KIRKUS REVIEW

A psychological, religious, literary analysis that interprets the strength and especially the weaknesses of Kafka's writings. Investigating the aphorisms and quotations to develop the line of Kafka's thinking and spiritual content, the book continues to research in his other works, for the meaning of his images, arguments, and phrases and to press the analogy of his personal plight and the transference of it to his books. Controversial in its attitude and extremely personal in its interpretation, this contradicts, and sometimes clarifies, Brod's intimate biography Franz Kafka (Schocken, P.89) and provides explanatory comment for an important writer.
