Tantalize \Tan"ta*lize\, v. t. [imp. & p. p. Tantalized; p.
pr. & vb. n. Tantalizing.] [From Tantalus: cf. F.
To tease or torment by presenting some good to the view and
exciting desire, but continually frustrating the expectations
by keeping that good out of reach; to tease; to torment.
Thy vain desires, at strife
Within themselves, have tantalized thy life. --Dryden.
Syn: To tease; vex; irritate; provoke.
Usage: Tantalize, Disappoint. To disappoint is literally
to do away with what was (or was taken to be)
appointed; hence the peculiar pain from hopes thus
dashed to the ground. To tantalize, a much stronger
term, describes a most distressing form of
disappointment, as in the case of Tantalus, the
Phrygian king. To tantalize is to visit with the
bitterest disappointment -- to torment by exciting
hopes or expectations which can never be realized.
