Surprise, Wonder, Amazement, Admiration
Jason Stiles reads instructions from Dialogues for Schools, an 1813 textbook:
"Wonder or amazement opens the eyes, and makes them appear very prominent. It sometimes raises them to the skies, but more frequently fixes them on the object; the mouth is open, and the hands are held up nearly in the attitude of fear; the voice is low at first, but so emphatical, that every word is pronounced slowly and with energy."
CONSTANCE (Elisha Bartels):
Gone to be friends!
Shall Lewis have Blanch? And Blanch those provinces?
It is not so; Thou hast mis-spoke, mis-heard.
Be well advis’d, tell o’er thy tale again;
It cannot be. Thou dost but say it is so.
What dost thou mean by this shaking of thou head?
Then speak again, not all thy former tale,
But this one word, whether thy tale be true.
