the Text and film I choose is ( Chocolate) which is you going to watch this week
and the another text is (like water for chocolate)
Select two of the texts/films we have covered this term for a comparison. What is the significance of a particular food or food related imagery, theme, or any other literary device the two texts share? For example, if you are interested in exploring texts that examine a particular philosophy about which foods we should eat, the excerpts from Pythagoras and Thoreau’s Walden in which reasons for adhering to a vegetarian diet are discussed will make an interesting pairing of texts.
