Jennie Tsaralunge Assignment 2 The graphic narrative Maus I by Art Spiegelman was very interesting to read. The story is told in past and present tense, bouncing back and forth between the two. Vladek, the father, is telling his son Art the story of the Prisoners War, which was WWII and the Holocaust. I believe that the story bounces back and forth between past and present to show the differences between the times. I believe there are many underlying themes in this story, starting right at the beginning. In the beginning of the narrative, they are sitting down eating. Vladek is insisting that Art finish the food on his plate, Art begins to tell his stepmother Mala about how his father used to force him to finish all the food on his plate as a child. This is because during the Holocaust Vladek and all the other Jews had to eat every bit of food they could get their hands, which wasn’t much. This was true for many things other than food as well.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
