    Hi guys,

    What does the word "inspissated" and the expression "inspissated gloom" mean?

    For example;
    • As someone possessed by an almost inspissated irrationality ....
    • Stories of such inspissated gloom, however superbly crafted, do not normally appeal to movie-makers ....
    • The writing here has a quality of compression, a skillfully inspissated account of ....
    • An inspissated environment.

    Thanks.

    Verb1.inspissate*- make viscous or dense, change state; "thicken the sauce by adding flour"

    In which case, inspissated gloom would just mean that it is very gloomy, that's about it.
