Press Reviews

Food, whether cooked or pickled or fermented or just raw, has become a topic for study and this volume adds one more angle of interdisciplinary approach in its epistemology. In their works Claude Levi-Strauss has analyzed his “culinary triangle” of raw, cooked, and rotten food in terms of universal oppositionality and Roland Barthes has seen food as a system of signs because of its rules of exclusion and association. So, it is neither frivolous nor surprising that poetry, arguably the highest form of literary art, will indulge in the depiction of food in its various aspects in verse. Quen Mob’s Tea House
