Persepolis

Posted by jeannem in Uncategorized

I thought the  frames of Majanes’s book on pages 12 and 13 in which the conversation between Marx and Descartes takes place were interesting.  I thought it was funny how Marx throws a rock at Derscartes to prove its really and not imaginative is actually really funny, however I think its more important than that.  The book makes a lot of comments about Marx and communism.  In the frame right after, Marjane even comments about how Marx looks like God except for his hair being a bit curlier.  I think this is Satrapi’s way of kind of putting Marx up on a pedestal and saying that he’s almost like God.  By his attacking Descarte in the funny way he does, he’s showing not only that he doesn’t believe what Descarte does, but that he wrong by proving the stone is real when it ‘breaks’ Descartes skull.
