What does the awarding of the Nobel Prize in Literature to Herta Muller signify? What are her politics and was it related to the awarding of the prize? Phil Taylor walks us through Muller's attacks on the Romanian government, bullying of East German writers, and general contribution to Europe's rightward drift.

The references to the manner in which "Germandom" organizations received news of Muellers award are from an article by "German Foreign Policy," which can be read here:
