Description

Gregory Nagy analyzes metonymy as a mental process that complements metaphor.

If metaphor is a substitution of something unfamilar for something familiar, metonymy connects something familiar with something else already familiar.

Nagy offers close readings of over one hundred examples of metonymy in the arts of Greek and other cultures.
