The Gospel According to Kafka: A Literary Collage

Texts from Franz Kafka’s short stories, letters, diaries, and aphorisms are woven together to a poetic collage.

 

In his stories, Franz Kafka (1883 – 1924) leaves behind the realm of the possible and probable world in order to better understand the real world. His protagonists often are helplessly confronted by anonymous powers; they are imprisoned in a maze without exit. Fear and failure are dominant topics. In vain his protagonists look for a way out. A master of the absurd, Kafka describes the most fantastic events with a clarity and precision, that leads the reader to the limits of thinking. In Kafka’s work the great upheaval of the 20th century is expressed almost like a vision. Like no other author, Kafka ...describes the emotional framework and living conditions of modernity.
