Epic Literary Mustaches

I think we can all agree, dear readers, that mustaches are epic. They often represent the epitome of the “manly man,” while simultaneously offering us a little bit of fun, light-hearted humor, especially if the mustache in question happens to be particularly old fashioned and/or silly. Take, for instance, this photograph of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle rocking his ‘stache:


Doesn’t that brighten up your day just a little bit? I know it does for me. Because of this, I’ve compiled a list of some of the most epic mustaches in English literature, because I want to ensure that you, dear readers, have a fun start to an equally fun October weekend.

Before we get started, here’s a fun little trivia fact:  the American spelling is “mustache,” while the British spelling is “moustache.” Just one of the many differences between American and British English, along with punctuation differences and that every contested word, “football.” Isn’t that fun?

Alright, without further ado, here are literature’s epic mustaches. Enjoy!
