The Hunger Artist appears to be hungry for something other than food. This seems to be clear when he states, “Because I didn’t find a food which I enjoyed. If I had found that, believe me, I would not have made a spectacle of myself and would have eaten to my heart’s content, like you and everyone else (pg. 7).” So what is the Hunger Artist so hungry for that he continues to fast until the day he dies? The Hunger Artist decides to extend his fasting, however he dies unsatisfied with this lack of accomplishment.
When they look in the mirror, they do not see how lean and skeletal they appear, rather, they see themselves as needing to lose “just a few more pounds.” With Bulimia, a person consumes large quantities of food to numb their feelings. (Rumney 2009) However, shame and guilt creep in and start the urge to purge. They purge by means of vomiting, excessive exercising, and the use of laxatives or diuretics. Anorexia becomes readily visible once a person drops way below a normal weight. (Carolyn 2007) Yet, with Bulimics, they could appear to have a normal body weight or even appear slightly overweight.
They often committed a myriad of staggering sins and believed they were masters of perpetuity. They deviated from faith, and moved heaven and earth for their self-contentment, fulfillment of their lustful desires and attaining happiness and peace of mind and unwarily persisted not keeping in mind any future consequences which they would have to bear the brunt of and could even lead to their own bitter end. We can take examples of powerful rulers such as Sultan Suleiman I of the Ottoman Empire and Asoka who carried on committing ruinous deeds and inhumanities not caring for their consequences and were absolutely corrupt people from within. Sultan Suleiman I executed his own son, heir to the throne, himself and Asoka brutally and mercilessly slaughtered innocent men, women and children in his world
Some people, like Simon, understand this concept and he says: ‘Maybe there is a beast... maybe it’s only us.’ Other people, like Ralph, do not want to believe that there is a dark side to humanity and in Chapter 2 he constantly shouts: ‘but there isn’t a beast!’ Golding successfully gets across his message that there’s ‘darkness in man’s heart’ by the frightening way he describes several events in the book. The killing of the mother sow is an extremely shocking event in the novel. When it describes that ‘the great bladder of her belly was fringed with a row of piglets’ it shows how savage the boys have become and how much they have changed, especially Jack, because at the beginning of the novel he had difficulty killing the piglet because of ‘the enormity of the knife descending and cutting in to living flesh’ and now ‘practice had made Jack silent as the shadows.’ The quote ‘wedded to her in lust’ shows us that they specifically want the female pig and won’t rest until they have her. The scene is extremely graphic and the notion of what they are doing is terrifying. The fact that the pig went from being ‘in maternal bliss’ to ‘dim-eyed and grinning faintly’ is also terrifying, because they took something innocent and turned it into something wicked, which is essentially what happened to them.
So if the poor try to fish a meal out of the river they are forced away because this food is being wasted purposefully with no reason. Which angers the people, the wrath begins growing in their hearts. The line also speaks of the vintage, the grapes being readied to harvest for winemaking. Meaning Steinbeck wants us to harvest and use this wrath we have garnered in our hearts. If you check the notations in the back of the book, it states that the title directly references "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" as well as the Book of Revelation, "So the angel swung his sickle to the earth and gathered the clusters from the vine of the earth, and threw them into the great wine press of the wrath of God"
The fact that he quickly came up with a fib to tell in front of his guests obviously shows how used to covering up his eating problem he is. Not only is his eating considered highly improper compared to the society he is surrounded by, but Algernon's compulsive eating also reveals men’s weakness in the whole play. A key detail about Algernon's frequent and exaggerated food consumption is that it is always someone else's food, always women’s . In general, it is men, especially men in the high society, should provide food for women and guests. While ,in Algernon's case, he is always receiving food from the women around him, rather than providing for his guests .This fact also observably proves that the men’s weakness in the high society.

He asks the musicians to play on so that his ‘appetite’ might sicken and die, as is the norm when one is satiated with the excess of something. Shakespeare, in this opening speech makes use of a number of food metaphors. Orsino asks the musicians to strike up a particular part of the music again, a sad part that had a ‘dying fall’, very similar to the conflicts he seems to be going through in his pain ful, lovesick pursuit of someone who did not return his affections. Orsino’s character is one of extreme emotions, someone who exaggerated things and moaned about his bad luck, behaviour that we do not expect to see coming from a ’Duke’. Instead of representing a figure of authority and responsibility, Orsino sits and listens to his musicians playing to him, wailing about the changeable nature of love.
