26Asummer  Day

  One day thirty years ago Marseilles lay in the burning sun. A blazing nonupon  a  fierce  August  day  was  no  greater  rarity  in  southern  France  thenthan  at  any  other  time  before  or  since.  Every-tiring  in  Marseiiles  andabout Marseilles had stared at the fervid1 sun, and been stared at in return,until a staring habit had become universal there. Strangers were staredout  of  countenance(1)  by  staring  white  houses,  8taring  white  streets,staring tracts2 of arid3 road, staring hills from which verdure was burntaway. The only things to be seen not fixedly4 staring and glaring were thevines drooping5 under their loads of grapes. These did occasionally winka  little,  u  the  hot  air  barely  moved  their  faint  leaves.
The  universal  stare  made  the  eyes  ache.  Towards  the  distant  blue(2)  ofthe  Italian  coast,  indeed,  it  was  a  little  relieved  by  light  clouds  ofmist Slowly rising from the evaporation6 of the sea, but it softened7 nowhereelse. Far away the staring roads, deep in dust, stared from the hillside,stared from the hollow, stared from the interminable plain. Far away thedusty  vines  overhanging  wayside  cottages,  and  the  monotonous  waysideavenues of parched8 trees without shade, dropped beneath the stare of earthand  sky.  So  did  the  horses  with  drowsy  bells,  in  long  files  of  carts,creeping slowly towards the interior; so did their recumbent drivers, whenthey were awake, which rarely happened; so did the exhausted9 laborers10 inthe fields.(3) Every- thing that lived or grew was oppressed by the glare;except  the  lizard,  passing  swiftly  over  rough  stone  walls,  and  cicada,chirping its dry hot chirp11, like a rattle12. The very dust was scorched13 brown,and something quivered in the atmosphere as if the air itself were panting.
Blinds,  shutters,  curtains  ,awnings,  were  all  closed  and  drawn  to  keepout  the  stare.  Grant  it  but  a  chink  or  a  keyhole,  and  it  shot  in  like  awhite-hot  arrow.(4)
