Objects of Disgust

Objects of Disgust

A Moveable Feast and the Modernist Anti-Vomitive

(p.135) Chapter Eight Objects of Disgust

Michel Delville

Andrew Norris

Liverpool University Press

The Hemingway who remembers his Paris days in A Moveable Feast attributes the experiences to his former self, a young writer who, though he frequented Pound, Ford, Joyce, Lewis and Stein, was forging an aesthetic vision to supersede the grand experiments of the high modernists even as they were coming to fruition around him. This chapter explores the edible objects, the tastes they inspire and confirm, the conduits they open between the physical and the psychological or philosophical—together with the darknesses they reveal and temporarily resolve—as the quilting points of A Moveable Feast. Special attention is paid to Hemingway’s troubled and uneasy relationships with Lewis and Stein and their interaction with the gustatory obsessions of A Moveable Feast. Such issues are central to the permutations and interpenetrations of the emotional and the aesthetic which determine the cultural and gender politics of Hemingway’s memoir, of which the food porn of A Moveable Feast is both a symptom and a critique.
