Shakespearean Imagination

God save you, neighbours!

It's Wednesday, which means another installment of Shakespearean Imagination!

All of the United Kingdom is readying for the celebration of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee - 60 years on the throne - so in Her Majesty's honour, I give you:

majestic: ma·jes·tic : \məˈjestik\ (adj): having or showing impressive beauty or dignity.

Synonyms: stately - grand - magnificent - noble - august

First seen in Shakespeare's Julius Caesar (written 1599-1600). The full text of the play may be found here.
