Shakespearean Imagination

God save you, neighbours!

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

So, I left last Thursday to go on holiday. In prep for that, I pre-posted last Wednesday’s word in a timed post that was supposed to have gone live midday Wednesday, and yesterday's post was supposed to have gone live midday yesterday. Clearly, I did not do it correctly! In apology, today’s post has last week’s missed word and this week’s word. I’m still on holiday, enjoying time with loved ones I see far too little of, but I wanted to make time to post this.


excitement : ex•cite•ment /ikˈsītmənt/ (noun) :



noun
-a feeling of great enthusiasm and eagerness.
- something that arouses such a feeling; an exciting incident.


Synonyms excitation – agitation – fluster – thrill – eagerness – enthusiasm


First seen in Shakespeare's Hamlet (written 1600 - 1601). The full text of the play may be found here.




Of course, the problem with last week’s post was most likely because I was so:


hurried : hur•ried / hûr d / (adjective) (verb) :



adjective
- moving or acting rapidly
- required to move or act more rapidly; rushed
- done in great haste


Synonyms hasty – quick – brief – rushed – short – speedy – cursory – slapdash – precipate



verb (past tense of hurry)
- move or act with haste; rush
- do something more quickly


Synonyms hasten – rush – speed – hustle – hie – hurry up


First seen in Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors (written 1592 - 1593). The full text of the play may be found here.
