ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the contents and implications of the letters of Heloise. The letters present the readers with a logical conundrum by building the oppositions between several concepts. These letters pose a question on whether to believe in the correspondent or on the letters itself. It brings the readers a mixture of enthrallment and frustration with an inability to discern the truth. Thus, reading the letters would give an experience like facing with a basilisk.
