Word of the Week: ‘Relume’ (v.) – relight, rekindle, burn afresh

‘Put out the light, and then put out the light.
If I quench thee, thou flaming minister,
I can again thy former light restore
Should I repent me; but once put out thy light,
Thou cunning’st pattern of excellent nature,
I know not where is that Promethean heat
That can thy light relume. When I have plucked thy rose
I cannot give it vital growth again.’
[Othello to himself, of Desdemona]
Othello V.ii
