Annie Dillard’s Total Eclipse Essay

Timely reprint of this Annie Dillard essay reprinted in today’s online The Atlantic. In Out in the Cold, I quoted Ms. Dillard writing that a partial eclipse just won’t do, and what do you know, I wasn’t the only one.

“Seeing a partial eclipse bears the same relation to seeing a total eclipse as kissing a man does to marrying him, or as flying in an airplane does to falling out of an airplane.”
