Subject(s):Sendak, Maurice

Characters and characteristics in literature
Abstract:Maurice Sendak (1928-2012) was an American writer and illustrator, best known for his book Where the Wild Things Are. His works cover fairy and folk tales, controversial titles about politics, opera scenery, adventure tales, and more. However, beyond his identity as a creator, Sendak’s work express his own Jewish identity. His works, in many ways, can be read as a specific example of a modern Jewish literary identity and the way that it uses a history and breadth of resources.
