English term or phrase: breast-beating
Hy guys,
could you suggest to me a synonym of "breast-beating" as an adjective? Or a translation in Italian?

"It's a brest-beating diatribe against the fate".

Thanks

vehement > veemente


Explanation:
E' una veemente diatriba contro il fato.

Solo un suggerimento!

Potrebbe essere anche "accorata", ma la connotazione di sfogo è minore.

Asker: Anch'io avevo pensato ad "accorato", ma mi manca sempre quel "senso di colpa".

contrito / mea culpa


Explanation:
Tutta l'espressione "brest-beating diatribe" potrebbe essere tradotto con "un polemico mea culpa contro / un mea culpa in polemica con", se funziona nel testo.

Beh, visto che la tua nota chiarisce che non c'è un necessario senso di colpa - ah, benedetta contestualizzazione delle domande! ;-) - che ne dici di "plateale"?
