comment to "Ulalum" : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

What does mean the phrase: "She is warmer than Dian"? First - goddes of Moon Diana is of feminine gender and Dian seems to be of masculine. Second - it's a very strange comparison. Diana isn't warm at all. It must be cold. I'm thinking about african people dian or dyan living in Upper Volta - very hot place indeed. If one wants to say that Astarte is very warm it's more sensible to compare her with african Dian than Diana. Unfortunately I can't find enough information about this people. Thank you.
