tear down so as to make flat with the ground
  • And, princes all, believe me, I beseech you; My father is gone wild into his grave, For in his tomb lie my affections; And with his spirit sadly I survive, To mock the expectation of the world, To frustrate prophecies and to raze out Rotten opinion, who hath writ me down After my seeming.
    5.2 — Act 5 Scene 2 — Westminster. The palace (88% in)
