- n. Plural form of deflowering.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
"Mannerist Poets" seems a shrewder indication of their intellectual excesses, their discordia concors, the worms and deflowerings, and the affinities between, say, Donne's lachrymose poems for Lucy, Duchess of Bedford and the madrigals of his near-contemporary Gesualdo.
Itâ€ ™ s fast-paced, wildly inappropriate (think drug overdoses and back-of-limo deflowerings) and frequently hilarious.
