2 Transport, ravish, enrapture, entrance can all mean to carry away by strong and usually pleasurable emotion.
Transport need not suggest that the transporting emotion is joy or delight; it may be an emotion (as rage, amazement, fear, or wonder) strong enough to exceed ordinary limits; usually, the term implies excessive agitation or excitement
