    • 1839, Edgar Allan Poe, ‘The Fall of the House of Usher’:
      Upon my entrance, Usher arose from a sofa on which he had been lying at full length, and greeted me with a vivacious warmth which had much in it, I at first thought, of an overdone cordiality—of the constrained effort of the ennuyé man of the world.
    • 1856, Richard F. Burton, First Footsteps in East Africa, Könemann 2000, p. 49:
      You must open your doors to your friend at all hours; if when inside it suit him to sing, sing he will; and until you learn solitude in a crowd, or the art of concentration, you are apt to become ennuyé and irritable.
