Abstract: In this essay, I examine the function of in the narratives of two writers who reexamine moments of great personal anguish. 6 In Maus: A Survivor's Tale, the comic book artist Art Spiegelman tells the story of his father's survival of the Nazi Final Solution, while at the same time describing his own difficulties in assimilating that story. In Preso sin nombre, celda sin numero, Argentine journalist and political activist Jacobo Timerman recounts his imprisonment during the Argentine "Dirty War." Timerman's 1981 memoir tells the story of his torture at the hands of the military dictatorship that would rule Argentina from 1976 until 1983.
