Maus by Art Spiegelman

  1. What is the author’s purpose in writing the novel? Part of this may be
    inferred by you, while other parts should rely on outside evidence such as
    interviews with, or articles by the author.
  2. What effect does the medium (graphic novel) have on the story? You may
    want to discuss other mediums (film/play) the author has used to tell this
    story, or other mediums that the author considered.
