Control is prevalent in both The Epic of Gilgamesh and The Complete Persepolis. In both of these pieces of writing, there is a great sense of control by fear. The people of the town or country, fear the leader and are often outraged by the things they do. Also, the people are manipulated by their controllers and sometimes cannot even think for themselves. Many of times they are forced to think or do many things that they do not want to. This gallery shows both the point of view of the citizens and the point of view of the rulers. It shows the different types of control between the different writings and the different ways of leading people. Control has always been around and will always be around. There will always be those who are control hungry and those who get crushed by those who are control them.
