Presenting Historical Trauma in the Graphic Novel: A Comparison of Persepolis and Maus

DOES REQUIRE KNOWLEDGE OF BOTH BOOKS

3-pages, double spaced, Due: 9/23

Prompt:

Marjane Satrapi and Art Spiegelman both utilize personal narratives in Persepolis and Mausto examine historical events. Compare and contrast each artist’s unique approach to storytelling in these two graphic novels. Communicate to the reader how this art form (the graphic novel) is a unique media to communicate a historical, traumatic event to a broad audience.

Think about the narrative and how it is delivered visually in each novel. You may want to consider: character development, setting, time management, symbolism, humor and irony, role of the reader, and the use of distancing and intimacy.

Where are the areas of similarity and difference? Specific formal elements and terms of design should be incorporated from The Methodologies of Art.

When crafting your argument, use specific sections of the novels. Your thesis and supporting evidence should be relevant and incorporate using page numbers, chapter markers and even individual frames or visual markers. Formal citations should be included in your paper.
