Franz Kafka & Raúl Guridi | Avenauta, Spain | 96pp |16.5 1 x 20 cm
“Contemplation” was the first compilation of texts that Franz Kafka published. It’s a collection of eighteen stories, most of them very short, closer to notes or even prose poems than to conventional narrative. Stories that deal with the separation between the real world and the inner world, the strangeness of being and the conflicts of the individual against society through what we could call parables without a moral or didactic end, but a symbolic one.
In these first stories, the style, the talent and the flashes of light and pain that would characterize the work of the author, one of the fundamental writers of the 20th century, can already be glimpsed. Bilingual edition Spanish English.
