Transcript of Persepolis
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.

Marji refers to Iran as her country, through the good and bad as she begins to find her identity.
There began to be large physical changes too which Marji noticed between the past and present.
Throughout the first part of the graphic novel, there were certain aspects included showing the West
And here again too.
Marji parents send her to a French lycée so she can express herself, as they've noticed change. While this experience was certainly different, her identity was never fully changed.

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.
