"The autumn trees, ravaged as they are, take on the flash of tattered flags kindling in the gloom of cool cathedral caves where gold letters on marbe pages describe death in battle and how bones bleech and burn far away in Indian sands."  (Virginia Woolf, To the lighthouse / übersetzt von Anne Weber, S. 27f.) Weber übersetzt mit "Kathedralenschiffe"
"He watched her eyes become guarded, her jaw hardening, her cheeks hollowing. He could tell from the tight line around her lips that mentally she was somewhere else, a dark, narrow cave that held her in its thrall, shutting him out." Shafak, The Island 276
