English term or phrase: clad in inky robes
Articolo pubblicato sul Guardian, si parla del nuovo libro di Harry Potter e di personaggi morti. La frase è questa:
'The deaths scattared through the previous Potter novels return in their (the characters') minds to produce a prevailing mournfulness. Psychologically speaking, most are clad in inky robes.'
Capisco il significato letterale ma mi chiedo se ci sia un altro modo di interpretare la frase. Questo Psychologically speaking mi spiazza...
Ancora una volta, si tratta solo di un esercizio di preparazione ad un esame.
Grazie!

agree  Francesca Callegari: la frase rende bene; psicologicamente parlando si tratta di incapacità di elaborare il lutto, ma all'interno del contesto vestiti a lutto sta molto bene. ciao, buon anno nuovo!

agree  Gianluigi Desogus, PhD: vestiti a lutto mi piace, ma sono le menti a essere metaforicamente (psychologically speaking) "vestite a lutto" piuttosto che i personaggi, no? O ho interpretato male la frase?
