    About “Franz Kafka Nahum N. Glatzer John Updike Willa Muir Edwin Muir Tania Stern James Stern Ernst Kaiser”

    1. Franz Kafka Nahum N. Glatzer John Updike Willa Muir Edwin Muir Tania Stern James Stern Ernst Kaiser

      Franz Kafka was one of the major fiction writers of the 20th century He was born to a middle class German speaking Jewish family in Prague, Bohemia presently the Czech Republic , Austria Hungary His unique body of writing much of which is incomplete and which was mainly published posthumously is considered to be among the most influential in Western literature.His stories include The Metamorphosis 1912 and In the Penal Colony 1914 , while his novels are The Trial 1925 , The Castle 1926 and Amerika 1927.Kafka s first language was German, but he was also fluent in Czech Later, Kafka acquired some knowledge of French language and culture one of his favorite authors was Flaubert.Kafka first studied chemistry at the Charles Ferdinand University of Prague, but switched after two weeks to law This offered a range of career possibilities, which pleased his father, and required a longer course of study that gave Kafka time to take classes in German studies and art history At the university, he joined a student club, named Lese und Redehalle der Deutschen Studenten, which organized literary events, readings and other activities In the end of his first year of studies, he met Max Brod, who would become a close friend of his throughout his life, together with the journalist Felix Weltsch, who also studied law Kafka obtained the degree of Doctor of Law on 18 June 1906 and performed an obligatory year of unpaid service as law clerk for the civil and criminal courts.Kafka s writing attracted little attention until after his death During his lifetime, he published only a few short stories and never finished any of his novels, unless The Metamorphosis is considered a short novel Prior to his death, Kafka wrote to his friend and literary executor Max Brod Dearest Max, my last request Everything I leave behind me in the way of diaries, manuscripts, letters my own and others , sketches, and so on, is to be burned unread Brod overrode Kafka s wishes, believing that Kafka had given these directions to him specifically because Kafka knew he would not honor them Brod had told him as much Brod, in fact, would oversee the publication of most of Kafka s work in his possession, which soon began to attract attention and high critical regard.Max Brod encountered significant difficulty in compiling Kafka s notebooks into any chronological order as Kafka was known to start writing in the middle of notebooks, from the last towards the first, etc.All of Kafka s published works, except several letters he wrote in Czech to Milena Jesensk , were written in German.

    1. The idea that there exists such thing as a “must read” book is one of the great fallacies diluting literature. To judge a reader unfavourably because a certain book is not on his or her shelf, rather than to praise and learn from the idiosyncratic choices to be found there instead, is to wish for a literature of bland homogeneity. To label a book “must read” is to condemn it to being misunderstood. And when that book is by the strange, reclusive, haunted black-humourist Franz Kafka, and [...]

    3. Algo que me encanta de las obras de Kafka es que obligan a sus lectores a crear sus propios pensamientos, no llenan como carcasas vacías sus cráneos con ideas del autor. El entendimiento no llega de manera explícita, sino que debe pasar por una espinosa actividad cerebral y, merced a eso, forma pensadores en vez de conocedores. Con esto quiero decir que el lector comprende la obra hasta donde su nivel de razonamiento le permite, y no solo eso, sino que asimismo el lector puede tener una inter [...]


    4. “Around me things sink away like fallen snow, whereas for other people even a little liqueur glass stands on the table steady as a statue.” 4.5 stars.There are stories in this collection (and these were by far my favorite kind) that clutch and fumble and scrabble across the surface of your mind, entities so eerily misshapen and askew that you don’t want to let them in. Grimacing and winking, they slither in anyway. Before you know it, everything you thought solid and real begins to fall aw [...]


    5. I think it's a little mistake to judge Kafka considering only "The Metamorphosis". There's a whole different view on things in some of his stories. You're not going to find a nice, warm, fuzzy, Care Bear kind of book (that line made sense in my mind). But some of his stories do show another side of him. I personally like the psychological twisted, complicated, claustrophobic and absurd ones with a weird sense of humor (yes, he can be funny) and infinite interpretations. But that's just me.I like [...]

    7. The Old Man in the Woods Or The Monkeys by fire We monkeys have sat by this ever-burning fire for generations because we are afraid to go outside the perimeter of its light into the dark. Although we have tried to look beyond into the darkness everyday hoping to find something; yet all of us are afraid to step out. And this fear is not baseless, for whoever has entered the darkness has never returned. Thus this fire has a very central role to play in our lives. It has been there for as long as m [...]


    8. Compilación de cuentos cortos geniales escritos por el aún más genial Franz Kafka. Cuentos cortos que dan para más de una interpretación. Lo que admiro de este gran señor es la posibilidad que le da al lector de crear sus propias ideas a partir de lo que él escribe, hace que el lector piense y cree su propio escenario, Kafka no da todo "en bandeja".Lo más difícil de todo siempre es entender los cuentos de Kafka, quizás es muy criticado por eso. Al principio ni yo mismo no los entendía [...]


    9. Buy a good collection of Kafka's stories and put it in the bathroom. Really.If you've been led to believe that Kafka wrote drab stories about alienation and angst (and that The Metamorphosis is a tradgedy), then take a magic marker, cross out the name on the spine, and pretend it's a weird book by Dave Sedaris or something. Kafka's stories are smart, often funny, quick to read, and as modern and relevant as ever.In the bathroom you'll probably bypass the larger works (including The Metamorphosis [...]


    10. I first bought this in 2009, in an edition where Vintage had removed the full stops from the text in error, or to lure me into some Kakfaesque trap. Thanks, Vintage! I complained and received a freebie of Bulgakov’s The Heart of a Dog instead. I parked the stories for a long time, until this moment in time, when I revisited the most terrifying story in the universe, ‘The Metamorphosis’, the most horrific and significant story in the universe ‘Inside the Penal Colony’, the breathtaking [...]


    11. The recent so-called scandalous revelations about Kafka's personal library (as if -- turns out he read a slightly edgy quarterly of arts & literature) prompt me to say something about his work. For my list, I suppose it must be this book, an inevitable choice but nonetheless indispensable (I should add, too, that I can't really specify when I read the COLLECTED STORIES; I began doing so in the 1960's & never stopped). To read Kafka is to be carried away by the imagination of the century [...]


    12. Probably most readable, rhythmic and rounded among these tales, so much so that I forced my brother to listen to me reading it aloud to him, is The Great Wall of China, which contains the immortal parable of the messenger.Kafka's tales are oblique, frequently, I think, resisting reading in terms of established philosophical or ideological positions. Their psychological resonance is immense, even when it's difficult to pin a definitive meaning to the action, to divine the motivations of the chara [...]


    13. Kafka placed his own stories in a specific canon, included in the previous book I reviewed, called “The Metamorphosis and Other Stories.” I agree with Kafka. Those stories stand out among the rest. However, reading all of his shorts gave me no less pleasure. I liked his shorter stories most, as they packed meaning and depth into a small speck, like the small matter scientists say blew up into the Universe. I love the way Kafka describes settings. I love the way he makes me feel. Two stories [...]


    14. این کتاب همه داستان ها و دستنوشته های کافکا به جز 3 رمان او را شامل می شود .کلا خیلی اضطراب اور و مشوش کننده است داستانهاش . بعد از خوندنشون ادم هنوز ذهنش درگیر و مشوش هست .راستش من از خیلی از داستانهاش سر در نمی اوردم و بعضی هاش هم که نصفه بود . ظاهرا اکثر کارهای کافکا نیمه کاره بو [...]


    15. There is something about Kafka's writing that just pulls you in, ties you to the chair and makes you experience it - in all of its frustration, humor and sadness. When observed objectively, it is almost insane that we still read an author that only published a few completed short stories. Kafka ordered all of his work to be burned upon his early death at 41 - his executor and friend, Max Brod, sensed the unfulfilled genius in Kafka's work, and refused his friend's dying wish. So I asked myself w [...]


    16. Every story is different, but each one takes you to a different world, or an alternative view of one we are in (and perhaps wish we weren't). Some are funny, some sad and many are both. Some are so short they are more like prose poems. Great for dipping into and getting a taste of Kafka before (and during and after) tackling his larger works.See my Kafka-related bookshelf for other works by and about Kafka (/review/list/).


    17. I can't believe I haven't rated this one yet. This is where you go to find Kafka, even more so than his unfinished novels. Though the Trial is magnificent, the short stories are where his genius is most evident. Depths and depths to plumb here. Leagues beyond most other writers.


    18. Some, I would assume, early, over-long stories here. My issue with Kafka, which I don't have with The Castle, is that everything comes across as a minimalistic intellectual exercise, the themes repeated endlessly, the characters mere vehicles.


    19. Most people's exposure to Kafka consists entirely of "The Metamorphosis", which is a shame, for while that story is indeed a classic, it has led to a somewhat unfair pigeonholing of Kafka as a lonely, disillusioned Oedipal case with a penchant for bleak imagery (hence the adjective Kafkaesque). But while Kafka certainly is all of those things, he is also much more, and this collection is a brilliant portrait of that.Some of the best moments in the collection come from Kafka letting out his playf [...]


    20. Kafka es un autor muy controvertido, admirado y rechazado a partes iguales, parece, sin embargo, que el tiempo le está dando la razón a aquellos que admiraban el genuino talento creador del autor checo. El motivo principal de esto se debe a la, llamémosle, habilidad o sensibilidad para percibir los males de la sociedad de la época, unos males que, parece, son más duraderos y universales de lo que se podría pensar en un principio.Kafka supo retratar estos defectos de manera metafórica, lle [...]


    21. سبك نگارش كافكا نه بر كسي پوشيده است و نه به نحوي ست كه بشود با حفظ تمام هنرمندي هاي او، براي كسي توضيحش داد. مجموعه ي داستانهاي كوتاه كافكا از هرنظر به ويژه به لحاظ فضاي داستان ها و بعد انتقادي، با داستانهاي بلندش برابري ميكرد و چه بسا به سبب كوتاهي كلام بعضا از انسجام بيشتري ب [...]



    22. فرانتس کافکا متولد شده در پراگ و از یک خانواده یهودی ِآلمانی زبان است. او بر اثر بیماری سل در سوم ژوئن هزار و نهصد و بیست و چهار در گذشت. کافکا اعتماد به نفس چندانی برای انتشار نوشته های خود نداشت و در اکثر مواقع دوست او ماکس برود او را تشویق به انتشار آنها می کرد. جایی نیز در یادد [...]


    23. A couple things:I can't think of any other writer who had as much antipathy toward his own work as Kafka. As he was dying, he repeatedly and emphatically asked his friend Max Brod to destroy all of his stories. The knowledge of this naturally creates a kind of tragic grandeur to the work, the thought that he was never really satisfied or proud of what he'd produced, and that they all could have been lost. I wouldn't say that this destructive impulse was due to an excess of perfectionism, but rat [...]


    24. Desde su primer libro de relatos, "Contemplación", pasando por "La Metamorfosis" y todos los relatos póstumos que legó el genio incomparable de Franz Kafka a la literatura universal, pueden leerse en este libro imprescindible que nos lleva a perdernos en los dilemas y laberintos, en las maravillosas paradojas kafkianas que disparan múltiples interpretaciones como si fueran rizomas. Imperdible



    25. Kafka's Complete Stories is the rare book to which I could give two stars or five. Beyond his writing, I love him for his humanity, his authenticity, and his painful incompatibility with the modern world. His attempts, however, to put all this in writing are unfortunately inconsistent, ranging from mesmerizing to incomplete "scribbling" as he referred to his own writing. As a reader I am repeatedly wishing beyond wishing that he had expanded, developed, and completed more of the stories and frag [...]


    26. I've entered Kafka's world & got lost in time & space Never wanted to get back to real life! That's my true feeling after finishing this magnificent book. Started by two introductory parables & followed by his famous longer stories. It was my 3rd time reading "The Metamorphosis", admired: ( In the Penal Colony, a Country Doctor, A Report to an Academy, A Hunger Artist, Investigations of a Dog & The Burrow).From the shorter stories: "The knock at the Manor Gate" reminded me of hi [...]


    27. I was given this book months ago, but took a while to get back in the short-story groove :) Since I read these stories at various points, I'm only going to highlight my two personal favorites in this collection: METAMORPHOSIS, and THE PENAL COLONY. The first was one of those stories where you find yourself looking for an outcome that even YOU can't predict. As far as "staying power", this is one story that I don't think I'll ever forget. The second one, THE PENAL COLONY was a completely differen [...]


    28. I read as much of it as I could comprehend/ connect with in high school and it mattered a great deal to me.Years pass, and I still go back to it in difficult times for wisdom, perspective, and nourishment.Immortal.
