Definition of redness:
Oft her face, Dread of her meditated crime, bleach'd pale; Oft to her eyes her furious rage supply'd A fiery redness; now her countenance glow'd With threatenings cruel; now her softening looks To pity seemed to melt; and when fierce ire Had fill'd her soul, and parch'd up every tear, Fresh tears would gush.- "The Metamorphoses of Publius Ovidus Naso in English blank verse Vols. I & II", Ovid.
- "His Own People", Booth Tarkington.
When, as they sat by the fire after the meal, warmth and fatigue moved her to a yawn and he caught the full redness of her mouth before she could cover it the intimacy of it all sent the blood drumming through his pulses.- "The Mystery of The Barranca", Herman Whitaker.
