The essay tackles a tripartite phenomenon: (1) the ways in which “la gastronomie”, as a generative cipher of societal norms and cultural prerogatives, has evolved from the 19th to the 20th century; (2) the residual effects of this evolution or “difference”, which, in the sphere of textuality, largely over-determines poetic and narrative structures in literary works; and (3) the impact and consequences upon writers of the post-modern era as they come to grips with the paradoxes of contemporaneity and as they struggle to negotiate earlier texts.
