In this study, the first in English, Paul Cooke explores the interplay of aesthetic and social taboos, as defined by the official discourse of the GDR, in a cross-section of Hilbigs critical writing, poetry and prose. The protagonists in Hilbigs texts suffer from a profound crisis of identity due to the disparity between the states official presentation of life in the East and their own experience.

Cooke argues that through their exploration of the taboo, i.e. that which is excluded from the states official discourse, Hilbigs characters attempt to break through the banal rhetoric of the ruling elite in order to realise an authentic sense of self.
