Format: Paperback
Kafka was one of the world's great letter- writers. His letters like his parables, his meditations, his fragments, his journals must be seen not as incidental and additional work but as an inherent part, a constituent center of his work. As a letter - writer Kafka has few equals. His metaphoric and poetic brilliance shine through time and time again. This collection may not have the focus of the letters written to a single person, as those to Milena and Felice Bauer but they also contain the line- by- line brilliance of mankind's greatest voice of anxiety and fear.

Anything Kafka writes is worthwhile ...The letters give a side to him not always clear in his fiction..Kafka wanted a normal life with
a wife and children..something he thought not possible with his TB ..The letters to Felice Baur who he was somewhat engaged to;
are especially touching ..She was an attractive and intelligent woman who for good reason felt Kafka somewhat strange.
Does he want to marry me or what??.....And of course Kafka was eccentric but that is what makes him great!
