In this Tracing Maus assignment, I choose two pages: the Prisoner on the hell planet page, which tells us about Anja’s death, and the Poisonous decision page, which tells us about the Richieu’s death. These pages have lots of similarities, but at the same time, they are completely different. Among the differences, I found the People Vs. Animals very striking and interesting one. However, in the Two major losses in Vladek’s life and The situations are not under Vladek’s control I choose two main themes and attributes that link these two pages together. In my opinion, the fact, that any two pages in the book can be linked to each other in various ways and have a lot of differences and similarities to talk about is fascinating!
