"The Consolation of Philosophy" by Ancius Boethius

Written while in prison awaiting the trial that would lead to his execution, Boethius explores happiness, virtue, human nature, free will and more in his “Consolation of Philosophy”. He personifies Philosophy, who makes her initial appearance to help Boethius let go of being too attached to earthly possessions. Through his mind, his soul, and the comfort of the figure of Philosophy, Boethius is able to find comfort in his darkest hour.
