  • John Reed was a schoolboy of fourteen years old; four years older than I, for I was but ten: large and stout for his age, with a dingy and unwholesome skin; thick lineaments in a spacious visage, heavy limbs and large extremities.
  • This I felt sure was Eliza, though I could trace little resemblance to her former self in that elongated and colourless visage.
  • At that moment I saw the reflection of the visage and features quite distinctly in the dark oblong glass.
  • The maniac bellowed: she parted her shaggy locks from her visage, and gazed wildly at her visitors.
  • I was aware her lurid visage flamed over mine, and I lost consciousness: for the second time in my life — only the second time — I became insensible from terror.
  • Soon I had traced on the paper a broad and prominent forehead and a square lower outline of visage: that contour gave me pleasure; my fingers proceeded actively to fill it with features.
  • When I think of the thing which flew at my throat this morning, hanging its black and scarlet visage over the nest of my dove, my blood curdles.
  • I thought you would be revolted, Jane, when you saw my arm, and my cicatrised visage.
  • Diana and Mary relieved me by turning their eyes elsewhere than to my crimsoned visage; but the colder and sterner brother continued to gaze, till the trouble he had excited forced out tears as well as colour.

  • There are no more uses of "visage" in the book.
