A brief annotation Literary heritage of the great Latvian modernist and urban poet, Aleksandrs Čaks (1901–1950) is multifaceted, wide ranging, and artistically brilliant. Many of Čaks’s poems are very musical: the melody seems to be implied in the image-loaded verse. During Čaks’s lifetime, some poems acquired melodies by anonymous authors, with the song "Confession" whose first line reads: "Fog mists the pane. Why go on and deny..." the most popular among them. Like the vast majority of world’s songs it is about love. It has become a part of Latvian folk heritage due to its natural sounding imagery and melancholy lyricism.
