bring us some largely forgotten works which we are pleased to publish here
