satisfaction for wrong or injury; reparation
What a great word! We might think that it means to dress again. But then we’d be wrong. Redress is also a verb, meaning to set right; remedy or rectify; to make amends to or for.
Here is the quote from The Double: “You could almost call it a whim, of the kind to which men are said to be so easily prone, if, in the present case, the right words were not vengeance, revenge, retaliation, retribution, redress, reprisal, rancor, vindictiveness.”
