Re: Franz Kafka

Happy 133rd birthday, Herr Kafka!


This is my life. This is my damnation. This is my only regret--that I ever was born.

Re: Franz Kafka

A kafkaesque birthday would be like a friend's friend party, where you don't know almost anyone and can't leave because you do not know the neighborhood, feel kind of lost and do not really understand how you got there in the first place.

Your fall should be like the fall of mountains. But I was before mountains. I was in the beginning, and shall be forever. The first and the last. The world come full circle. I am not the wheel. I am the hand that turns the wheel. I am Time, the Destroyer. I was the wind and the stars before this. Before planets. Before heaven and hell. And when all is done, I will be wind again, to blow this world as dust back into endless space. To me the coming and going of Man is as nothing.

Sounds like an entertaining story idea. "Young Franz Goes to a Birthday Party".

Sounds like an entertaining story idea. "Young Franz Goes to a Birthday Party".
"When young Franz ate his cake he was bewildered as to why it tasted utterly salty instead of sweet; and, later, when he opened his birthday presents, all of the boxes were empty. Nor would the guests leave his house, even when it was his bedtime. His friends asserted that they were not playing a joke on him. "

This is my life. This is my damnation. This is my only regret--that I ever was born.

Re: Franz Kafka

A theory of ghosts in general, and an interaction with Kafka's ghost by Derrida.

I will have to track down the paper he wrote on Kafka.
