The Raw and the Cooked


The Raw and the Cooked

"The Raw and the Cooked" is the title of a volume from Mythologiques I-IV written by French anthropologist Claude Lévi-Strauss. The original French title was "Le Cru et le cuit".

*"Mythologiques I-IV" (trans. John Weightman and Doreen Weightman
**"Le Cru et le cuit", 1964, The Raw and the Cooked, 1969
**"Du miel aux cendres", 1966, From Honey to Ashes, 1973
**"L'Origine des manières de table", 1968, The Origin of Table Manners, 1978
**"L'Homme nu", 1971, The Naked Man, 1981)

The English translation of "Le cru et le cuit" by Claude Lévi-Strauss, is not incorrect, but it is perhaps incomplete. "Cuit" in French does not necessarily mean "cooked", but is also used to denote "done" , which is not necessarily obtained by cooking. Strawberries, for instance, may be "cuit" (done) because they were standing in sugar.
