Marjane Satrapi’s perspective affects her presentation of imperialism, religion and loss of innocence.For instance, this image represents imperialism in a very unique way (Wikimedia, Fig. 1). The octopus represents a country, specifically England in this case, taking over multiple countries all at once. Imperialism is when countries enter another country and try to take it over to claim it as their own. Marjane Satrapi uses several examples of imperialism in Persepolis.
Gender is important in the story because the men take on more masculine traditional roles while the women are expected to be more feminine and do things more around the house.

A girl was not, as I had supposed, simply what I was; it was what I had to become.
Henrik Ibsen’s “A Doll’s House” is a critique of an unequal society with its structured hierarchy of male dominance. The play seems to be a serious social commentary of the time period when it was written. The characters in the play bring four issues of power and control, ignorance and innocence, rebirth and social status. Ibsen created Nora’s character in doll’s house to represent that women of that time period was unaware of their situation in society but in play women were also taught to overcome their unawareness.

The dictionary defines colonialism as “the policy or practice of acquiring full or partial political control over another country, occupying it with settlers, and exploiting it economically,” a tactic commonly associated with American and European history. Empires rise and fall while innocent people die due to a leader’s desperation to become a global superpower, but imperialism is still a policy used by many countries whose governments obsess over expansion. History continues to repeat itself time and time again, dating back to the Roman Empire stretching across Europe, followed by the British, French, and Spanish expanding into the Western World for colonization, and more recently, American expansion throughout the Western Hemisphere. These significant events in history led to long term consequences that still significantly impact the world today. The effects of colonialism date back to a time before America was even founded, but one of the greatest examples of imperialism occurred when Columbus decided to sail to the Americas.

Imperialism has condemned the Caribbean Region to ‘Third World’ status perpetually it seems.
This shows what a horrific world Winston lives in. Anything that someone thought of had to be in accordance with the party’s regime, anything else would be considered a thoughtcrime and would be punished severely. Considering the mechanisms of control and the possibilities of freedom that follow we will explore the extent to which George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four is a pessimistic and dystopian novel. The first mechanism of control that we will explore is Newspeak. Newspeak is the language that was created and enforced by Big Brother, the controlling party in the novel, to control and restrict the way in which party members think.
Totalitarian governments, such as Nazi Germany, and their use of controversial techniques in order to rise power are significant influences on literature, creating parallels between it and novels such as 1984 by George Orwell. The system deployed by the Nazi regime in order to rise to power was undoubtedly, while immoral, very effective in eliciting the results desired by its enforcers. State sponsored murder or execution, prevalent in both Nazi Germany and 1984, were utilized by the government to incite hatred within its citizens. Big Brothers overbearing presence in the citizens lives strikingly resembles the relationship that dictators such as Adolf Hitler held with countries through implementation of similar propaganda techniques seen in
