Example text

Watterson’s absent gesture — the world that Calvin occupies — provides a space wherein the imagination is free to look for meaning on its own terms. According to Clark, the text thus remains “in a realm of discomfort, [with a] lack of assurance and uncertainty, but also ... ”47 Even when the strip is no longer written, it continues to lie between the author and the reader, and therefore encourages the process whereby the reader’s imagination mirrors Calvin’s exploration. The reader, then, must follow in Calvin’s footsteps and cease any attempt to find in those footsteps a specific imprint from Watterson’s own imagination.

A specific example will help to clarify the methodological point at hand. The strip dated March 6, 1994, brings together two discordant worlds. In the first frame Calvin sticks out his tongue in disgust in response to the mound of green food in front of him. After poking the food with his fork in the second frame, the food comes alive in the third frame. An imaginative reframing or departure from what is on the dinner table is a conceit that Watterson uses frequently. 95 One could offer an analysis of this literary condensation that follows in Beck’s footsteps.

The decision to accept this basic conceit is, for the reader, not a simple suspension of disbelief. The dual nature that characterizes Hobbes requires an acquiescence that is hardly simple. Traversing Calvin and Hobbes is, as will be discussed in more detail in the following chapters, a reading that exhibits the distinct willingness to confront a reading of the human condition that is far from simple. 58 Hobbes, then, emphasizes the importance of context for reading Calvin and Hobbes imaginatively.
