This essays considers one of the aspects of anger by means of a philosophical analysis of three literary works written in different epochs: the Eumenides by Aeschilus from antiquity, Michael Kohlhaas by Heinrich von Kleist from the Romantic culture, and the contemporary work Chain of Voices by André Brink. Anger is interpreted here as an energy that compels to action and as a representation of a possible transition from a vengeance logic to a justice logic. This passion is not illustrated through its possible disruptive meaning, but as a force that supports some not jet legitimate instances.
