Definition
the act of taking revenge

(Revenge means to harm someone to get them back for something harmful that they have done.)
  • O, vengeance!

  • But as we often see, against some storm, A silence in the heavens, the rack stand still, The bold winds speechless, and the orb below As hush as death, anon the dreadful thunder Doth rend the region; so, after Pyrrhus' pause, A roused vengeance sets him new a-work; And never did the Cyclops' hammers fall On Mars's armour, forg'd for proof eterne, With less remorse than Pyrrhus' bleeding sword Now falls on Priam.
    2.2 — Act 2 Scene 2 — A room in the Castle (81% in)
