Summary
Hunger is one of the governing metaphors for literature in the late 19th and 20th centuries. Beginning in the mid-19th century, writers and critics repeatedly describe writing as a process of starvation, as in the familiar type of the starving artist, and high art as the rejection of 'culinary' pleasures. 'The Art of Hunger' argues that this metaphor offers a way of describing the contradictions of aesthetic autonomy in modernist literature and its late-20th-century heirs. This book traces the emergence of a tradition of writing it calls the 'art of hunger', from the origins of modernism to the end of the 20th century
