Tintin and the Secret of Literature

Arguing that the Tintin books' characters are as powerful and their plots as advanced as any dreamed up through the good novelists, Tom McCarthy asks an easy query: Is Tintin literature? Taking a cue from Tintin himself — who spends a lot of his time monitoring down illicit radio signs, coming into crypts, and deciphering puzzles — McCarthy means that we too have to “tune in” and decode if we wish to trap what is going on in Hergé's terribly renowned paintings. What emerges from McCarthy's exam of Tintin is a notable tale of illegitimacy and deceit, in either Hergé's paintings and his circle of relatives background. McCarthy's irresistibly smart, tightly built e-book exhibits how the topics Tintin generates — expulsion from domestic, violation of the sacred, the host-guest courting became bitter, and anxieties round questions of forgery and fakes — are an analogous that experience fueled and afflicted writers from the classical period to the current day.
