Dystopian writing: the existing boundary between fiction and reality
Utopian and dystopian fiction are genres of speculative fiction that explore social and political structures. Utopian fiction portrays a setting that agrees with the author's ethos , having various attributes of another reality intended to appeal to readers. Dystopian fiction offers the opposite: the portrayal of a setting that completely disagrees with the author's ethos. Both utopias and dystopias are commonly found in science fiction and other types of speculative fiction. More than utopian works in the English language were published prior to the year , with more than a thousand others appearing during the 20th century.

Following Mikhail Bakhtin, it treats the chronotope as the structural pivot of the narrative, which integrates and determines other aspects of the text. Dystopia, the paper argues, is a particularly appropriate genre to consider the structural role of the chronotope for two reasons.

Gottlieb juxtaposes the Western dystopian genre with Eastern and Central European versions, introducing a selection of works from Russia, Poland, Hungary, and Czechoslovakia. She demonstrates that authors who write about and under totalitarian dictatorship find the worst of all possible worlds not in a hypothetical future but in the historical reality of the writer's present or recent past. Against such a background the writer assumes the role of witness, protesting against a nightmare world that is but should not be. She introduces the works of Victor Serge, Vassily Grossmam, Alexander Zinoviev, Tibor Dery, Arthur Koestler, Vaclav Havel, and Istvan Klima, as well as a host of others, all well-known in their own countries, presenting them within a framework established through an original and comprehensive exploration of the patterns underlying the more familiar Western works of dystopian fiction.

In her monumental study of major dystopian works, Erika Gottlieb focuses almost exclusively on the intentional miscarriage of justice in the societies depicted, all supposedly created to effect a moral social harmony.

Споткнулась о мусорный бачок и едва не наткнулась на кафельную стенку. Ведя рукой по прохладному кафелю, она наконец добралась до двери и нащупала дверную ручку. Дверь отворилась, и Сьюзан вышла в помещение шифровалки. Здесь она снова замерла. Все выглядело совсем не так, как несколько минут .
Сьюзан положила руку на мышку и вывела окно состояния Следопыта. Сколько времени он уже занят поиском. Открылось окно - такие же цифровые часы, как на ТРАНСТЕКСТЕ, которые должны были показывать часы и минуты работы Следопыта. Однако вместо этого Сьюзан увидела нечто совершенно иное, от чего кровь застыла в жилах.
Беккер поднялся на ноги, пытаясь выровнять дыхание.
