Persepolis II

Final Project

By: Karolina Wojciak


1st Period Honors English
After a close reading of Persepolis II
by Marjane Satrapi, the thematic topic
that stands out is family.

The universal truth that I get about


this topic is “your family many not
always understand what your going
through, but there always stand by
you.”
The first key event that begins the
development of the thematic statement
occurs when Marjane moves in with
Julie and her mother. Her mom
welcomes her with open arms. Her
mom leaves for a business trip and
Julie decides to throw a party. Julie
ends up sleeping with her 19th guy after
the party.

The second key event that begins the
development of the thematic statement
occurs when Marji returns home and all
her friends and family expect to see
Marji very successful in Austria. That
her life was easy and perfect, but she
wanted it them to understand that while
they were in a war she was also having
a hard time.

from her family so long. The author’s
writing style of adding this statement
during MArji’s conversation with her
family informs us of how Marji is feeling
towards what she is going through.

The last key event that begins the
development of the thematic statement
occurs when Marji’s grandmother is
mad that Marjane had sent an innocent
man to prison, especially since her
grandpa had spent ⅓ of his life in
prison being an innocent man.
