I came across a tricky sentence and I can't get the glimpse of it at all.
Please help me to find the meaning.
The night exploded in a clap of thunder, and the lights went out.
Is the above sentence mean 'A clap of thunder exploded in the night'?
If so, why it has changed like that?
I type it correct, so there's no typo.
please give me the answer!!
I've also noticed the poetical nature of the sentence. Is it an excerpt from some piece of literature ?
The night exploded in a clap of thunder , and the lights went out.
dark/ no sound ---> light/ sound ----> light----> dark.
