sometimes words or phrases catch my eye. Today this one did : “Emma Thompson plays Nancy, retired and recently widowed, vividly unhappy, and at the limit of her ability to endure her own unhappiness.” written by Sheila O’Malley in her review of the movie Good Luck to you, Leo Grande.
“vividly unhappy and at the limit of her ability to endure her own unhappiness” I know this feeling! the adjective “vividly” is an excellent choice to modify unhappy in the way the v’s and d’ hit sound wise – in my head and out loud.
happy feelings generated just reading it.
