Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Conflict between father and son is one of the oldest themes in literature, and in this open letter to his father—a letter that was never sent—Kafka tries to come to terms with one of the most deeply rooted obsessions of his troubled soul. Written as a long, tense, and dramatic confession in which writer and man are gathered together in front of an ambivalent figure of authority, Letter to My Father is a desperate attempt to retrace the origins of a turbulent and highly conflicted relationship between an unflinching parent and an extremely sensitive child. Kafkas inspired work is both a merciless indictment of his father and an impassioned appeal to him.

Synopsis:

This letter is the closest that Kafka came to setting down his autobiography. He was driven to write it by his father's opposition to his engagement with Julie Wohryzek. The marriage did not take place; the letter was not delivered.

About the Author

Franz Kafka (1883–1924) was one of the major German-language fiction writers of the 20th century, known for The Metamorphosis and The Trial.
