“I solemnly swear to tell the truth and nothing but the truth.” But what is truth? No possible way exists for there to be a completely unfiltered recollection of the past. Whether consciously or not, events can be warped and distorted into stories with exaggerated details, fragmented incidents, and whatever specifics keep the self image we feel the need to maintain. All of these elements are seen throughout Maus, with both Art, the author, and Vladek Spiegelman exemplifying complications of truth. The subtle and not so subtle instances of truth manipulation can consistently be seen throughout the books, which cause the questioning of what can be considered reality in all literature. Whether consciously or not, truth is manipulated in literature, since perfect memories cannot be recalled, as seen in Maus.

This proves that everybody can remember something about the events that they have experienced. In the story, when Father Mancuso’s friends ask him “Don’t you remember the DeFeos, Frank?” (21), it shows that his friends not only expected Father Mancuso to remember the incident but they themselves can recall the case. Father Mancuso has memories as well when he “remembers he had an urge, bordering on obsession, to call the Lutzes and warn them to stay out of the room at all cost” (56). When Kathy is checking on

The Life of Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino By: Ben Mikus (5/1/16) Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino, otherwise known as Raphael Sanzio of Urbino, was born on April 6, 1483 in Urbino, Italy. When he was young, his father, Giovanni Santi, was his role model, being a painter for Federigo da Moantefeltro, the Duke of Umbria. When he was eleven years old, Giovanni died and Raphael took up his father’s jobs of painting and managing the workshop. When he was only 17, Pietro Vannunci, better known as Perugino, offered him a job as apprentice. Raphael agreed and was excited to gain both knowledge and a hand-on experience. In the four years that the apprenticeship lasted, Raphael painted many religious works including: the Mond Crucifixion (c. 1502), The Three Graces (c. 1503), The Knight’s Dream (1504), and the Marriage of the Virgin (finished in 1504).
