featureless & grandeur

Quotations:

Complete Works of Virginia Woolf:

their featureless faces work with passion; Gynecia, realizing that she loves her daughter's lover, foams into grandeur, "crying vehemently Zelmane help me, O Zelmane have pity on me"; and the old King, in whom the beautiful strange Amazon has awakened a senile amorosity, shows himself old and foolish, looking "very curiously upon himself, sometimes fetching a little skip, as if he had said his strength had not yet forsaken him".

Definitions:

featureless:
without any qualities or noticeable characteristics;

grandeur:
1. the quality of being great and impressive in appearance;
2. the importance or social status sb has or thinks they have;
