Turtleback, [EAN: 9780606241816], Demco Media, Demco Media, Book, [PU: Demco Media], Demco Media, Some historical events simply beggar any attempt at description--the Holocaust is one of these. Therefore, as it recedes and the people able to bear witness die, it becomes more and more essential that novel, vigorous methods are used to describe the indescribable. Examined in these terms, Art Spiegelman's Maus is a tremendous achievement, from a historical perspective as well as an artistic one. Spiegelman, a stalwart of the underground comics scene of the 1960s and '70s, interviewed his father, Vladek, a Holocaust survivor living outside New York City, about his experiences. The artist then deftly translated that story into a graphic novel. By portraying a true story of the Holocaust in comic form--the Jews are mice, the Germans cats, the Poles pigs, the French frogs, and the Americans dogs--Spiegelman compels the reader to imagine the action, to fill in the blanks that are so often shied away from. Reading Maus, you are forced to examine the Holocaust anew. This is neither easy nor pleasant. However, Vladek Spiegelman and his wife Anna are resourceful heroes, and enough acts of kindness and decency appear in the tale to spur the reader onward (we also know that the protagonists survive, else reading would be too painful). This first volume introduces Vladek as a happy young man on the make in pre-war Poland. With outside events growing ever more ominous, we watch his marriage to Anna, his enlistment in the Polish army after the outbreak of hostilities, his and Anna's life in the ghetto, and then their flight into hiding as the Final Solution is put into effect. The ending is stark and terrible, but the worst is yet to come--in the second volume of this Pulitzer Prize-winning set. --Michael Gerber, 935052, Jewish, 935032, Ethnic & National, 934986, Biographies & Memoirs, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 935090, Holocaust, 935056, Historical, 934986, Biographies & Memoirs, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 935948, Children's Books, 937688, Action & Adventure, 10968591011, Activities, Crafts & Games, 937326, Animals, 937494, Arts, Music & Photography, 938060, Biographies, 938318, Cars, Trains & Things that Go, 938838, Children's Cookbooks, 937690, Classics, 937766, Comics & Graphic Novels, 937572, Computers & Technology, 9120764011, Early Learning, 939028, Education & Reference, 937696, Fairy Tales, Folk Tales & Myths, 937778, Geography & Cultures, 1085484, Growing Up & Facts of Life, 937588, History, 937894, Holidays & Celebrations, 938866, Humour, 937686, Literature & Fiction, 937768, Mysteries & Detectives, 938944, Religions, 937764, Science Fiction & Fantasy, 938166, Science, Nature & How It Works, 938812, Sports & Outdoors, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 928272, World War II, 15851561, Asia, 928276, Eastern Front, 15851551, Europe, 928278, Hiroshima & Nagasaki, 15851571, Home Front, 928280, Intelligence Operations, 928282, Iwo Jima, 928284, Naval, 928286, Normandy, 928288, Pearl Harbor, 928290, Personal Narratives, 928292, Stalingrad, 928294, Western Front, 928296, Women, 928258, 20th Century, 928242, United States, 928152, Americas, 927728, History, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 928630, Poland, 928504, Europe, 927728, History, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 928674, Jewish, 928678, Holocaust, 927728, History, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 928812, World War II, 15851801, Asia, 928816, Eastern Front, 15851791, Europe, 928818, Hiroshima & Nagasaki, 15851811, Home Front, 928820, Intelligence Operations, 928822, Iwo Jima, 928824, Naval, 928826, Normandy, 928828, Pearl Harbor, 928830, Personal Narratives, 928832, Stalingrad, 928834, Western Front, 928836, Women, 928712, Military, 927728, History, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 928878, World War II, 15851881, Asia, 928882, Eastern Front, 15851871, Europe, 928884, Hiroshima & Nagasaki, 15851891, Home Front, 928886, Intelligence Operations, 928888, Iwo Jima, 928890, Naval, 928892, Normandy, 928894, Pearl Harbor, 928896, Personal Narratives, 928898, Stalingrad, 928900, Western Front, 928902, Women, 928864, 20th Century, 928848, United States, 927728, History, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 690376011, Military, 15306231, History, 15306041, Humanities, 15115321, Textbooks, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books

Art Spiegelman

Title:

Maus: A Survivor's Tale, My Father Bleeds History

ISBN:

9780606241816

Some historical events simply beggar any attempt at description--the Holocaust is one of these. Therefore, as it recedes and the people able to bear witness die, it becomes more and more essential that novel, vigorous methods are used to describe the indescribable. Examined in these terms, Art Spiegelman's Maus is a tremendous achievement, from a historical perspective as well as an artistic one.

Spiegelman, a stalwart of the underground comics scene of the 1960s and '70s, interviewed his father, Vladek, a Holocaust survivor living outside New York City, about his experiences. The artist then deftly translated that story into a graphic novel. By portraying a true story of the Holocaust in comic form--the Jews are mice, the Germans cats, the Poles pigs, the French frogs, and the Americans dogs--Spiegelman compels the reader to imagine the action, to fill in the blanks that are so often shied away from. Reading Maus, you are forced to examine the Holocaust anew.

This is neither easy nor pleasant. However, Vladek Spiegelman and his wife Anna are resourceful heroes, and enough acts of kindness and decency appear in the tale to spur the reader onward (we also know that the protagonists survive, else reading would be too painful). This first volume introduces Vladek as a happy young man on the make in pre-war Poland. With outside events growing ever more ominous, we watch his marriage to Anna, his enlistment in the Polish army after the outbreak of hostilities, his and Anna's life in the ghetto, and then their flight into hiding as the Final Solution is put into effect. The ending is stark and terrible, but the worst is yet to come--in the second volume of this Pulitzer Prize-winning set. --Michael Gerber
