Thread: Incarnate

    In the Oxford Dictionary incarnate is described like this,
    adjective often after a noun 1 (of a deity or spirit) embodied in flesh; in human form.

    What I would like to know is whether it can mean a feeling or abstract idea embodied, e.g.
    Hell incarnate; he is bliss incarnate.

    Why not? It says that the spirit or feeling is, in your opinion, given flesh, made real. It's strictly poetic, but the message is clear.
