This translation should be required reading for anyone interested in the works of Kafka. It contains the keys to unlock a new level of understanding; how Kafka’s relationship with his father shaped both Kafka himself and everything that he wrote. Kafka sees his father as a raging authoritarian figure from whom he can never escape, and whose strength of character and sense of irreproachableness leaves Kafka crushed. In Franz’s own words: “my writing dealt with you.”
