MetaMaus is an amazing "companion" to Maus Compete (or Maus 1 & 2). I use quotation marks as it includes Maus 1 and 2 on its DVD-ROM. Unfortunately, it is an unwieldy version, only available through a QuickTime program that works on PC and Mac so forget your phone, Kindle or tablet. There still isn't a proper eBook version of Maus and it's a crying shame. MetaMaus is a long interview with Art Spiegelman, the author of Maus which talks about the book, the effect of the graphic novel on his life and other people's lives as well as a broader context of his family and the events depicted in the novel. It is well written, sometimes TOO well written which detracts from the candid interview format, and features a gorgeous design where every page is different and loaded with illustrations and pictures that compliment and enhance the text. The DVD-ROM also features even more content like actual recordings of the interviews with Art's father which lead to the creation of Maus. An amazing resource for academic research and a fun read to boot for Maus fans. Recommended.
Spiegelman offers a superb contextualization of his great MAUS, with reference to artistic, moral, and biographical issues engaged in that long work. MAUS is beyond compare, of course, so MetaMaus necessary reading as well as being of compelling interest.
O livro responde a todas as perguntas que nos ocorrem quando se lê o extraordinário Maus (edição completa, I e Ii). Resultado de entrevista inteligente, com a adesão total do autor, sobre suas dúvidas, escolhas, dificuldades, e consequências psicossociais do empreendimento corajoso que lhe rendeu o Prêmio Pulitzer.
Great book and invaluable DVD - fantastic background Information for everyone who is seriously interested in Spiegelman‘s work. My copy - and I ordered and paid for a new book- is clearly second hand, or else has been handled very carelessly.
El producto está bien hecho, en el material dentro del disco compacto trae la historia original y es bastante recomendable. Si acaso lo único malo es que no es fácil insertar el disco de nuevo en el estuche que está integrado en la pasta delantera. pero no demerita para nada el producto.
