Blog Post #5: Thinking of the book as a graphic text, with a focus on word and image as devices for storytelling:
- Why do you think Satrapi chose to tell her story in words and images? What does the combination make possible that words or images alone would not?
- How would you describe the style of Satrapi’s drawings? How does this style contribute to the story that she tells? How does this style limit the way the story is told?
- What particular incidents in the story do you think are conveyed more effectively in pictures than they could have been in words alone?
