The Absurdity of Umbert
Umbert represents the unborn child who CAN'T speak for himself and for whom many refuse to speak because they refuse to recognize that he is a REAL human being. Giving a voice to the voiceless is what Umbert is all about and, if that is absurd, then I am a dyed-in-the-wool, Camusian absurdist and proud of it. God bless cartoons and cartoonists, in all their absurd glory. Sometimes, they're the only ones who make sense out of an absurd world.
