Need some advice here. I have a character who is going to reflect on the arrogance of another character's words in a letter. I want to use the verb brood. The sentence sounds correct when I write it as: "She brooded over the arrogance in the magister's words." However, thesaurus.com gives me a definition of "agonize over" which is perfect for what I'm trying to say but now I'm not sure if the use of "over" in "brood over" is redundant or if that matters. I can write the sentence as: "She brooded the arrogance in the magister's words." and it eliminates the redundancy but looks funny. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks!
