examine Kafkas short story A Hunger Artist

1.This week’s forum allows us to examine Kafka’s short story “A Hunger Artist,” an excerpt from Henry David Thoreau’s Walden, and three short texts by M. F. K. Fisher in detail. Each of the pieces illustrates a different philosophy about food and eating. In your initial post, identify the work to which you relate to most easily and the work that you find most challenging. Provide a brief explanation for each of the texts.

2.In your follow-up posts, delve more deeply into an analysis of the observations in the initial posts. Try to respond to posts whose authors examine different aspects of the works or different works than the ones you explored in your initial post. To take the analysis further explore the connections can you make between these short stories and our previous readings. In which texts have we encountered similar philosophies? What seem to be some significant similarities as well as differences when we examine these works side by side?

There are two parts here – an NPR (National Public Radio) commentary on Fisher’s piece “Consider the Oyster” and then the piece itself: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?story…
