ESSAY ON: Maus & Schinder's List

Number of Pages 5

This research paper: A 5 page essay that contrasts and compares Art Spiegelman's Maus (volumes I and II) and Steven Spielberg's film Schindler's List, which are both visually representations of the Holocaust. In both cases, the creators of these works employ the specific properties of their medium to better convey their personal vision of the meaning and reality of the horrors of genocide. Spiegelman's visual form is the graphic novel (the generic term of "comic book" seems hardly applicable). He employs text (often in the form of "bubbles" that show what characters think of say), but in addition to images, dialogue boxes and commentary, there are also maps of Poland and the camps, diagrams of hideouts, and real photographs from Spiegelman's family album. Spielberg, of course, employs cinematic tools, using sight, color, sound, music and visual effects to convey his personal sense of the tragedy. No additional sources cited.
