Write an essay using the following quote.
Spiegelman had this to say about his work:
“Maus, my comic book about my parents’ life in Hitler’s Europe, which uses cats to represent Germans and mice to represent Jews, was made in collaboration with Hitler.  (Now will I have to share my Pulitzer?)  It was the Nazis’ idea to divvy the human race into species, into Ubermenschen and Utermenschen, to “exterminate” (as opposed to murder) Jews like vermin, to use Zyklon B–a pesticide–in the gas chambers.  My anthropomorphized mice carry trace elements of Fip’s anti-Semitic Jew-as-rats cartoons for Der Sturmer, but by being particularized they are invested with personhood; they stand upright and affirm their humanity.  Cartoons personalized; they give specific form to stereotypes.  In Maus, the mouse heads are masks, virtually blank, like Little Orphan Annie’s eyeballs–a white screen the reader can project on.
In making Maus I found myself drawing every panel, every figure, over and over–obsessively–so as to pare it down to an essence, as if each panel was an attempt to invent a new word rough-hewn but streamlined.  Every panel had to become the shortest definition of itself.  It’s what images aspire to, and what is meant by the old saw, “A picture is worth a thousand words.”  actually, in comics, as well as in other cases where words and pictures combine, the words often function to constrict the pictures’ open-endedness.  A picture with a twenty-five-word caption may be worth only 375 words.”
Discuss the use of Iconic faces in Art Spiegelman’s graphic novel Maus.  Why does he draw his characters this way?  Contrast that with his use of photographs and his depictions in the comic Prisoner on the Hell Planet.  Why does he use realism to draw these characters?
Other requirements:
Remember, this is a take home test, therefore you may use your lecture notes and the reading material to write your essay. As a result, you have the ability to be very specific about your interpretation.
