Persepolis Literary Analysis Week 5#

Post By Heitor G.

Question: How does the protagonist change from the beginning to the end of the novel?  What does this character learn about himself (or herself) and about how the world works?

Persepolis is one of the best books to talk about when asked this question, because the protagonists starts as a child and grows up towards the end of the book. She starts as a normal child with a very high religious belief. She thinks she is the next prophet and claims she sees God in person. She becomes rebellious since her parents influence her into becoming part of a rebellion, even though she doesn't necessarily agree with them. Just like in real life, the protagonists learns how the world works as she grows older and finds out the world isnt as beutiful as she once thought. The character progression in this book is great and we can clearly understand what the character wants and needs through the story.
