Estudos da Tradução, James Joyce


In its many guises, sandwich is present in most cultures. The word “sandwich” appeared first in the journal of Edward Gibbons.1 Sandwich is named after John Montague (1718-1792), the Fourth Earl of Sandwich, who, as the lore has it, during a prolonged gambling binge that precluded dinner, “ordered his valet to bring him meat  tucked between two pieces of bread. Because Montague also happened to be the Fourth Earl of Sandwich, others began to order ‘the same as Sandwich!’ The original sandwich was, in fact, a piece of salt beef between two slices of toasted bread”.
