: where did the word eyesore originate in shakespeare's plays? I can't find it anywhere!
Did it originate in Shakespeare's plays? Admittedly after the sketchiest of searches, the earliest usages that I can find of this are mid to late 1800's - Robert Browning and Robert Louis Stevenson. I'm sure someone will come up with earlier, though.
