and place matter to this work? What was easy to understand and
what was difficult in relation to
cultural context and issues? What connections did you
find between issues in the
work and your own cultures
and experience? Iran Iraq Israel Childhood What aspects of technique are interesting in the work? Style of the Novel - adds another dimension to the novel
- allows the reader to visualize whats happening in the novel
-creates an emotional response within the audience
- allows the reader to connect with the main protagonist "Marji" Mirrors -Satrapi uses mirrors to portray how characters develop a sense of identity and the viewer is able to recognise how Marji’s sense of identity becomes blurred
-in may frames her face is only shown in half of the mirror - this reinforces that Marji doesn't know who she really is as she is unable to see and view her whole self from the outside. Humour

-Dark humour is used throughout the novel to distance the reader from the atrocities occuring.

-Humour also allows Satrapi to express her own personal criticisms of the people in the novel in a more subtle way

Satrapi writes:

"We can only feel sorry for ourselves when our misfortunes are still supportable...once this limit is crossed, the only way to bear the unbearable is to laugh at it" (266)

-By adding humour to these situations the they are given a new and more powerful meaning Shading

-Very common technique used within the book

-Marji’s face is shown as half dark and light

-Represents her contrasting personalities

-Emphasises the uncertainty
(concerning her sense of
self/identity) she feels as a
young female growing up
in Iran. Frames -Uses particular styles within her frames to portray different ideas e.g. squiggly lines are used to show dreams, faceless bodies shows death What caused the people of
Iran to revolt against the Shah? Class Activity Finally... How do you feel having the restrictions placed upon you by the MLC Republic? Students demonstrate and are attacked by military forces
-Uses different sized frames to draw attention to different aspects e.g. larger frames place more emphasis on certain scenes Khomeini is released and concludes that the government is illegitimate. April 7- America breaks off all relations with Iran
