„[I]m Fegefeuer von Diktaturen“. Die Darstellung arabischer Diktaturen im Prosawerk von Abbas Khider

  • This article deals with the works of the Iraqi writer Abbas Khider who lives in Germany. His works revolve around a major topic, namely, the life of the ordinary Arab citizen under dictatorship. In all Arab countries, dictatorship has been able to set up and update a new cultural fashion based on oppression and persecution, looking man down and depriving him of his freedom. Our writer has suffered so much from dictatorship which pushed him to live in delinquency from one country to the other. Building on this, the article is attempting through linking the author’s autobiography to the major events and characters of his works to point to the nature of the Arab dictatorship dominating in the Arab world before the Arab Spring which would contribute to understanding the works of Khider and identify their real content.
