PBC0097: dread of the future

PBC 97 evokes dread associated with historic disasters from ancient times. A warm Moscow night under the lights evokes the sights and sounds of Herculaneum before being covered with Vesuvius’s molten lava (W344). The banks of the Neva River transport witnesses of the bloody Revolution to the animal sacrifices at yearly festivals of the nomadic Scythians (W342). This PBC shows a literary understanding of unprecedented, unpredictable present circumstances through the lens of ancient places and events, both historical and mythic.
