The Complete MAUS

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

The Complete Maus by Art Spiegelman - the Pulitzer prize-winning Holocaust survivor story

'The most affecting and successful narrative ever done about the Holocaust'

Wall Street Journal

'The first masterpiece in comic book history' The New Yorker

The Pulitzer Prize-winning Maus tells the story of Vladek Spiegelman, a Jewish survivor of Hitler's Europe, and his son, a cartoonist coming to terms with his father's story. Maus approaches the unspeakable through the diminutive. Its form, the cartoon (the Nazis are cats, the Jews mice), shocks us out of any lingering sense of familiarity and succeeds in 'drawing us closer to the bleak heart of the Holocaust' (The New York Times).

Maus is a haunting tale within a tale. Vladek's harrowing story of survival is woven into the author's account of his tortured relationship with his aging father. Against the backdrop of guilt brought by survival, they stage a normal life of small arguments and unhappy visits. This astonishing retelling of our century's grisliest news is a story of survival, not only of Vladek but of the children who survive even the survivors. Maus studies the bloody pawprints of history and tracks its meaning for all of us.

This combined, definitive edition includes Maus I: A Survivor's Tale and Maus II.

  • Den mest skakande, men inte bästa Serie jag läst.

    En mycket stark historia berättas via en symbolisk stil. Där Judar är Möss, Nazister är Katter o.s.v. Det är en genomgående och lång berättelse, om hur en man lyckades mot alla odds överleva förintelsen. Förhållandet mellan den åldrade överlevaren och sin son fungerar som historiens bakgrund. Symboliken är smart, men när författaren slänger in sig själv, och autentiska kort rasar mycket av den goda visionen. Men historien som grund skildrar resan så detaljerat, att Maus måste klassas som den mest omskakande Serietidning jag någonsin läst. Den har hyllats stort, och säkerligen med all rätt. Men jag rycktes aldrig helt med.
