Abstract : The Appetite for the Sea
The present paper is concerned with a peculiar kind of appetite, one whetted by the spicy oceanic context in which the subject of "craving" places himself, but nonetheless an appetite positively omnipresent. My protagonist here is the appetite for the sea, or, as the Latin etymo logy of the word would suggest, the natural desire of the sea. At the same time, however, the appetite I wish to discuss is the desire for food peculiar to the maritime, liquid context. My remarks here are thus intended to "open up" a few questions concerning
incorporation of food in excess, and its relation to the desire of appropriation of what has always been beyond human control, or - in other words - of digesting the indigestible.
