Shakespearean Imagination

Well met, friends!

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

My apologies for missing my last scheduled post; reality was not cooperating with me last week at all.

I find myself this week in “America’s Hometown” of Plymouth, MA. Most famous as the site of the Pilgrim settlement of Plimouth, and America’s first Thanksgiving celebration in the autumn of 1620, Plymouth also goes all-out celebrating American independence on the 4th of July. The preparations have been ongoing for weeks, and between tomorrow’s road race, parade, pops concert, and fireworks display, the Plymouth waterfront is guaranteed to be:

deafening : deaf•en•ing / ˈdefəniNG / (adjective) :

- (of a noise) So loud as to make it impossible to hear anything else.

Synonyms: earsplitting - noisy - cacophonic

First seen in Shakespeare's Henry IV, Part II (written 1597 - 1598). The full text of the play may be found here.
