Correct Answer: Invictus
So why is this answer correct? : William Ernest Henley was a writer and poet in 19th century Victorian England. He wrote his best-known poem, “Invictus,” Latin for “invincible,” in 1875 after he had his leg amputated due to tuberculosis complications. Only 16 at the time of the surgery, Henley was inspired during his recovery to write the verses that would become one of the most inspirational poems of the century.
