Arabian nights

mkarol's picture

 I read the first 5 Arabian Nights stories from the ELF website. I definitely see the connections between Scheherezade and Marjane, as they were both educated women who used story-telling in a freeing way - Scheherezade for her people and Marjane for herself and her beliefs. The 'story within a story' aspect of the Arabian Nights tales can be slightly confusing, but they're definitely simple to understand. The ELF source includes pictures along with the actual words, which relates to the graphic aspect of graphic narratives, but I really didn't pay close attention to them, much like what happened when I read the graphic novels.
