I don't know German, but, as far as I know, in English "inflammation", "passion", "bewilderment" and "astonishment" are not irritations, and "irritation" is not, per se, "very strong". So the only difference we have to make is between "anger" and "rage", which is a difference in intensity. In some languages, this difference is only expressed by an adjective of intensity, so that using the word "anger" in the definition would make the definition tautological in such languages.
Moreover, the ire is not only the feeling of irritation, which is internal, but its state. One can have a strong feeling without expressing it. I propose to merge your alternative definition with the existing one, in "A feeling of very strong irritation and its manifestation, intense anger (usually on an epic scale).". --Fiable.biz 05:24, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
