The purpose of this article is to discuss the totalitarian experience of a human being through the study of The Joke, the first novel by the Czech writer Milan Kundera, written in 1965. Although the work allows us to approach the phenomenon of Soviet totalitarianism through the historical scenario in which the characters develop, alluding without any doubt to the apogee and decay of the Soviet regime in Czechoslovakia, this paper intents to place totalitarianism as a tendency contained in the modern individual. That is, the representation of totalitarianism as an existential situation.
