Which pronoun do we use when referring to something metaphorically rather than directly?
Todd Leopold, et al., May 28, 2014 writing on CNN:
A literary voice revered globally for her poetic command and her commitment to civil rights has fallen silent.
I would think one might use the pronoun corresponding to the metaphor literary voice (it) here, rather than the personality it refers to (her).
Especially as it somehow seems interfering with the subsequent has fallen silent.
