Book Review: ‘Obscurity’ by Raven Williams

An interesting collection of short pieces about obscure words in the English language.

41syxB8CWFLWords are such fascinating things. They carry enormous power, have the ability to make or break relationships, and are intrinsic to our need for meaning and communication. As one who enjoys exploring and experimenting with words and language, I found this book to be a pleasant surprise.

‘Obscurity’ is a collection of reflections on obscure words that are little used, but which still carry some relevance and application in life today. Each piece is thoughtful and interesting, yet written with a relaxed and conversational tone that sets the reader at ease and leads their thoughts on a gentle stroll through some of the quieter corners of the garden that is the English language.
