Description

Provides a survey of Kafka's oeuvre and its themes. This book is a positive refutation of regnant critical approaches to Kafka in order to retrieve the works themselves and thereby revivify our primitive experience of the world as nihilistic and accidental, making of literature something all-important for our lives.
