"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."--
