("Magic of the sun")
The sun as a "symbol of eternal human yaerning for warmth and light" (Bernd Pilz) has never lost ist fscination and magic despite scientific knowledge.

The early painting of children show the sun mostly cut at the left or right top. Often it is painted with thin lips, big eyes and its shaft of light are shaking. So the sun appears as a good natured star.

The anthropomorphous idea is the predominating one in this book. It is a fragmentary homage containing an introductory text out of the Ancient Egypt up to the present time. Texts and poems throw a diverse glance at this topic.
Echnaton, Goethe, Gleim, Hölderin and Heine prais the beauty of that heavenly body. John Donne makes the sun earthen; it enters our daily ordinariness out of its deference. Grabbe`s faint towards the sun lets it appear as an untouchable opponent. In the same way it appears in the discriptions of Trakl and Schlott. For Thomas Rosenlöcher it implies an engine of an enormous motive power whereas for Ingeborg Arlt the sun remains helpless toward the aggression of human activity despite of all its power.

The spirit of the times and the individual condition form the lyric expression of the sun charakteristics. This specific expression is deeply reflected in the coloured pages; the blaze of colour corresponds to the content.
Other relations in the texts and poems are withdrawn in favour of the topic "SUN".
