Dramatic Reading of Total Eclipse

Writer, Annie Dillard, viewed, on February 26, 1979, a total eclipse from the Yakima Valley in central Washington State. She described her impressions of the eclipse in an essay, "Total Eclipse".
Dillard describes a nearly overwhelming emotional experience as suggested in this quotation:

"It materialized out of thin air – black, and flat, and sliding, outlined in flame. The heart screeched. The meaning of the sight overwhelmed its fascination. It obliterated meaning itself."

This essay was selected for inclusion in The Best American Essays of the 20th Century. (2000)
