Why we don’t understand Kafka

“How many words there are in this book! They are meant for remembrance! As though words could remember! For words are poor mountaineers and poor miners. They cannot bring down the treasure from the mountains’ peaks, or up from the mountains’ depths”

You absolutely must read this: Why we don’t understand Kafka.

Also I’m reading Gabriel Josipovici’s book Whatever Ever Happened To Modernism.
