Shakespearean Imagination

Good morrow, friends!

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

I’ve mentioned before that I’ve been doing back-to-back theatrical productions. The fourth (in a series of five) opens tomorrow night – Noël Coward’s Blithe Spirit. If you’re familiar with Coward as a playwright, you know that his use of conversational language created its own unique genre of play – the drawing room comedy. You can find out more about Coward here. One of my favourite lines from the play is “It isn’t nonsense. I know it looks like nonsense in the cold, remorseless light of day, but last night it was far from being nonsense. I honestly had some sort of hallucination.” And so, my word for the day is:


remorseless : re•morse•less / riˈmôrsləs / (adjective) :


adjective
- without regret or guilt
-(of something unpleasant) never ending or improving; relentless

Synonyms: merciless - ruthless - pitiless - relentless


First seen in Shakespeare's Henry VI, Part II (written 1590 - 1591). The full text of the play may be found here.
