Shakespearean Imagination

Friends, what cheer?

It's time for another installment of Shakespearean Imagination!

My apologies for missing yesterday's post - it is no longer Wednesday anywhere in the world, I'm fairly certain, and at this point, any excuse I could make would be (the primary definition, in particular):

circumstantial : cir•cum•stan•tial /ˌsərkəmˈstanSHəl/ (adjective) :

- Pointing indirectly towards someone’s guilt, but not directly proving it.
- Of, relating to, or dependent upon circumstances.
- Of no primary significance; incidental.
- Complete and particular; full of detail.

Synonyms: incidental – presumptive – conjectural – indirect – detailed – specific - particular

First seen in Shakespeare's As You Like It (written 1599 - 1600). The full text of the play may be found here.
