Superior Person's Tuesday!

ATARAXIA, n. Absolute calm and tranquility; imperturbability; complete freedom from anxiety or strain. The condition of a lexicographer on reaching the word zythum, which, appropriately enough, means a kind of malt beer. A zythepsary is a brewery.

A quiet place to achieve ataraxia.

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. Ataraxia  appears in the first.
