Anthony Day’s views and insights of Czeslaw Milosz as a brave soul were rewarding reading (“The Poet Remembers,” Aug. 15).
However, I reject Milosz’s admonition that we learn to “live with contradictions” or be lost. I fear that when too many accept this, it weakens the necessary resolve needed to build a coherent society. Only when individuality is accepted and honored can we find ways to live in harmony, and build barriers against the curse of wars.
