Stasiland
What kind of unknown, hidden or forgotten realities does Anna Funder bring to light? What techniques does she employ to achieve this?
How does she immerse into the topic?
The hidden Reality:
The Stasi put their prisoners on sleep deprivation which was actually forbidden in the GDR because it was considered to be torture.

Ten
times twenty-four
hours in which you hardly sleep.
Ten
times twenty-four
hours in which you are hardly awake.
Ten
days is a very long time." (p.26)

The hidden Reality:
Former members of the Stasi did not change their view on East Germany and Communism and still heavily support it.
The Literary Techniques

!" (p.134)

I am so be-lov-ed.
" (p.135)

There was a pile of her letters to the Italian. There was a pile of his letters back to her.
" (p.110)
"
This man knew everything.
" (p.110)
"I see the crown of her head, messy blond and vulnerable
as a child's
as she bends to tuck one leg of her jeans into her sock. Then she puts the other foot on the pedal and pushes off,
Tiresias on a bike.
" (p.145)
