“In part 1, I will introduce the world of Krazy Kat and the comic medium, focusing on its political economy and form. I will also explore the idiosyncratic symbolic relation between law and desire native to Herriman’s work. In part 2, I will examine the ideas and aesthetics of the Surrealists, paying particular attention to the aspects of their work which managed to migrate across the Atlantic. Here, I will also explore in what vein Krazy Kat has been labelled surreal by critics, not in the hope of proclaiming Krazy Kat a Surrealist work but rather to pinpoint a frame wherein Surrealist ideas may illuminate the comic. In part 3, I will outline the ideas surrounding the rise of legal realism against legal formalism in America, laying bare the legal surrealist space that was created in the process. Overall, my hope is to capture the legal surrealist composition of Krazy Kat, a vision that foregrounds the aporia within law as an essential and inherent aspect of its surreal structure.” (38)
