vivacious & circumscribe

Quotations:

Complete Works of Virginia Woolf:

Glancing back, at the doorway, they saw Mr. Pepper as though he had suddenly loosened his clothes, and had become a vivacious and malicious old ape.

 It seemed dreadful that the town should blaze for ever in the same spot; dreadful at least to people going away to adventure upon the sea, and beholding it as a circumscribed mound, eternally burnt, eternally scarred.

Definitions:

vivacious:
having a lively, attractive personality;

circumscribe:
1. to limit sb/sth's freedom, rights, power, etc.
2. to draw a circle around another shape;
