Dictators / literature
Message de desdehace posté le 02-01-2014 à 20:45:19 (S | E | F)
Bonsoir,

Tout d'abord, bonne année 2014 !
Pourriez-vous, s'il vous plait, corriger mon texte ?
Merci d'avance.


Dictatorship is an authoritarian regime in which the government is led by one individual. This type of regime denies fundamental liberties and controls the population through propaganda, censorship, and medias. Therefore, literature which refers to any form of written word was the main target of dictators. Why have they always viewed literature with suspicion ?
To me, dictators fear first that any form of writing paper criticize their regime and clearly oppose to the state propaganda. Indeed, totalitarian regimes always use propaganda as a way to indoctrinate the population who had not legal access to proper information. For instance, Hitler abolished literature freedom and only books praising the Nazi regime were saved from censorship.
Moreover, dictators figured the power of books, as literature could raise people's awareness toward the regime's methods and defend democratic values. Indeed, books gather ideas, points of view, thus people; dictators may fear to be overthrown. Therefore, Hitler held mass books burning ceremonies. Plus, Mao, during his Cultural revolution, forbade many books, especially foreign ones. The book Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress testifies to this period, and underlines the power, the stenght of literature. Indeed, the little seamstress comes to realize trhough books that somewhere something better in life is to be expected.
To conclude, books are powerful as they are capable of changing one's mind and making them aware of what surround them. Therefore, dictators have always seen literature as a threat. Some decided to physically destroyed them, organizing mass book burnings, others used censorship. Nevertheless, literature seems to have its own weapons as philosophical tales or utopia, which can be ways to criticize “safely”.

Hi

The few problems are in blue

Dictatorship is an authoritarian regime in which the government is led by one individual. This type of regime denies fundamental liberties and controls the population through propaganda, censorship, and medias..plural of media is media. Therefore, literature which refers to any form of written word was the main target of dictators. Why have they always viewed literature with suspicion ?
To me, dictators fear first that any form of writing paper=papier à lettres?? criticize their regime and clearly oppose to the state propaganda. Indeed, totalitarian regimes always use propaganda as a way to indoctrinate the population who had not legal access to proper information. For instance, Hitler abolished literary ture freedom and only books praising the Nazi regime were saved from censorship.

To conclude, books are powerful as they are capable of changing one's mind and making them doesn't agree with 'one's mind', do you mean 'minds'?aware of what surround them. Therefore, dictators have always seen literature as a threat. Some decided to physically destroyed them, organizing mass book burnings, others used censorship. Nevertheless, literature seems to have its own weapons as philosophical tales or utopia, which can be ways to criticize “safely”.

Hello,

In addition to the above I would change this sentence:
"Indeed, totalitarian regimes always use propaganda as a way to indoctrinate the population who had no legal access to proper information."
There is a bit of an issue in the way in which the tenses in both parts of the sentence don't agree. It would be better to write:
"Indeed, totalitarian regimes have always used propaganda as a way to indoctrinate the population who had no legal access to proper information."
Or:
"Indeed, totalitarian regimes always use propaganda as a way to indoctrinate the population who have no legal access to proper information."

I found your passage to be quite well written in general though, well done.
