Definition
an overwhelming amount — especially of quickly moving water
  • We see which way the stream of time doth run, And are enforced from our most quiet there By the rough torrent of occasion; And have the summary of all our griefs, When time shall serve, to show in articles; Which long ere this we offer'd to the king, And might by no suit gain our audience: When we are wrong'd and would unfold our griefs, We are denied access unto his person Even by those men that most have done us wrong.
    4.1 — Act 4 Scene 1 — Yorkshire. Gaultree Forest (33% in)
