Shakespearean Imagination

God save you, neighbours!

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

I've been performing in a run of the play The Foreigner, written by Larry Shue, and we are (at long last!) in our final week of shows! In honor of that, I give you today’s word:

critic : crit•ic /’kritik/ (noun):

- a person who expresses an unfavourable opinion of something
- a person who judges the merits of literary, artistic, or musical works, especially one who does so professionally

Synonyms for the first definition: detractor, attacker, fault-finder
Synonyms for the second definition: reviewer, commentator, evaluator, analyst, judge, pundit

First seen in Shakespeare's Love’s Labour’s Lost (written 1594- 1595). The full text of the play may be found here.
