Shakespearean Imagination!

God save you, neighbours!

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

I have been re-reading Hamlet recently, as I’m working on a play that draws many references from Shakespeare’s text, and I was reminded of this little gem. Without further ado, I give you today’s word:

barefaced : bare•faced /ˈbe(ə)rˌfāst / (adjective) :

adjective
- Shameless; undisguised.
- Having an uncovered face, so as to be exposed or vulnerable to something.



Synonyms: impudent - shameless - brazen - insolent - cheeky


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