Are you sure about that word?  I looked it up, and AFAICT it means "forced feeding."  The art, OTOH, implies does the revenge she takes. 

Personally, if I had an enemy confined and he were fool enough to try a hunger strike, I not only wouldn't mind, I'd help out.  Of course, before he tried that sort of thing, he should have remembered that I love Edgar Allan Poe...and read "The Cask of Amontillado" before I was ten.   ;)

I understood "gavage" to be a euphemism for something shoved down her throat.

It might be forced, but nutrition wasn't the goal.

Ah, light dawns. 

I wouldn't want to try that myself.
