Under The Lens – Bemuse Etymology

Bemuse and amuse both come from muse (to be absorbed in thought) Amuse initially meant to divert the attention in order to mislead but now means entertain. Bemused still can mean lost in thought or preoccupied but it is more often used as a synonym of confused or puzzled.
