You could also look at him continuing the story in the state he is in as a form of selfish depression due to him desperately trying to connect with his people, but can no longer handle the stress, because of the stories he was told by his father. Lastly the many bodies tat are on the floor could not only represent the lives lost in the war, but also all the personal demons he has faced at the time of publishing his novel.
In short, Art suffers from the successfulness of his work as he wears a mask to hide his self image from the world. The files, dead mice, and the jumping around timeline sets a tone that only gets deeper and depressing by the second. As imagery plays a significant role towards all of the diction Art chooses to uses. Nonetheless, the tale of a son losing his mother is the most devastating one of all. Art position into fame and losing a loved one really puts a person at stake of potientially losing there own life and unfortunately Art’s heartless heart had stopped beating.

The comic strip, “Time flies…,” shows us how Art Spiegelman feels about writing Maus through both direct statements and stylistic devices. It could be inferred that Spiegelman was both depressed and guilty. Spiegelman never got to see the holocaust, however, he was surrounded by those who were affected personally. As a result, he could tell this story about the holocaust was one born out of hardship and countless bodies. Absolutely riddled with the stench of death. Spiegelman must have felt guilty writing such a story, such a personal experience, for the wider masses, even if it wasn’t written for the money or notoriety. That’s why he didn’t want to commercialize it via TV shows or movies. However, the bodies and flies are a double entendre. As time flies by, quite literally in this case, Spiegelman has begun to visualize the holocaust more and more vividly, like he was there himself. This, coupled with the previous feelings of guilt, led to his depression.
