In his letters dating from the second century AD, the Roman orator and statesman Pliny the Younger wrote of finding solace in poetry as a means to embrace the uncertainties of life and to accept, albeit reluctantly, the inevitability of death. вАШвАШLiterature,вАЩвАЩ he said, вАШвАШis both my joy and my comfort: it can add to every happiness and there is no sorrow it cannot console.вАЩвАЩ The poet took refuge in his work and sought to communicate to others the depth of his emotion and the expanse of his intellect.
