Shakespearean Imagination

Friends, what cheer?

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

The word for today is another Hamlet gem, and something I think this new theatre production is going to have me doing a lot of:

rant : rant /rant/ (noun) (verb) :

- A period of ranting; a tirade.

- Speak or shout at length in a wild, impassioned way

Synonyms as a verb: rave – harangue – spout – bluster – bellow – cry – declaim

Synonyms as a noun: tirade – rhetoric – diatribe – bluster

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