Persepolis (comics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Persepolis is a French-language autobiographical graphic novel by Marjane Satrapi depicting her childhood up to her early adult years in Iran during and after the Islamic revolution. The title is a reference to the ancient capital of the Persian Empire, Persepolis. Newsweek ranked the book #5 on its list of the ten best fiction books of the decade.[1]

Drawn in black and white, the comic found great popularity following its release, and was translated into several languages. The English edition combines the first two French books and was translated by Blake Ferris and Satrapi's husband, Mattias Ripa. The French editions of Persepolis 1 and Persepolis 2 were combined into a single volume, Persepolis 1, for the United States market, and "Persepolis 3" and "Persepolis 4" were combined into a single volume, "Persepolis 2". In the U.S., the Persepolis series is published by Pantheon Books.

In 2007, an animated film adaptation of the comic was created, with author Satrapi co-directing with French comic artist Vincent Paronnaud. The film utilized the same style of the comic, although there are a handful of scenes in the present day that are shown in color, while the rest of the flashback events are illustrated in black and white, as in the novel. The film opened in various countries to critical acclaim and received an Oscar nomination for Best Animated Feature at the United States Academy Awards.

"For an English teacher used to working solely with words, it was certainly a challenge to my lesson planning, my expertise and my whole thinking about what constitutes ‘reading’. However, it was a challenge that I very much enjoyed, as well as being one that has enriched my practice as an English teacher" (Alison Binney).
