Tintin in Tibet
The chapter considers Hergé’s struggles to represent absence. These struggles come to the fore in the characters’ arguments over whether the Tibetan yeti can be real as well as in Hergé’s own longing for purity in a life that had grown increasingly complex. The chapter invokes Heidegger to help explicate Hergé’s representations of empirical knowledge and the mysteries of the unknown.
