The Plight of Minorities under the Totalitarian Regime: A Study of Herta Mullerís The Hunger Angel

Deepak Kapur, Dr. Gowher Ahmad Naik.

Abstract
This paper aims to study the novel The Hunger Angel by Herta Muller from the totalitarian perspective as the
characters have been tormented and horribly treated by the system. They have been deprived from their social,
political, cultural and economic rights as a result, they have suffered terribly. Herta Muller, herself a victim of
oppression under totalitarianism, has portrayed characters that are at odds with life and they want to escape their
present circumstances. But, their zest and zeal for a respectable and decent life follow a very shaky path. The
characters face those moments when they simply resign to their fate and smother any kind of radical thought in
their minds. Nevertheless, hope bounces back and the characters try to make sense of their shattered lives. The
Hunger Angel novel provides ample opportunities to expound upon the intricate nuances and complexities of the
human psyche in a totalitarian regime.

Key words: Totalitarian, oppression, hunger, shattered lives
