This chapter considers other theorists’ analyses of the doctrine of provocation, and the concepts of anger than underpin those analyses. It looks at the moral aspects of retaliation in anger upon provocation, and the degree of blame to be attached to departure from a mean, right, or proper degree of retaliation. These other aspects are the meaning of ‘grave’ provocation and the fate of the victim’s body.

Keywords:   grave provocation, body’s fate, moral aspects, retaliation, gravity of provocation
