Best Beards in Literature (Book Riot)

Warning: This post contains graphic images of beards.

Book Riot put together this list of downright startling beards, attached to the faces of famous authors.

And just in case you’re the type to swoon over a healthy, unbridled mega-beard, instead of shuddering at such an abomination like the rest of us, consider these beard euphemisms used by Herman Melville in White-Jacket:

  • Fly-brushes
  • Plantations of hair
  • Nodding harvests
  • Love-curls
  • Carroty bunches
  • Redundant mops
  • Suburbs of the chin

Also, when are they going to make a horror film about Henrik Ibsen’s hexagonal facial hair?
