Jane Eyre

I recognised his decisive nose, more remarkable for character than beauty; his full nostrils, denoting, I thought, choler; his grim mouth, chin, and jaw—yes, all three were very grim, and no mistake. His shape, now divested of cloak, I perceived harmonised in squareness with his physiognomy”
Thank you for this.

For the record like, Minervascat I was also a fan of Snape long before Rickman was ever even cast in the role.
Even though I saw the first couple of the movies before I read the books, it was book Snape that I found fascinating. IMO, with each book he became more and more interesting.
