Shakespearean Imagination

God save you, neighbours!

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

My apologies for missing my scheduled post last week; I was on vacation and I inadvertently ignored my calendar’s:

hint : hint / hint / (noun) (verb) :

- A slight or indirect indication or suggestion.


verb
- Suggest or indicate something indirectly or covertly.

First seen as a noun in Shakespeare's Othello (written 1604 - 1605). The full text of the play may be found here.
