Definition
to stare angrily
  • Barb Wiggin glowered back at her husband.
    p. 167.2
  • My grandmother glowered, but she would not raise her hands; she made herself listen, although I could tell it was painful for her to hear it—and that was when I heard it: the children on the high-school athletic fields.
    p. 137.9
  • There was even some scattered applause, which Grandmother quieted with a well-aimed glower; respect, in the form of awe—preferably, silent awe—was something she courted, but hand-clapping was, under the circumstances, vulgar.
    p. 239.3
