Paradise Regained, by John Milton

It focuses on the idea of ‘hunger’, but in a literal and in a spiritual sense. After wandering in the wilderness for forty days Jesus is starved of both food and the Word of God. Satan, too blind to see any non-literal meanings of the term, offers Christ food and infinite power in order to satiate his hunger, but Jesus, ‘hungering’ for the Word of God, continually denies him.
