It's Wednesday again, which means another installment of Shakespearean Imagination!
I have just returned from a visit to London, where I was finally able to tour Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre (the 1989 reproduction of the original open-air theatre), watching them build the set for their next production (designed specifically for kids aged 11-16), The Merchant of Venice. It was awe-inspiring to see the space and think of all the talented people who have graced the stage in the 25 years since its completion, and the millions of people who have been exposed to the Bard and his works thanks to the venue and its staff. In honor of that, I give you today’s word:
- too many to be counted; a very many
Synonyms: innumerable, numerous, untold, legion, numberless, limitless, multitudes, incalculable
First seen in Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus (written 1593- 1594). The full text of the play may be found here.
