    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 is given The idea that there exists such thing as a must read book is one of the great fallacies diluting literature To ...

    Algo que me encanta de las obras de Kafka es que obligan a sus lectores a crear sus propios pensamientos, no llenan como carcasas vac as sus cr neos con ideas del autor El entendimiento no llega de manera expl cita, 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 interpre Algo que me encanta de las obras de Kafka es que obligan a sus lectores a crear sus propios pensamientos, no llenan como carcasas vac as sus cr neos con ideas del autor El entendimiento no llega de manera expl cita, 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 interpretaci n muy distinta de la de otro y a su vez pueden ser ambas correctas Para ejemplificar esto ltimo, Jorge Luis Borges, Vladimir Nabokov, Jean Paul Sartre y Roland Barthes son algunos de los que estudiaron la bibliograf a kafkiana, sin embargo, no llegaron a tan parecidas resoluciones Aun as , es irrefutable que los cuatro eran genios, y y...

    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 away 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 th...

    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 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 liked most of his stories, a few names come to mind I don t know why and in no specific order A Hunger Artist , a disturbing yet beautiful story about an alienated artist In the Penal Colony Eleven sons and its poetic descriptions A dream loved its disquieting atmosphere is that makin...

    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 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...

    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 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 and discover his short shorts We call it flash fiction now stories under a few hundred words and packing a poem like punch into their lean frames Kafka was a master of the form, but they are too short to use as an essay subject in high school, so too many people don t read them.When you ve adjusted to Kafka as an absurdist who actually likes people, then re read The Metamorphosis and finish it this time it ends on an up note, much to most peopl...
