    Fell In Love With Kafka

    I chose Kafka's "The Trial" for my graduation research 2 years ago. I fell in love with him since then.His allusions, uniqueness,shocking representation make his books "an axe for the frozen sea within us". He is a man who stands out.

    Beloved

    A long time ago I got a cassette with his complete works.  It was illustrated by himself and I was very impressed by his hasty sketches.  I had read some of his major works before, but now I had them all and I saw my supposition confirmed that he had a lot of humor...

    I Found Who I Was.

    The first time I ever heard of Kafka was from a punk song "My Friend Chris" by The Menzingers (it's a beautiful acoustic song that still brings tears to my eyes, check it out!), and it was at that moment when the chorus first droned "and maybe Kafka was a writer, but I've been...

    I Read Something By Kafka Almost Every Night.

    The first book by Kafka I read was The Castle. Since then I've read almost all of his published works and am currently reading letters he wrote. I found many parallels between his life and mine, or rather his and my ways of living and such. I had a very good friend from...

    Love Is Actually Not Strong Enough a Word...

    A person who can write things like this must be a genius. I adore this man. I adore his way of writing. I adore his imagination. I adore his intelligence. Just everything about thim is absolutely amazing... If I could go back in time and meet one dead person it would be Kafka.

    The Trial

    I remembering reading this in high school and  almost sort understanding it.  But this was a concept that couldn't possibly happen in the US. I read it again in 2002 when I was homeschooling my sons. It suddenly hit me, as we were discussing it, that it was happening...

    I've spent years obsessing over Kafka's work.

    My ability to cite minute details and even attempt to write a dissertation on his work makes me feel like an imposter. I'm riding on his coat tail, not being able to create on my own. I want to apologize to myself, am I wasting my years away? Deep down I still think In...

    Before The Law
