Reading Kafka

I am slowly reading (in Hebrew) through some of Kafka’s short stories.

Here is “The Judgement” which Kafka considered to be one of his best stories. Its pretty powerful…

  1. Didn’t get it!

  2. Last time I read through my Kafka book, my favorite was In the Penal Colony.

  3. Chandra – its art… YMMV…

    But think about it – why did the guy kill himself… Your theory is as good as mine ;).

    mikero – Did not get to the Panel Colony yet. I read some of Kafka longer pieces when I was a teenager and was not too impressed (it was a pretty bad translation of The Trial, and I really hated The Metamorphosis).
