Letters to Friends, Family and Editors

Briefe 1902-1924

This volume presents Kafka as son, brother, student, friend, lover, writer, critic, and revealing his fascination for life in all its complex, absurd and tragic manifestations. Though aware of the precariousness of letter-writing, Franz Kafka entrusted to letters many of his thoughts, impressions, experiences and expectations. These letters which follow Kafka s life from his student years through his experience as an insurance clerk to his final days, and explore his friendships with Max Brod, Feliz Weltsch and Oskar Baum confirm his place as one of the great letter-writers of the twentieth century.
Franz Kafka (1883-1924) was one of the giants of 20th-century German literature. His stories, such as Metamorphosis (1915), and novels, including The Trial (1925) and The Castle (1926), concern troubled individuals in a nightmarishly impersonal and bureaucratic world. His writing is some of the most influential in Western culture, although much of it is fragmentary, and was only published posthumously.
