Transcript of Persepolis vs Maus.

Similarities Cont.
In both books, people were brought together.
Marjane and Anja had their own personal ways of rebelling.
In Maus, Vladiek disguised himself as a pig when he went out. This took away the power of the cats knowing that he is a mouse.
As the oppression worsened in both books, people made small and large acts of rebellion. These acts lead to minimizing the tyrant's power.
The pictures of dead bodies captured how awfully people were dying and the despair of those who lost their love ones during the times of oppression.
In the graphic novels Persepolis and Maus, drawings are used to show events and emotions better. In both books, the characters were experiencing oppression which affected their everyday life and family.
Persepolis vs Maus.
In both books, innocent people were being beaten viciously. Both rulers used a physical force to try and control their people.
In Maus, there are pictures of hideaways that Vlakiek used to escape from the oppression.
Oppression affects relationships with each other and the world. In both books, oppression destroyed and improved relationships
Oppression can ruin someone's life. In the novel Maus by Art Spiegelman, Hitler became the dictator over Germany around 1940. He created a massive amount of propaganda to make him seem like a great leader and to make Hebrews look awful. Hitler and his Nazi's made Hebrew's lives a living hell. Protagonist, Jewish Vladiek lived through Hitler's Reign, experiencing extreme oppression.
Intro Continued
In the book Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi, young Marjane has to live through the late 1970's Iranian Revolution. In late October of 1977, people were starting to show their dislike for their leader, "The Shah." It lead to rioting and major outbreaks in the nation. Social changes were being made as events happened, causing major oppression. The similarities and differences between these 2 books are in the categories of visuals, rebellion, and relationships.
The images show the pain better than words could have
In Persepolis, there were pictures of her talking to and relying on God to escape from oppression.
In Persepolis, Marjane's uncle wore sunglasses to disguise himself as he tried to return to his home country. This took away the power of the men who wanted him out.
Anja committed suicide; She took her own life before the Holocaust could.
Marjane had her parents sneak in "punk" items like posters and a jacket into Iran.
In Persepolis, the family never gave up on each other. They stuck together through the thick and thin of the revolution.
In Maus, Vladiek allied with others to create their hideouts in the attic and the basement.
The Holocaust and the Iranian Revolution successfully took away the trust from the Vladiek & Marjane.
Vladiek does not trust his new wife. He
is always suspicious of her.
Marjane doesn't trust the world. She does
not trust God. She feels as if God betrayed her.

Maus and Persepolis are very much alike and are very much different. They both take place during times of oppression. Except in two different time periods and two different events causing the oppression. Both books use visuals to present events. In Maus some visuals are used to show hideaways; In Persepolis some visuals are used to show Marjane's imagination. Also, the books contain dauntless characters that aren't afraid to rebel against the oppression. In Maus, a character does this by suicide. In Persepolis, Marjane rebelled by sneaking items into the country. In both novels characters' relationships were affected by the oppression. It took away almost all trust for both characters but in different ways. Maus and Persepolis are both horrific stories that have many similarities and differences.
