Let us then define anger as a longing, accompanied by pain, for a real or apparent revenge for a real or apparent slight,1 affecting a man himself or one of his friends, when such a slight is undeserved.

1 Gomperz translates φαινομένης “real or apparent”; Jebb omits φαινομένης and translates φαινομένην “apparent”; Cope confines both to the meaning “manifest.”
