Description

Erich Heller's reading of Kafka is one of the most cogent

Erich Heller's reading of Kafka is one of the most cogent. Since the literature on this great writer is enormous, this short study is also probably the best entry point into it. Kafka must be the only writer who's considered the major voice of his age by one critic (Auden) and and unacceptable as such by another (Edmund Wilson). Isaac Singer wittily said that "one Kafka per century was enough.

Franz Kafka (Reaktion Books - Critical Lives).

The Fontana Modern Masters was a series of pocket guides on writers, philosophers, and other thinkers and theorists who shaped the intellectual landscape of the twentieth century.

Kafka’s celebrated novella The Metamorphosis ( Die Verwandlung ) was written a century ago, in late 1912, during a period in which he was having difficulty making progress on his first novel

Kafka’s celebrated novella The Metamorphosis ( Die Verwandlung ) was written a century ago, in late 1912, during a period in which he was having difficulty making progress on his first novel. On November 17, 1912, Kafka wrote to his fiancée Felice Bauer that he was working on a story that came to me in my misery lying in bed and now was haunting him. He hoped to get it written down quickly-he hadn’t yet realized how long it would be-as he felt it would turn out best if he could write it in just one or two long sittings.

Erich Heller's reading of Kafka is one of the most cogent. Since the literature on this great writer is enormous, this short study is also probably the best entry point into it.

Kafka must be the only writer who's considered the major voice of his age by one critic (Auden) and and unacceptable as such by another (Edmund Wilson).

Isaac Singer wittily said that "one Kafka per century was enough." Kafka would likely have agreed with him, since he left instructions to Max Brod, his friend and literary executor, to burn all his manuscripts after his death..

Thank goodness for us that Brod refused Kafka's last request!

Still the best book about Kafka besides reading The Trial, The Castle, and the collected stories themselves.
