This book was a English poet critic and editor rguably his best remembered work is the poem Invictus written in 1875. It is said that this was written as a demonstration of his resilience following the amputation of his foot due to tubercular infection. This passionate and defiant poem should be compared with his beautiful and contemplative acceptance of death and dying in the poem. he described as less a book than a mosaic of scraps and shreds recovered from the shot rubbish of some fourteen years of journalism.
