Literature and dictatorship. Uncovering political crimes in Gamal al-Ghitanis Seini Barakat (1974) and Herta Müllers Herztier (1994) Literature is a reliable indicator for political developments, especially those of an oppressive nature, in any society. Both the personal experience of the authors themselves and their awareness of their responsibility towards their communities usually cause them to deal in their works with the impact of dictatorships on the lives of human beings. This article deals with the specific literary strategies developed in the novels Seini Barakat by Egyptian author Gamal al-Ghitani and Herztier by German Rumanian author Herta Müller to broach the issue of political crimes, especially in the context of breaking political taboos in their respective societies through literary work.
