Record #207237:

Starvation stories and deprivation prose: of the effects of hunger on Arctic explorers' texts / Aimée Laberge.

Title: Starvation stories and deprivation prose: of the effects of hunger on Arctic explorers' texts / Aimée Laberge.
Author(s): Laberge, Aimée.
Date: 2009.
Publisher: Umeå, Sweden: Umeå University and Royal Skyttean Society
In: Cold matters : cultural perceptions of snow, ice and cold. (2009.),
Abstract: Examines correlation between textual output and physical condition as demonstrated in diaries of Arctic explorers George DeLong, Adolphus Greely and Leonidas Hubbard. Considers effects of extreme hunger and kilocalorie deficit not only on text, but also on conventional mechanics of narrative (e.g. vocabulary, punctuation, spelling). Concludes that although Greely's diary does not explicitly so record, his expedition alone survived by eating human flesh.
