This essay explores the parallels between the character of Vladek in Art Spiegelman’s Maus and certain stage incarnations of Shylock from Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice. Spiegelman’s Maus, I contend, invokes Shakespeare’s famous Jewish moneylender to challenge dominant American Holocaust memory. Invoking the theatrical tradition of representing Shylock as a credibly complex character, Maus specifically generates a counter-discourse to the paradigmatic representation of the Holocaust survivor as the flat character of hero-saint.
