✓ Maus: A Survivor's Tale: My Father Bleeds History Å Download by ✓ Art Spiegelman When I switched my major to English in my senior year, I had a lot of back classes to take, especially intro classes with freshmen and sophs, though my last intro class was a night class with primarily older women, who worked full time jobs in Edison or the Amboys and a bushel of kids waiting at home Basically, they were there to learn about literature, sort of as a self improvement class for the non literary The class was taught by a flame hair TA, who had the personality to match Yet as time went by, those last descriptive sentences I wrote became complete crap We became a class of studious literary scholars on par with any graduate program Our TA took on a Robin Williams in Dead Poet s Society aura Why, when did this happen Well, we read Maus It rocked all our socks Bes Extraordinary.
If there was a Pulitzer Prize for the BEST ALREADY winners of the Pulitzer.
Art Spieglman s books would be a very high contender.
Point is The creation of Maus exceeds expectations which you might have heard through the grapevine Maus, Vol 1 My Father Bleeds.
is painful, personal, brilliant.
,and needs to be experienced first hand as all his books do.
Then we might have a discussion still worse to come, is Vol 2 My Trouble Begins Best EPub, Maus A Survivor S Tale My Father Bleeds History By Art Spiegelman This Is Very Good And Becomes The Main Topic To Read, The Readers Are Very Takjup And Always Take Inspiration From The Contents Of The Book Maus A Survivor S Tale My Father Bleeds History, Essay By Art Spiegelman Is Now On Our Website And You Can Download It By Register What Are You Waiting For Please read And Make A Refission For You This is one of those graphic novels that everyone is telling the world to read Acclaimed as one of the best graphic novels out there My take on it is that it was really enjoyable and informative, but not the best While it was very enjoyable, I still had a few problems with it Overhyped in my opinion, but still highly recommended for me I honestly have no problem with the plot Straightforward and informative I m a huge history fan, and the topic of Nazis in general was nothing new for me It s been a while since my last read of this certain part of history This graphic novel was a good way to refresh my memory It s still very unsettling that the Nazis were this abusive back then The way they tortured the Jews and such was very inhumane I know that somewhere in the world today, people are still being abused like this, if not worse Such a shame, and quite unthinkable h Re read September 5, 2015 I think I absorbed a lot of the story and its power the second time around It s really wonderfully crafted, and I can t wait to finally read the second volume because this one ends sort of abruptly First read January 3 9, 2014 I don t read much Holocaust Literature nowadays In my teens and twenties, I read everything I could get my hands on on the Third Reich and the Middle Ages, as I had an abnormal urge to seek out the darkness in human souls I was repelled and at the same time, fascinated by it like people drawn irresistibly towards gruesome road accidents.
As I matured, this urge to torture myself diluted, and I moved on towards wholesome stuff However, I decided I would make an exception with Maus because of one important reason it is a comic, or to use the accepted terminology nowadays, a graphic novel.
The comic is a seriously underutilised narrative format Like the fairy tale and the animated movie, Disney has corrupted it and confined it to a corner where it can only babble and make baby talk It is heartening to see it breaking out of that straitjacket and maturing in books like The Complete When I was a kid I read comic books mostly Superman The Maus books are the only graphic novels I ve read and I consider them masterpieces Mausterpieces Like Spiegelman s alter ego, I was a middle class child growing up in Queens NYC , the son of Holocaust survivors and couldn t communicate with my father when I was growing up He got it down perfectly It was spot on and ranks among the best of Holocaust related literature.
It just didn t do what I wanted.
I had high expectations, my friends, I had high expectations That might not be fair, but there you go.
My biggest problem was the misused animals The book is called Maus The characters are mice and cats and pigs BUT NONE OF THEM ACT LIKE MICE OR CATS OR PIGS WHATS THE POINT In conversation with my friend Barry it came up that It s just cats chasing mice That s the extent of the metaphor He disagrees, on the whole he actually quite enjoyed this we re budding reading again, I never want to stop buddy reading with this boy , but regardless he saw my point of view I feel that there was great potential to use the animal characteristics to do interesting and inventive things, but basically they re just humans that look like animals.
I have a few other issues I don t like the way the son treats the father that won t make sense unless you I am extremely moved by this book, it is as relevant and important today as it was when it was first published over 30 years ago, possibly even so Maus tells the story of Vladek Spielgeman, a Jewish survivor of the Holocaust His son, Art Spiegelman, is an illustrator and wants to write the story of his father s experiences during World War II The story is also of Art himself, the interviews and relationship with his father.
The story alternates between the present day interviews and shifts into the past through Vladek s recollections The illustrations are straightforward and in a black and white style I highly recommend this book, it is a powerful and emotional story I am starting the second volume right away.
FINAL NOTE below is what I found to be one of the most powerful scenes in the book.
But I digress Despite having already read a great deal about WWII, one of the things I especially liked about the Maus books was hearing how Spiegelman s father managed to survive His father was gifted at quickly mastering skills and b
