Definition
excessively noisy and unrestrained
  • The cease of majesty Dies not alone; but like a gulf doth draw What's near it with it: it is a massy wheel, Fix'd on the summit of the highest mount, To whose huge spokes ten thousand lesser things Are mortis'd and adjoin'd; which, when it falls, Each small annexment, petty consequence, Attends the boisterous ruin.
    3.3 — Act 3 Scene 3 — A room in the Castle (22% in)
