Aaron Allen October 18, 2011 ENGL 2024 Mid-Term Writing Assignment In a short story named “A Hunger Artist” there is a man that travels town to town with the impresario, who is basically his manager. The man goes by the name of “The Hunger Artist”, he fasts for a living which means he goes without eating, and the time usually being in spans of forty days. The people of the towns try to break him and at times make a mockery of him. All The Hunger Artist wants is to gain the admiration of the people for his talents of being able to fast. Fasting has a religious symbolism cause the Hunger Artist situation is reflective of what Jesus went through going town to town performing miracles and people rejecting him and fasting forty days. A depictive reading of “A Hunger Artist” reveals that the text uses modernism by a time of radical change, a loss of hope, and findings of new truth.
