    seethe with indignation

    Hi,

    What does this sentence mean?

    She seethed with indignation.

    Does it mean "She got mad about something and couldn't calm down"?

    Thanks a lot

    Yes, that's pretty much right. 'Seethe' and 'indignation' have their usual dictionary meanings in this phrase. She became indignant and angry about something and had trouble "letting go" of the feeling.
