This first week I have decided to start with the role of being the line illuminator. Maus is a very common book that many people have read before, and so have I. But, it has been a long time ago since I last read it so I loved starting it again. I always found it a very interesting book, using graphic details, mouse's as characters, it's all part of a plan. Anyways, let's begin with my two quotes that I have chosen from the pages that we read from the book.
"I was in textiles-buying and selling - I didn't make much, but always I could make a living."
"It was the beginning of 1938 - before the war - hanging high in the center of town, it was a Nazi flag.."
I chose this as my second quote because this is when the Jewish people realized that there was something coming for them. Also, the way the sentence if formed. They have the symbols of subtraction (-) stating that it was before the war. What I am saying is that they are clearly saying that this happened before the war, or may be the cause of the war. Adding on, at the end of the sentence the author adds the suspicion dots (..). These dots mean a lot when you are reading because it gives a feeling inside saying that something bad is going to happen.
