Food for Thought

Jane Park

      Park's "Food for Thought" is an enjoyable personal narrative that ostensibly focuses on the similarities between reading and eating--in a lexia titled "Eureka!" she presents the reader with the following analogy: "reading:eating::cooking:writing;" however, I didn't make the connection when I explored her narrative. Instead I saw cooking and eating as an integral part of and symbolic of familial relationships, and reading looked mostly at canonical inclusion and exclusion--textual relationships. The benefit of hypertext is that I will almost certainly see a different relationship when next I read this work.
