Jason Baker is a writer of short stories living in Brooklyn, New York. The rest of them are fine to let him and sit on their asses. Gregor works for five years in this manner, never missing a day of work, and the first day he is ill they are jerks. Yet, when the vermin dies and they are employed, they all sit down quick to write letters of excuse for themselves. They deplore the fact that the vermin cannot understand them despite evidence to the contrary when he hears them talk and follows their instructions eg.
Furthermore, they make no effort to communicate with him. The rest of the pages could have been filled with grocery lists, recipes, driving directions, what have you, I would still have given it 5 stars. But the thing is, there are so many other stellar stories in this collection, five stars seems like an insult.
I still find myself clenching my jaw when I think about that story. Herr Kafka had such an incredible imagination. It pains me that he was virtually unknown in his lifetime. We are so lucky that his final wishes were not granted, that his writings were not burned. What a tragedy that would have been. Strange, incredibly well written stories. The characters are all helpless to the events happening around and to them and thus are rendered observers to their mostly unfortunate fates, as much as they are subjects.
Through them, we go step by step immersed in their own sense of helplessness and alienation. He weaved the false thread of inner lives of his characters in a way that is as ridiculous and surreal as it possibly can be. They try to make sense, but alas, it is the world Kafka had woven and hence, absurdity reigns triumphantly.
The eponymous story in this collection depicts the pain of a metamorphosis. His transformation into a giant insect stripped him of his ability to move forward with ease. The Great Wall of China appears to have been written stream-of-consciously. It acquired an absurdist overtone. Both these factors intermingled and made me ponder about the vantage point of my love for Kafka.
Investigations of a Dog read like a parable. Narrated from the perspective of a dog, it poses various questions that others were pleased to be ignorant about. In The Burrow , a mole-like creature built Castle Keep over the course of its life and thereby, also took measures to protect it.
In the Penal Settlement is a precursor to The Trial. It is a wonderful amalgamation of his absurdism and the horrors of modern bureaucracy. In The Giant Mole , the narrator discusses about the unfruitful attempt of the village schoolmaster.
His effort of bringing the attention of the community towards a giant mole goes awry. Throughout the course of action, there is a subtle derision for improvement. It is like a deep ocean in which a person is flung; to find out how deep that ocean is, all that needs to be done by the person is to die and traverse the depth.

Kafka was no doubt aware of the resulting awkwardness, and perhaps he hoped to hide from future readers when he asked his confidant Max Brod to destroy all his unpublished manuscripts upon his death.Georgina T. 31.05.2021 at 17:39
