Definition
Greek mythology:  the immortal winged horse; as the flying horse of the Muses it is a symbol of highflying imagination
  • I saw young Harry—with his beaver on, His cuisses on his thighs, gallantly arm'd— Rise from the ground like feather'd Mercury, And vault it with such ease into his seat, As if an angel dropp'd down from the clouds, To turn and wind a fiery Pegasus, And witch the world with noble horsemanship.
    4.1 — Act 4 Scene 1 — The Rebel Camp near Shrewsbury (80% in)
