Abstract: The present paper is concerned with a peculiar kind of appetite, one whetted by the spicy oceanic context in which the subject of “craving” places himself, but nonetheless an appetite positively omnipresent. My protagonist here is the appetite fo r the sea, or, as the Latin etymology of the word would suggest, the natural desire o f the sea. At the same time, however, the appetite I wish to discuss is the desire fo r food peculiar to the maritime, liquid context. My remarks here are thus intended to “open up” a few questions concerning incorporation of food in excess, and its relation to the desire o f appropriation of what has always been beyond human control, or - in other words - of digesting the indigestible.
