Definition of gnash:
She had been present when Ivy, in her sudden fierce passions of anger, would attack the little ones viciously with her crutches, unless they had previously stolen them away; in which event she would gnash her teeth, and stamp her feet, in powerless rage, and only Laura could bring peace by banishing her tormentors.- "Peggy-Alone", Mary Agnes Byrne.
The rocks shall close all path for flight save one, 60 Where now the Troll- fiends wait to rend their prey, And each malign and monster skeleton, Reclothed with life as in the giant day When yonder seas were valleys, scent thy gore, And grin with fangs that gnash for food once more.- "The Poetical Works of Sir Edward Bulwer Lytton, Bart. M.P.", Edward Bulwer Lytton.
