LITERATURE: Franz Kafka

31 Comments



Franz Kafka is a guide to some very dark feelings most of us know well concerned with powerlessness, self-disgust and anxiety. This literary genius turned the stuff of nightmares into redemptive, consoling art. If you like our films take a look at our shop (we ship worldwide): https://www.theschooloflife.com/shop/

      I hate his mother the most. That's an enabler of an abuser if I've ever heard one. Fully aware that this is not the point of introducing us to mr Kafka, however it spawns anger in me just imagining how his life was, hurts that it is relatable.

      I was at chili's when Kafka was an answer in a game. Now I get this recommendation. Kafka sounds like a beta bitch. Mix of Lovecraft and Marx.

      Jesus, how fucking tragic, that the 'best german author since Goethe' died in anonymity.

      I'm about to read Kafka for the first time – well, his literary work, since I've read his letters before – and this video just managed to get me both excited and informed about his life, who he was and what to expect from the story. It will be The Trial, along with a book club I'm in.

      i cried for Frank Kafka. Excellent narration. Humans have the greatest minds and our perspective is driven by things around us.

      When I got to the part 5:56 where the tragic and absurd sentence that the father declares to his son to drown himself, the son absurdly obeying that order, and then for the father to declare that…"You were an innocent child, really, but at heart a diabolical human being" made me made me laugh out loud as if I were watching a Monty Python sketch. Of course, the Terry Gilliam-esque cut-out of the old man jumping up and down on the bed helped! hahahahaha

      This is really really really sad and breaks my heart on the amount of trauma he had to carry with him and the fact he had no support I too know this pain well. This is a glimpse of how sociaty is worldwide many failing to protect the innocent of a child …its carries over for the rest of ones life.

      Kafka's diary is my second favourite book of his. It goes deep into his mind, his philosophy, his life. It gives a lot of insight and context to his works. Max Brod is a great person and the best friend Kafka could ever have.

      There is an English translation of the long letter he wrote to his father somewhere in the internet. Please read it and don’t hold your tears.
