(Write Now: American Literature in the 1980s and 1990s) _American Literature_
March 1996, v68, n1, 69+.
Abstract: 'Maus,' a comic book by Art Spiegelman focusing on the horrors of
the holocaust with cartoon type illustrations remains a puzzle for critics in
terms of placing the work into an established genre. The Pulitzer Prize
committee presented a special award to Art Spiegelman for 'Maus,' owing to
the same confusion. It is a touching and revealing portrayal of the
afflicters and the afflicted. Nazis are depicted as fierce cats, Jews as
dejected mice, and the Poles as stupid pigs. The New York Times Book Review
had earlier classified it as fiction, but changed it to non-fiction following
protest from the author.

1996, v42, n48, B7+.
Abstract: A scholar who is both a woman and a Jew ponders how to write about
her Jewish identity. She looks at criticism of noted contemporary Jewish
authors Art Spiegelman and Vivian Gornick, and finds divisiveness even among
Jewish critics. She finds that Jews are politically divided among themselves
as to what is the Jewish identity. Turning to her family history, her
grandparents have disassociated themselves from the European past. Secular
voices of Jewish women remain yet to be heard.

Rothberg, Michael. "We were talking Jewish": Art Spiegelman's 'Maus' as
"Holocaust" production. _Contemporary Literature_ Winter 1994, v35, n4, 661.
Abstract: Art Spiegelman forces a visual confrontation with the experiences
of a Holocaust survivor in his comic book 'Maus' through a modern, secular
Jewish perspective. He explores the commoditization of Holocaust stories
while not sentimentalizing the survivor. 'Maus' confronts the Holocaust from
an internal perspective, drawing the reader into the experience while
accepting the limits on representation imposed by the Holocaust itself.
