: I've heard the phrase "Bible Black" to refer to a very dark night, or an extreme lack of color. Can anyone find a reference to this in literature?

I've not exactly found it, as I knew where it was without looking, but 'Under Milk Wood' - Dylan Thomas - provides probably the best-known reference.
