you will use Karr′s theory of the inner enemy to formulate your own conceptual research question about Persepolis. This a draft so no need for a conclusion total of 900-1000 words. included all sources except the book, I also included a sample paper.

Applying a Theory to Achieve New Understanding:

In this second project, rather than using an argument source to provoke your question and argumentative response, you will be using a theory source: Karr’s theory of the inner enemy as the driving force behind a memoir’s narrative, an inner conflict that “holds it together, either thematically or in the way a plot would keep a novel rolling forward” (92). Because this is a theory rather than an argument, your task is not to agree or disagree with Karr; instead, your task is to apply her theory to one or both of our graphic memoirs with the goal of understanding the creator and his or her narrative in a new way, revealing tensions that may be working above and/or below the surface of the text.


Assignment Description & Requirements: You will write an argumentative paper of 1500-1800 words (roughly 5-7 pages) in which you formulate a question regarding the inner enemy of your exhibit source’s narrator and assert your own well-reasoned argumentative response. You may ask generally about the nature of the memoirist’s inner conflict that he or she is seeking to resolve and/or whether that conflict is resolved by the end of the work, or you may formulate a more specific question connected to what you understand the inner conflict to be.

· Main body paragraphs that include well-selected and sufficient evidence from your exhibit source(s) to help guide your discussion and illustrate your point of view. Include at least three images from your exhibit source(s) to highlight important visual representation of your author’s inner struggle.
