Shakespearean Imagination

God save you, neighbours!

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

Today is a day of remembrance and memorials in the US, a day that still gives many people pause, even twelve years later. With that in mind, I give you today’s word:

lonely : lone•ly / ˈlōnlē / (adjective) :

adjective
- Sad because one has no friends or company.
- Without companions; solitary


Synonyms: lonesome - solitary - lone - desolate - alone - secluded


First seen as a noun in Shakespeare's Coriolanus (written 1607 - 1608). The full text of the play may be found here.



special note: On the 10th anniversary of 9/11, I wrote this. Rather than repeat it, I just encourage those interested to take a moment and read it. Thank you.
