Abstract : This paper aims at carrying out a textual analysis of Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast with regard to identifying food and drinks as a metaphor gratifying various forms of hunger in the novel through quantitative analysis. The focus will be upon the conceptual metaphor, where meaning is derived from everyday language and thought. Hunger can be seen as a positive creative force for Hemingway and he wishes to return to his youthful days at Paris and revive the vivaciousness that was present in him. A list of food and drink items used by the author is identified and represented as a chart, depending upon its occurrence in the novel, against the various hunger forms identified to form a statistical analysis. His memories of the days, well spent, in Paris and his appetite to be the greatest author ever can be traced in this particular work. Thus, a conclusion is reached where the author discovers an incentive in the moderate procedure, regardless of it being giving oneself a chance to be eager before a meal or the journey towards being a great writer; the wait is a part of it.
