17 PreludeThe winter evening settles downWith smell of steaks in passageways.Six o'clock.The burnt-out ends of smoky days.And now a gusty shower wrapsThe grimy scraps of withered leaves about your feetAnd newspapers from vacant lots;The showers beat on broken blinds and chimney-pots,And at the corner of the streetA lonely cab-horse steams and stamps.And then the lighting of the lamps.By T.S. Eliot

21 MetonymyA figure of speech in which one word or phrase is substituted for another with which it is closely associated (such as "crown" for "royalty").Metonymy uses something more generally or loosely associated with a concept to stand in for it. When Americans speak of the Oval Office, for example, they are really referring to the activity within it, the position or function of the President. It’s a linked term, and so a metonym.British writers refer similarly to the Crown, when they’re really discussing the powers, authority and responsibilities of the monarchy, which is symbolised by the crown.“Akıllı olmazsan, o kalemi kırarlar” İbrahim Tatlıses.Çankaya, gerginliğin ardından ilk açıklamasını yaptı.
22 The pen is mightier than the sword. We have always remained loyal to the crown.
