Name: Kourtni A. Brown Worksheet Maus I by Art Spiegelman (Chapter 1) Instructions: Type your answers and bring hard copy to class. 1. Spiegelman’s Maus is a complex/hybrid narrative that represents a mixture of several genres. Using the chart below, create a list of possible genres (at least 3) displayed in this piece. Using examples, explain how each genre contributes to our understanding of Maus . In other words, how do we, readers, benefit from each genre. Expand the ta- ble if needed. 2.One of the strategies Spiegelman employs to represent the story of his father Vladek is the use of anthropomorphized animals instead of humans. (Anthropomorphism is attri- bution of human motivation, characteristics, or behavior to inanimate objects, animals, or natural phenomena). Why does he use this strategy? What effect does it have on the audience? While answering these questions, keep in mind the quote that opens Maus I : “The Jews are undoubtedly a race, but they are not human” (Adolf Hitler).

    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.
