Ever wondered?

Are you curious about the term ‘pale fire’?

It was first penned by Shakespeare in Timon of Athens: The moon’s an arrant thief, And her pale fire she snatches from the sun.
Wow! Needs no explanation, just appreciation. Who else could have that concept and arrange such words?
Incidentally, Vladimir Nabokov took that term as a title for his 1962 book.
