  Sullen \Sul"len\, a. [OE. solein, solain, lonely, sullen;
     through Old French fr. (assumed) LL. solanus solitary, fr. L.
     solus alone. See {Sole}, a.]
     1. Lonely; solitary; desolate. [Obs.] --Wyclif (Job iii. 14).
        [1913 Webster]
  
     2. Gloomy; dismal; foreboding. --Milton.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              Solemn hymns so sullen dirges change. --Shak.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     3. Mischievous; malignant; unpropitious.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              Such sullen planets at my birth did shine. --Dryden.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     4. Gloomily angry and silent; cross; sour; affected with ill
        humor; morose.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              And sullen I forsook the imperfect feast. --Prior.

          intractable.
  
     Usage: {Sullen}, {Sulky}. Both sullen and sulky show
            themselves in the demeanor. Sullenness seems to be an
            habitual sulkiness, and sulkiness a temporary
            sullenness. The former may be an innate disposition;
            the latter, a disposition occasioned by recent injury.
            Thus we are in a sullen mood, and in a sulky fit.
            [1913 Webster]
  
                  No cheerful breeze this sullen region knows;
                  The dreaded east is all the wind that blows.
                                                    --Pope.
            [1913 Webster] -- {Sul"len*ly}, adv. --
            {Sul"len*ness}, n.
            [1913 Webster]
