Course Overview

This course is a comprehensive study of Marjane Satrapi's graphic novels Persepolis 1 and 2. We will start the course by briefly overviewing key literary and graphological devices of a graphic novel, followed by the background of the author and its cultural significance.

Next, the student will be led through close readings and guided analysis to help them better develop their understanding of the novels- highlighting how themes, symbols, and literary devices present and further the meaning of the work. The course will also focus on the context of the work- notably its historical context and how Satrapi's use of imagery and narrative techniques help to convey her experiences growing up during the Iranian Revolution. We will also focus on middle eastern culture and how it's presented in the novels.

We will further delve into the literary analysis of the novels by identifying and interpreting figurative language, analysing character development, and evaluating the author's purpose and message.

By the end of the course, students will have the skills and knowledge necessary to confidently discuss and write the work, while meeting curriculum criterions.

Express Course

Our express courses are abridged versions of our standard courses.

They are best suited as revision courses for those who have a strong grasp of the subject and looking to achieve the highest grades.

They have a run time of 6 hours, and each lesson is for an hour.

Weaker students might want to use the express course as an overview and then follow that up with ad- hoc tuition on weak areas.

Standard Course

Our standard course, with a run time of 12 hours, is best for those who need more guidance and/or have little to basic understanding of the subject/work.

The course progresses at a moderate pace and all aspects of the subject/work are covered in depth.
