  1. The hero never spares a thought for Death,
    On which the poet lavishes his breath.
    But Death and Immortality stand by
    To give them both admittance when they die.

    1. Thank you Victor. Since you are one of the top Russian scholars who devoted all your life to the Middle East, your opinion is very interesting!

    2. “who devoted all your life”…..makes me feel like a monument or smth like a rather ancient thing, what do you think Vadim? Anyway, never mind that now, actually I am the one who ought to thank you for giving me the opportunity to have my word in your blog.
