Superior Person's Tuesday!

Oubliette n. A dungeon, often in the form of a deep and narrow well, designed for the permanent incarceration of those whom it is desired to forget.

At least this prisoner gets electric lighting in his oubliette. Wi-Fi? Not so much.
 Each Tuesday, we’ll offer up a Superior Word for the edification of our Superior Readers, via the volumes of the inimitable Peter Bowler. You can purchase all or any of the four Superior Person’s Books of Words from the Godine website. Oubliette appears in the First.
