Abstract
This paper sets out to interpret the construction of social memory through reflexive strategies in three comic texts by Art Spiegelman. These texts include ›Maus I‹ and ›Maus II‹ (which tell the story of his fatherís holocaust experience) and ›In the Shadow of No Towers‹ (a personal account of his experiences on September 11th). It is proposed that Spiegelman uses strategies of reflexivity (including: authorial awareness, demystification, intertextuality, intermedia reflexivity, and reader awareness) in order to provide the reader with a contextual frame of reference for understanding how the memories of events were formed and interpreted. It is further suggested that, due to the difference in the age of the memories, reflexive strategies are used differently.
