Most Helpful Customer Reviews

13 of 14 people found the following review helpful By Shalom Freedman HALL OF FAME on October 25, 2004
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.
