Poetry - Is there a relationship between food and poetry?

Read the blog, “What Does Food Have to Do with Poetry?” by Dorothy Chan. Link is here:

Next, on the Academy of American Poets website, do a search for “food” as a subject. (You will get many dozens of results, some more on-topic than others.)
Last, search for “Poetry and Food” as a topic on the Poetry magazine website. Try this link:

topic: Agree or disagree with Chan—is there a relationship between food and poetry? If so, what is it?Review critical articles, cite poems, and do a thorough job of supporting or refuting her position. This is not about opinion, but evidence. Ancillary material, such as the movie Like Water for Chocolate, may be helpful as well, but the main material should be from serious poetry and criticism, not pop culture or personal interviews.

Note: Be cautious about citing poetry not from the Poetry magazine website or the Academy of American Poets website; there is a lot of crap available online. Just because it turns up on a search with “poetry” in the title does not mean it meets the standards for this course.
