unrestrained by convention or propriety
  • Marry, and I am glad of it with all my heart: I had rather be a kitten, and cry mew, Than one of these same metre ballet-mongers; I had rather hear a brazen canstick turn'd, Or a dry wheel grate on the axletree; And that would set my teeth nothing on edge, Nothing so much as mincing poetry: 'tis like the forced gait of a shuffling nag.
    3.1 — Act 3 Scene 1 — Bangor. A Room in the Archdeacon's House (48% in)
