 Kafka was born in a jewish familiy in Prague in 1883. His life was a constant fight against himself his father and life. He studied law, and framed himself in a frustrated image, in contrast with his father, a succesful bussiness man and family chief. His books, plenty of a painful acceptation of fate questioned the relationship between the individual and the powers, that being family, state, force.
          The metamorphose shows the situation of a man that has accepted his enviroment  as fate, with guilt, provocked by his family. He wakes up one day, and found out he was converted in to an insect.
          Some of his works that could be situated on the edge of surrealism, approaches to Dino Buzzatti, Italian surrealist and absurdist. Melancholy, never expressed, could be found inside of this false resignation and the traces of the main characters that develop a constantly growing feeling of sickness and isolation.

 

 

 

 

You amaze me, you amaze me. I thought you were a quiet, dependable person, and now all at once you seem bent on making a disgraceful exhibition of yourself. kafka. the metamorphose


Ce qu'on fait n'est jamais compris mais seulement loué ou blâmé. Nietzsche, Gay Science
