    menaced passion


    Joseph Conrad again. Could someone explain the meaning of "menaced passion"?

    "That brutality of feeling which he had known only when
    charging the enemy, sabre in hand, amazed this man of forty, who did not
    recognize in it the instinctive fury of his menaced passion."

    I read it as his passion (for the girl) being threatened/menaced by his rival.
