Shakespearean Imagination

How now, neighbours!

It's Wednesday (well, almost) again, which means another installment of Shakespearean Imagination!

I am actually at a 5-day seminar for my work, which runs through Sunday night, and I think that makes today’s word particularly apropos:

academe : ac•a•deme /ˌakəˈdēm / (noun) :

-the academic environment or community; academia.

Synonyms university – varsity – school

First seen in Shakespeare's Love’s Labours Lost (written 1594 - 1595). The full text of the play may be found here.
