To Impáradise. v.a. [imparadisare, Italian.] To put in a place or state resembling paradise in felicity.

This imparadised neighbourhood made Zelmane's soul cleave unto her, both through the ivory case of her body, and the apparel which did over-cloud it. Sidney, b. ii.

            All my souls be
Imparadis'd in you, in whom alone
I understand, and grow, and see.

            Thus these two,
Imparadis'd in one another's arms,
The happier Eden, shall enjoy their fill
Of bliss on bliss.
Milton's Paradise Lost.

Sources: Donne, John (44) · Milton, John (449) · Sidney, Philip (140)
