A Female Prophet? : Authority and Inheritance in Marjane Satrapi

Author: Rachel Trousdale
Edition/Format: Chapter Chapter : English
Summary:
This chapter examines how personal and public rebellions coincide and the ways in which bearing witness not only engages with universal narratives but also produces individuals/individualism. Drawing on Marjane Satrapi’s memoir Persepolis, it stresses the importance of carrying one’s own moral authority within himself. It considers the apparent conflict between West and East, modernity and fundamentalism, individualism and collectivity, in Persepolis. It also discusses Satrapi’s constant attempts to replace prescriptive with descriptive storytelling, and traditional authority figures with family-sanctioned self-determination. Finally, the chapter looks at the juxtaposition of God and Karl Marx in Persepolis.  Read more...
