Myths and Stereotypes in "Asterix le Gaulois"
Pinet, Christopher
Canadian Modern Language Review, 34, 2, 149-62, Jan 78
A discussion of "Asterix," the comic book series, and an analysis of its use of myths and stereotypes usually associated with the French. Some of these are: their love of food, individualism and spirit of resistance, sense of "Frenchness," and "esprit." Goscinny succeeds in making these stereotypes universal in application. (AMH)
