Transcript of Persepolis

Cover me
We have decided to cover the theme of identity and how it has an effect on Marji in the graphic novel. Throughout the story we see how stark contrasts in panels and Marji’s facial expressions accentuate the theme of identity.

It is clear that Marji has had difficulties when trying to find her identity. She identifies herself as Iranian, yet often searches for Western traditions to adapt in whatever way she can.

Marji refers to Iran as her country, through the good and bad as she begins to find her identity.

Yet with all these changes, Marji still remembered her roots. She had many relationships and they turned out to be had a very bad effect on her.

pg 247
And following Marji's mom visit and more disappointment involving love, Marji asked to return and much to her surprise, she was allowed to come home.
After returning 'home', Marji ironically feels alienated. Although she has identified herself as Iranian in Vienna, she feels disconnected from a world razed by war.
