Shakespearean Imagination

God save you, neighbours!

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

Watching the news coverage from Colorado, it's easy to wonder whether or not it's time to start looking for an ark. (Who would worry about flooding a mile above sea level?) In honor of that, I give you today’s word:

submerge : sub•merge / səbˈmərj / (verb):

- Cause to be under water.

Synonyms: flood - inundate – deluge – swamp

First seen in Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra (written 1607 - 1608). The full text of the play may be found here.
