Persepolis is told from the perspective of author and first-person narrator Marjane Satrapi.
Persepolis is written in the past tense.
Persepolis was the ancient capital of Persia, or modern-day Iran. Demolished by Alexander the Great in 330 BCE, its ruins are a reminder of the strength and longevity of Persian culture despite numerous invasions and regime changes. By using the name of the ancient city as the title for her autobiographical graphic memoir, author Marjane Satrapi draws a parallel between the destruction of the ancient capital and the Iranian Revolution of 1979.
