So what makes this Brod Guy's intent for the papers valid, but the original author's invalid?

I'll never be important enough to have "papers" when I die.

The fact that we tend not to burn great works of literature?

Scan em, then give the physical papers back to the descendents of the chick who disregarded the wishes of the guy who disregarded Kafka's wishes.

Maybe put a 50 year cap on keeping them secret, so if the shiat heads want to cash in, they can. Or burn em. Whatever.

Teaching "The Metamorphosis" right now, so really getting a kick out of this story.

Woke up last week with a horrible lung cheese cough that hasn't gone away since. Seriously contemplating uttering the words, "Kill me, or else you are a murderer."

BTW, you know Nabokov taught us that Gregor Samsa had wings? "This is a very nice observation on my part to be treasured all your lives. Some Gregors, some Joes and Janes, do not know that they have wings," he said.

/Love me some Kafka

I recently read a lawyer write about kafka. literature people have routinely avoided or ignored the legal thought present in kafka... but, as this lawyer said, kafka was a pretty good lawyer back in his day, and there was a real awareness about legal theory in his works.

i didn't read the whole thing and it's been a while since I read kafka, but I enjoy when someone finally points out the obvious that critics ignored as metaphor.

I'd be interested in a link-type thing, if you have one.

Might be a little old school and a little obscure for some but if you get the chance, listen to Shelley Berman's routine "Franz Kafka On The Telephone".

An amazing work, truly.

thanks for making me look it up.

it was actually an article published in a law review. I had only read a critcism of the article, but I don't remember where I read it.

I can't find a good link to where I originally read about it, but here's a link to a blog mentioning it. in the blog, there is a link to the original article, but for some reason fark didn't let me link to the article (or I just failed).

Thanks. Looks like one needs to create an account at the next link to download the target, which looks worth it.

Like other existential writers, Kafkas is sometimes too famous (in the US, at least) for his surface angst about existence - which is most of what the Metamorphosis is about, IIRC - and his weirdness, than his angsty examination of our relationships with people and institutions. I've heard of him being listed in Law in Literature syllabi and have always been glad.

I didn't search long for the article. I'm sure you could find it free on google scholar. (I have been able to find a lot of articles that otherwise required membership on google scholar for free).

I think of it this way, critics tend to only examine what concerns them.  there aren't too many lawyers who are well studied in czech law before WWII. and, there are probably even less who have an interest in literature.

Someday, aspiring poot_rootbeer scholars will write theses on my use of slashies.

I'll never have papers, either.
