To INTHRALL. v.a.

to-inthrall-va

To INTHRALL. v.a. [in and thrall.] To enslave; to shac-
kle; to reduce to servitude. A word now seldom used, at
least in prose.
What though I be inthrall’d, he seems a knight,
And will not any way dishonour me. Shakesp. Henry VI.
The Turk has sought to extinguish the ancient memory of
those people which he has subjected and inthrall’d. Raleigh.
Authors to themselves in all
Both what they judge, and what they choose; for so
I form’d them free, and free they must remain
Till they inthrall themselves. Milton’s Par. Lost, b. ii.
She soothes, but never can inthrall my mind:
Why may not peace and love for once be join’d. Prior.
