A short list, from which I’ve bolded some of the more delicious ones:
RESENTMENT, displeasure, animosity, anger, wrath, ire, indignation, exasperation, vexation, bitter resentment, wrathful indignation.
Pique, dudgeon, acerbity, virulence, acrimony, asperity, spleen, gall, heartburning, heart-swelling, rankling.
RAGE, fury, towering rage, passion, paroxysm, fire and fury, vials of wrath, gnashing of teeth, hot blood.
UMBRAGE, affront, provocation, offense, indignity, red rag, casus belli…and
