Introduction to Persepolis
   1. According to the introduction, what
    stereotypical image is Satrapi trying to
    dispel?

   2. The author indicates two motives for
    writing Persepolis. What are they?
Marjane Satrapi
From lsu.edu

Born in 1969 in
Iran

She grew up in
Tehran in a
progressive
family.

Wrote Persepolis.
Who is Marjane Satrapi?
   Marjane Satrapi is a graphic novelist and
    illustrator. She attended the Lycée Français
    there and witnessed, as a child, the growing
    oppression of civil liberties and the everyday life
    consequences of Iranian politics, including the
    fall of the Shah, the early regime of Ayatollah
    Khomeini and the first years of the Iran-Iraq
    war. From Biographybase.com
Why did she write Persepolis?
   Satrapi said she hoped Persepolis would
    combat the negative images people had of
    her native country. When the Iranian
    Revolution broke out, most people in the
    West only saw images of the revolutionary
    leaders, which did not reflect the lives of
    ordinary Iranians, she said.
Why did she write Persepolis?
   "If people are given the chance to
    experience life in more than one country,
    they will hate a little less," she wrote on
    the Pantheon website. "That is why I
    wanted people in other countries to read
    Persepolis, to see that I grew up just like
    other children."
What does she want to tell
young Iranians?
 She also said she hoped to find a way to
  get the book to young Iranians, perhaps
  through the Internet, so that more of
  them could learn the truth about what
  happened in their country in the early
  1980s.
 From notablebiographies.com
Persepolis: Award Winner
from notablebiographies.com
   The book won two of Europe's biggest
    awards for comic books and graphic
    novels, the Angouleme International
    Comics Festival's Coup de Coeur award
    and the Prix du Lion from a comics
    association in Belgium.
Persepolis: US Reaction
from notablebiographies.com
   It earned an endorsement from leading
    American feminist Gloria Steinem.
    Edward Nawotka, called Persepolis "one
    of the quirkiest, most entertaining
    memoirs in recent years." Dave Welch
    said it "expressed in deceptively simple
    black-and-white drawings the broken
    heart and crushed hope of a people."
Key Terms
 Cultural Revolution
 Persian Empire
 Shah
 Reza
 sanctions
Why is the book called
Persepolis?
   Why does Satrapi call her book
    Persepolis instead of something like
    Growing Up in Iran?
Chapter 2: The Bicycle
 On page 10, Marjorie’s friend says “The
  Revolution is like a bicycle. When its
  wheels don’t turn, it falls.” What does she
  mean by this?
 Is a revolution a good thing? Why or why
  not?
Chapter 2: The Bicylce
 Turn to page 11.
 What is Iran’s history? Who controlled
  Iran? How might this history impact Iran?
Chapter 2: The Bicycle
   At the end of the chapter, Marjane asks to
    demonstrate against the government.
    Would you let your child demonstrate and
    be “a part of history” or would you make
    her stay at home for safety’s sake?

    explain citizens’ acceptance of Islamic
    rule?

    class in Iranian society, especially, for
    example, in the story of the courtship
