The Sun in Anger Swore


And the moon in haste eclipsed her,
and the Sun in anger swore
He would curl his wick within him
and give light to you no more.
– Aristophanese, Chorus of Clouds

A withdrawn, seething red amber spiked with dragon’s blood resin, black pepper, red musk, and red oudh.

On Monday, 21 August 2017, all of North America will experience an eclipse of the sun, with a total eclipse stretching from Oregon to South Carolina. During this event, the moon will completely cover the sun, and the sun’s corona will extend its golden tendrils from behind a shadowed veil. Solar eclipses have been held responsible for the fall of empires, the onset of wars, the birth and death of great people, and the onset of terrible plagues and natural disasters. Is this rare and awe-inspiring event an omen? Grab your nearest soothsayer or augur; it’s big business for seers this year!

This series is a paean to this once in a lifetime event: an amber-gilded sampling of the poetry, prose, notable persons, mythology, and historical accounts surrounding solar eclipses.
