Kafka, Franz
One of the fascinating things about Franz Kafka is that he has a place in modern culture in addition to literary history. His name is synonymous with the concepts and themes prevalent in his books, as the widespread use of the adjective ?¢Kafkaesque?¢?? makes clear. This familiarity with Kafka, and the temptation to relegate him to a handful of adjectives and images endures despite the fact that his works resist easy classification or interpretation.
Kafka was born in Prague in 1883 to German-speaking Jewish parents. He had a difficult relationship with both of them, especially his father, and the tension between father and son is a prominent theme in many of his works. As a young man, Franz?¢s experiments with fiction were tempered by his knowledge that he needed a career that was more substantial (and acceptable to his parents) than writing. Thus he spent his adult life divided, working at an insurance company writing reports on worker safety during the day and writing fiction in the evenings.
Though very critical of his early work (he destroyed most of it prior to 1905) Kafka continued to write. His friend and writer Max Brod recognized Kafka?¢s gifts and strongly encouraged him. In 1912, his first major story, ?¢The Judgment?¢?? was completed, followed by

    Sought out by leading avant-garde publishers, Kafka reluctantly published a few of his writings during his lifetime. These publications include two sections (1909) from Beschreibung eines Kampfes Description of a Struggle Betrachtung Meditation ), a collection of short prose pieces; and other works representative of Kafka's maturity as an artist The Judgment, a long story written in 1912; two further long stories, Die Verwandlung Metamorphosis ) and In der Strafkolonie In the Penal Colony ); and a collection of short prose, Ein Landarzt A Country Doctor A Hunger Artist ), four stories exhibiting the concision and lucidity characteristic of Kafka's late style, had been prepared by the author but did not appear until after his death. In fact, misgivings about his work caused Kafka before his death to request that all of his unpublished manuscripts be destroyed; his literary executor, Max Brod, disregarded his instructions. Brod published the novels The Trial

    Franz Kafka , Writer
    • Born: 3 July 1883 Birthplace: Prague, Bohemia (Czechoslovakia) Died: 3 June 1924 (tuberculosis) Best Known Work: The Trial and The Metamorphosis

    Kafka is renowned for his visionary and profoundly enigmatic stories that often present a grotesque vision of the world in which individuals burdened with guilt, isolation, and anxiety make a futile search for personal salvation.
    His major works include: The Trial (Der Prozess), The Castle (Das Schloss), Amerika and The Metamorphosis. Most of his works were published posthumously.
    His complex and impersonal stories are so unique that his name inspired an adjective - Kafkaesque.
    "I need solitude for my writing; not 'like a hermit' - that wouldn't be enough - but like a dead man."

    Franz Kafka: Coffee Achiever?
    by Alex Scofield Page 2 Prague caf culture was a pivotal element of Kafkas life and an inspiration to his writing. The characters in his novels and short stories are often coffee drinkers. Kafka's writing often instills in the reader a jumpy and jittery feeling of having drank one coffee too many. So what were Kafkas coffee preferences? Did he take it with cream and/or sugar? Unfortunately, the answer to this question remains elusive. Max Brod, Kafkas friend, editor, and biographer, often describes Pragues cafes, never mentions Kafka actually drinking coffee in Franz Kafka: A biography . As fused as Kafkas name is with coffee culture, after several weeks of reading online and hard-copy biographies of Kafka, I can only venture an educated guess as to whether he drank our favorite beverage.

    Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech-born German writer is best known for his short story Metamorphosis (1912) and the widespread familiarity of the literary term Kafkaesque, inspired by his nightmarishly complex and bizarre yet absurd and impersonal short stories. Franz Kafka was born 3 July, 1883 in Prague, Bohemia, now the Czech Republic, into a Jewish middle-class, German speaking family; his mother Julie, (ne Lwy), three younger sisters and his successful merchant father Hermann. Hermann owned a shop below where the family lived in Prague's House of the Three Kings. He was ill-tempered and disrespectful towards his son's escape into literature and pursuit of writing and proved to be an on-going source of conflict and despair in many of Kafka's works. Kafka became the eldest and only son when his two brothers died in infancy and he was excruciatingly aware of this role in the family for the rest of his life. Kafka rebelled against his father's materialism and often wrote metaphorically of the struggle to overcome a dismayingly gargantuan, overpowering and practically suffocating force, much like his own timid and shy self in relation to his father. His
