Abstract
Art Spiegelman’s graphic novels or “comix” books, Maus: A Survivor’s Tale (I and II), constitutes an exemplary postmodern example of the complex border-crossing of popular culture and high art, on the one hand, and autobiography, history and fictionalized narrative, on the other. Their animal allegory and self-reflexive comic book form both distance and proximate the horrific realities of the Holocaust story they tell in both visual and verbal media. While enacting postmodern challenges to the status of historical “fact” and evidence, Maus nevertheless brings the past and its witnessing to life in powerfull ways that have won it a worldwide readership.
