Download and read online Are You My Mother in PDF and EPUB Alison Bechdel's Fun Home was a literary phenomenon: 'an extraordinarily intimate account of family secrets that manages to be shocking, unsettling and life-affirming at the same time', as Sarah Walters wrote in the Guardian. The Times said it was 'incontestibly the graphic book of the year', while the Observer recently chose it as one of the ten best graphic novels ever published. While Fun Home explored Bechdel's relationship with her father, a closeted homsexual, this new memoir is about her mother - a voracious reader, a music lover, a passionate amateur actor. Also a woman, unhappily married to a gay man, whose artistic aspirations simmered under the surface of Bechdel's childhood... and who stopped touching or kissing her daughter goodnight, for ever, when she was seven. Poignantly, hilariously, Bechdel embarks on a quest for answers concerning the mother-daughter gulf. It's a richly layered search that leads readers from the fascinating life and work of psychoanalyst Donald Winnicott to one explosively illuminating Dr Seuss illustration, to Bechdel's own (serially monogamous) love life. And, finally, back to Mother - to a truce, fragile and real-time, that will move and astonish all adult children of gifted mothers.

Download and read online Graphic Subjects in PDF and EPUB Some of the most noteworthy graphic novels and comic books of recent years have been entirely autobiographical. In Graphic Subjects, Michael A. Chaney brings together a lively mix of scholars to examine the use of autobiography within graphic novels, including such critically acclaimed examples as Art Spiegelman’s Maus, David Beauchard’s Epileptic, Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis, Alan Moore’s Watchmen, and Gene Yang’s American Born Chinese. These essays, accompanied by visual examples, illuminate the new horizons that illustrated autobiographical narrative creates. The volume insightfully highlights the ways that graphic novelists and literary cartoonists have incorporated history, experience, and life stories into their work. The result is a challenging and innovative collection that reveals the combined power of autobiography and the graphic novel.

Download and read online Die r umlichen kreativen Lebens und Arbeitsbereiche in Alison Bechdels Fun Home in PDF and EPUB Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2016 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Komparatistik, Vergleichende Literaturwissenschaft, Note: 1,0, Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn, Veranstaltung: Raumdarstellung im Comic, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Thema dieser Ausarbeitung sind die (räumlichen) kreativen Lebens- und Arbeitsbereiche in Alison Bechdels ‚Tragicomic’ „Fun Home“. Der Fokus wird besonders auf der Darstellung der Schreibtische und der Bibliothek liegen: Wer und was ist dort zu sehen, wie sind diese Bereiche dargestellt; unterscheiden sie sich signifikant von anderen Darstellungen im Comic oder gibt es womöglich auffällige Parallelen zwischen diesen oder anderen Panels? Zweiter Schwerpunkt der Ausarbeitung wird die dargestellte Lektüre der Figuren sein: Wer liest was, wie und wo. Da besonders literarische Bezüge in „Fun Home“ elementar sind und prosaische und dramatische Werke bei den bedeutungstragenden Paratexten wesentlicher sind als lyrische, beschränkt sich die Betrachtung auf explizit literarische Werke eben solcher Art. Die Rezeption von journalistischen Inhalten wie etwa des „Time Magazine“ oder der „GQ“ wird wegen fehlender Literarizität ebenso wenig Teil der Untersuchung sein wie die von Arthur Mizener verfasste Fitzgerald-Biografie „The Far Side Of Paradise“ oder Wallace Stevens’ Gedichtsammlung „Harmonium“, die als Sachbuch bzw. Lyrik nicht in die zu untersuchende Kategorie fallen. Damit soll jedoch natürlich nicht unterstellt werden, dass bspw. der Watergateskandal um Nixon, der auch mittels verschiedener Titelblätter in die Handlung eingebracht wird, weniger bedeutungstragend wäre, als einer der zu untersuchenden Texte. Obwohl es sich bei „Fun Home“ um eine nicht fiktionalisierte, autobiografische Erzählung handelt, werden Erzählinstanz, Autorin und Hauptfigur nicht als Einheit verstanden. Innerhalb der Ausarbeitung werden die extradiegetisch verstandene Erzählinstanz als ‚Erzählinstanz’, die Autorin als (Alison) ‚Bechdel’ und die Hauptfigur lediglich als ‚Alison’ bezeichnet werden. Außerdem wird auf „Fun Home“ überwiegend als eine ‚Erzählung’ referiert werden, da der Terminus sowohl die visuelle wie auch die textuelle Darstellung einschließt und keine Unterscheidung anderer Begrifflichkeiten - wie etwa ‚Comic’ im Gegensatz zu ‚Graphic Novel’ - erforderlich macht.

Download and read online Outside the Box in PDF and EPUB We are living in a golden age of cartoon art. Never before has graphic storytelling been so prominent or garnered such respect: critics and readers alike agree that contemporary cartoonists are creating some of the most innovative and exciting work in all the arts. For nearly a decade Hillary L. Chute has been sitting down for extensive interviews with the leading figures in comics, and with Outside the Box she offers fans a chance to share her ringside seat. Chute’s in-depth discussions with twelve of the most prominent and accomplished artists and writers in comics today reveal a creative community that is richly interconnected yet fiercely independent, its members sharing many interests and approaches while working with wildly different styles and themes. Chute’s subjects run the gamut of contemporary comics practice, from underground pioneers like Art Spiegelman and Lynda Barry, to the analytic work of Scott McCloud, the journalism of Joe Sacco, and the extended narratives of Alison Bechdel, Charles Burns, and more. They reflect on their experience and innovations, the influence of peers and mentors, the reception of their art and the growth of critical attention, and the crucial place of print amid the encroachment of the digital age. Beautifully illustrated in full-color, and featuring three never-before-published interviews—including the first published conversation between Art Spiegelman and Chris Ware—Outside the Box will be a landmark volume, a close-up account of the rise of graphic storytelling and a testament to its vibrant creativity.
