The person-to-person contact, like the quivering hesitations of the pen, witnessed the chuckling, living intelligence behind his parodies. They were meant to contrast with the systematic minds and impersonal stereotypes that his stories caricatured. The handwritten captions, the lively arabesques of the frames in which he enclosed his little doodled actors, were part of the same counterpoint: in a cursive, breathing imitation of spoken speech, they contrasted starkly with the academic postures, compulsive errands, and repetitive actions of his comical creatures.
For Töpffer, representation is never a goal in itself (which one can approach by slowly perfecting technique or theory) but always a means to an end: “The artist sees, he feels, and wants to express what he feels; imitation offers a means for that goal: that is art” (Töpffer 1998, 160–163). In other words, no reason in the world should stop a poet from expressing his deepest sentiment within a descriptive poem if he feels like it. To declare, like Lessing did, that the imitation of a progressive action is the only mode worthy of poetry because action represents the most rational use of the imitative possibilities of language was, in Töpffer’s view, tantamount to cutting the wings of poetry.
Precisely because of this lack of artistic conception, which is to the detriment of their spirit, a soldier, for example, is seen and understood only by his uniform: the rows of buttons, the shoulder strap, the pompom, the distinctive signs of the army, the regiment, the company. . Such doodled figures are created from a purely imitative instinct, if you want, and even then, this instinct is limited to exterior signs of organization, of rules, of measure, of division; it doesn’t care for a real sensitive and expressive imitation of the object” (Töpffer 1998, 258; italics added).
