- v. To defy.
from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- To dare; defy.
Delacroix had a studio to the south; she also would 'bedare the sun.'
It was brave and ardent, like a young eaglet, "with eyes intentive to bedare the sun;" but it had its traditions to lay down, its experience to buy, and large sections of its military lesson still to learn.
