Publisher: Penguin Books Ltd Dimensions: 16.4 x 1.7 x 23.1 centimeters Customer Reviews: February, 2018 The Complete Maus is a Pulitzer Prize winning graphic novel by American editor and comics artist, Art Spiegelman. It is a memoir in comic form that documents recollections of the holocaust, as told by Spiegelman’s father, Polish Jew Władysław (Zeev/Wladek/Vladek) Spiegelman. The story itself is one that has been told countless times, but Spiegelman’s treatment of it makes it unique. As well as his father’s recollections, he illustrates the passing of the story between father and son, thus inserting himself (including his impatience and ingratitude) into the story. Maus I (My Father Bleeds History) runs from mid-1930s to winter 1944 and details his parents’ courtship and their experience of the war, through the German occupation and being rounded up to live in the ghetto, up until they were taken to Auschwitz. Maus II (And here my troubles began) is divided into five chapters and runs from winter 1944 until the immediate post-war period, with Artie’s history taking finishing with his father’s death. It covers his parents’ time in Auschwitz, displacement camps and their eventual reunion. As with all graphic novels, it can be difficult to distinguish between characters, especially when most of them have the head of a mouse, and sometimes the speech balloons are so small that they make reading the dialogue a challenge, particularly for readers of a certain vintage. But it is immediately clear that a great deal of work has gone into this work, and Spiegelman is obviously a very talented graphic artist, telling an important story. January, 2014 fantastic and moving holocaust tale told in an original and compelling way, brilliant! March, 2010 You'll never think of cats and mice the same way after reading this astonishing volume. Maus is an immensely affecting engagement with the Holocaust and its aftermath, the more so for being rendered (in searing blacks and whites) through the speech and action of cartoon animals. To be read - experienced - regularly. July, 2009 An absolute work of art even for readers fro normally do not read comics/graphic novels. The story telling is so captivating that after the first chapter, the little mouse/cat/pig characters start having real personalities in your mind! A must read... or shall i say sight to behold... September, 2008 I've never been the one for cartoons strips, but this book is amazing! The way Art Spiegelman tells his fathers story in such an artistic way. I've read it at least 5 times becasue There's no book in the world like it! © Copyright 2018 - SimplyBestPrices Condition: Brand new, EAN: 9780141014081, UPC: 9780141014081, ISBN: 9780141014081, Brand: Penguin Books Ltd, MPN: N/A, Format: Paperback, Language: English Insights Exclusive
