  • The author was 9 years old when it started. the Islamic revolution started, Muslim Fundamentalist took power. → The text was set b/w the years 1979-1994 and the people of Iran drastically changed from being a western influenced citizens to a religiously oppressed people 
  • The text mainly focuses on how the identities and cultures of the Iranians were affected due to political and religious power + society values 
  • The author targets the younger generations and she write the novel in flashback in first point of view.– More personal approach is also used by the author in order to convey a deep sorrow of war and losing freedom
  •  the symbol of Veil; in Persepolis, one’s physical appearance becomes pivotal and the author also becomes really stressed by the way she looked because no one wanted her or ever loved her properly
  •  the first row is medium shot; angle is eye level;  the second and third row is a long shot with low angle. the low angle also gives the audience a sense that they are sharing the character’s perspective, so here the main character is not speaking but she is really thinking deep inside and looking up.
