Cibo, corporeità e spiritualità in Sante Impossibili di Michèle Roberts: la visione sovversiva del sacro pasto

Risultato della ricerca: Chapter

Abstract

This paper takes into consideration the interconnections between, food, sexuality and spirituality which constitute the core of Michèle Roberts's novel Impossible Saints. We shall be focusing on the process of cannibalization of women's bodies, considering the term both in a metaphorical and in a literal sense with relation to the stories told in the novel. We shall examine the relationship between Roberts's "new" saints and food and the desecratory, macabre representations that the author offers of the sacred meal.
