Shakespearean Imagination

God save you, neighbours!

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

I apologise for my unplanned hiatus; life intervened and unfortunately some of my online commitments had to be broken. I feel badly about deserting you, though, and so in honor of that, and by way of apology, I offer you today’s word:

grovel : grov•el /ˈgrävəl,ˈgrə-/ (verb):

- lie or move abjectly on the ground with one's face downward

Synonyms: prostrate oneself - lie - kneel - cringe

First seen in Shakespeare's King Henry VI Part II (written 1590- 1591). The full text of the play may be found here.
