Hitler as a black fox?
10 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Good try but the format does not work. Comparing Hitler to classical allegory is like comparing apples and oranges. The Hitler story does not need to be compared with anything because it is incomparable. Hitler's story speaks for itself. Comparing him or his career with fictional characters in superfluous, and does injustice the latter. No character in fiction can duplicate Adolf Hitler. Hitler's story is so unique that further metaphorical embellishments serve as mere distractions. And when depicting Hitler's entourage, comparisons with fiction become ludicrous. Hitler was an orator but one need not compare him to a bellow or a megaphone, though such comparisons could be amusing. Hitler as a black fox? No way. Hitler was Hitler; leave the fox alone.
