I have hardly anything in common with myself and should stand very quietly in a corner, content that I can breathe.F. Kafka
Back in my school days, Kafka’s books were something orgasmic and with little effort I was sucking the pages out of them.
Words were lickable, and my brain really loved to taste them. His work, which fuses elements of realism and the fantastic, typically features isolated protagonists faced by bizarre or surrealistic predicaments and incomprehensible social-bureaucratic powers, and has been interpreted as exploring themes of alienation, existential anxiety, guilt, and absurdity.
Not a Kafka fan? It’s OK, you can go back to your corner 😉
