In the literary world, domination is not exerted in an unequivocal way. Because hierarchical structure is not linear, it cannot be described in terms of a simple model of a single centralized dominant power.

This fundamental dependency assumes a variety of forms, particularly political ones, and operates in a variety of ways, most notably through language.
