I understand it, I'm dumb. I don't get LitCrit that takes seemingly tenuous strands and proceeds to tie conjecture upon conjecture into a weirdly non-cohesive book. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for Oedipal castration of the father figure- cut away baby! I'm all about champagne equaling sex (though I don't drink it anymore-hmm). I'm all for a Manichaean period of Tintin's existence. However, I'm not sold on the arguments in this book.

Another book which I really bought because of the cover - it’s a scene from the Red Sea Sharks where Tintin and Haddock return from Arabia and is run over by a Calculus on skates. The book, which is a really well researched academic treatise, investigates the psychological angles of the various Tintin stories with Herge and the history in perspective. I guess it would be an interesting read to some -- but it’s a bit too heavy with interpretation from the author’s pov.
I do wish I could give this book a higher review. The historical background and archival research that went into this book are both superbly done, and I learned a good deal about the various edits and revisions that Hergé made to the Tintin series -- especially after the war. However, the deeply Freudian literary analysis that makes up the bulk of the book is simply too strained for me to take seriously. Worth looking at nonetheless, but...really, far too much Freud.
