Over the weekend I'd like for you to do a few things related to the first four sections of Persepolis. First, you should go back through and make sure that your notes are in good shape. Remember that you're supposed to be focusing on the main characters in the family as well as key moments which lead to development in the characters. Second, I'd like for you to respond to the following prompt in a solid paragraph. You can use the comments to do your paragraph (which I prefer because we can then see what we think) or you can submit your response on paper. No matter which route you choose, be sure that you use clear references to the text in order to clarify, develop, and explain your answer.
In Persepolis Marjane Satrapi makes use of light and dark imagery in her panels in order to add meaning to scenes and language. Investigate one panel (other than one we discussed today in class) and explain how the use of light and dark imagery within the panel helps Satrapi to express to the reader a larger idea within that panel or within the larger text.As you write this response, please make sure that you cite your panel so that I can refer to the text as I read your response. Identify the row, frame, and page number so that I know I'm looking at the right thing. Also, if you have any additional questions please jot those down and bring them to class on Tuesday.
