Art Spiegelman's Maus: A Survivor's Tale: A Bibliographic Essay

This bibliographic essay on Art Spiegelman's Maus: A Survivor's Tale serves as a broad survey of Maus criticism based on ten thematic categories such as trauma, postmemory, generational transmission, and the use of English. As much as this essay examines the wide range of scholarly interests surrounding Maus, it also highlights the problem of repetitive concentration on certain themes that dominates and restricts discussion on the text. This overview of Maus criticism thus not only provides a useful summary of the studies currently available, but also serves as a suggestive guide for future scholars in their attempts to broaden and enrich the field with an eye on expanding the critical discourse.
