Re: Book of Verses ("Invictus")


I absolutely love the poem "Invictus" from Henley's Book of Verses, and this was my attempt at putting it together, with the final phrase in the eye of the storm...

Boy, I never knew there were so many fans of this semi-obscure poem.

Inconceivable, eh?
This design reminds me too much of the religious literature you see lying around transit stations.

I have a shirt catalog, y'all!

I don't think the poem is obscure at all. It is referenced a lot in pop culture. Off the top of my head I remember it being quoted in Mass Effect 3 and 30 rock. Plus they made a movie recently that references the poem in the title. (Invictus)
