Hunger and Modern Writing: Melville, Kafka, Hamsun, and Wright

Hunger and Modern Writing: Melville, Kafka, Hamsun, and Wright by Daniel Rees Dom
English | Dec. 20, 2016 | ISBN: 3946198163 | 160 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

Hunger is a contentious theme in modernist literature, and this study addresses its relevance in the works of four major American and European writers. Taking an in-depth look at works by Melville, Kafka, Hamsun, and Wright, it argues that hunger is deeply involved with concepts of modernity and modern literature. Exploring how it is bound up with the writer's role in modern society this study draws on two conflicting and complex views of hunger: the first is material, relating to the body as a physical entity that has a material existence in reality.

«Il primo capitolo di Moby Dick comincia con una dichiarazione non umana, ma angelica. Call me Ishmael: chiamatemi Ismaele, non già mi chiamo Ismaele. Non ha importanza il nome del protagonista narratore, ma ciò che egli simboleggia. Ismaele è l’uomo che si sa dotato di una superiorità non riconosciuta dal mondo: il primogenito di Abramo è un bastardo cacciato nel deserto, fra altri reietti; là impara a sopravvivere a questa morte, in perfetta solitudine, indurito contro le avversità». Elémire Zolla
Nella celebre traduzione di Cesare Pavese, il romanzo che più di ogni altro si avvicina alla potenza del mito.
