Franz Kafka ´ 2 SummaryNtimeters to the left with the exception of one lone grimy spoon Nearly everything was askew to some degree This book was so painfully well done that eading it often made me ueasy My brain got itchy and suirmy and fussy It set my teeth on edge It was like wading through molasses of dubious origin and hue It was claustrophobic and smeary That said it managed to make me laugh uite a bit too It seemed to fit the definition of grotesue The Pavement Arena rather well comically orepulsively ugly or distorted See also many of the synonyms for grotesue malformed deformed misshapen misproportioned twisted and gnarled Bottom line In my opinion The Castle was conceptually brilliant but the actual eading of this intense novel
WAS OFTEN THAN NOT A VIVIDLY DREADFUL EXPERIENCE ASoften than not a vividly dreadful experience as no doubt intended I was awfully fond of those assistants though Honestly I uitIt was too how do I say itKafkaesue But am I greater than the writer himself No Kafka uit too and just as mid sentence as I only later in the text Evidently he died of tedium Thank goodness I stopped before Kafka s work killed me tooI was not enriched by the petty suabbles of German Czech villagers and the gyrating evasions of bureaucrats worshiped in detail by said suabbling villagers I didn t like the protagonist I couldn t even admire K for not liking

of existence Edwin the Scottish expatriate poet who first discovered Kafka for us anglophones in the 1930 s was sure that the dear misunderstood Franzel had an armlock on some Hidden TruthBut what if this key to Kafka is that he was caught in the complex to and fro ing of Hegel s Contrite Consciousness the tempestuous Ethical Plane of existence according to Kierkegaard And what happens when the human mind morphs from the everyday sphere of living for the day to a scary Moral SphereIt can be like Freud s The Schreber Case After all there s no justification for moral judgements in an amoral world is there So we e automatically viewed as a stranger Once you take sides Sonny you Life Leverage re on your own The mind tends to play tricks on us at that pointAnd once challenged and stopped dead in its tracks the mind starts toeplay its key judgements and obsessions ad infinitum as Kafka does here almost in anticipation of Freud s example Schreber but only neurotically and not psychoticallyBut hey you ise above the herd and it ain t gonna be easy Let me put it from another angle did Frodo Chicken Out From His out from his Not on your life Though like us he etreated to the false comfort of his Ring now and then and paid for it heavilyJust as Kafka and Schreber take comfort in their obsessive disorders Though Frodo s fix is a VERY dangerous narcissism PowerBut Kafka IS calling us from a higher plane because the Castle itself is theologically symbolic of a Higher RealityJust as Mordor is the hobbits Armageddon and Gandalf is their Guardian Angel along with the elfin folkEven though that wonderful symbolic Alhambra reality has now become shadowy and ungrounded in the crass garish light of the daily news and though heads of state now seem utterly self seeking making our Land Surveyor seasoning utterly nonsensical to them we now all have to live in an Upside Down Kingdom the postmodern mindsetThat s a fact of our lives for us modern ethically minded seekers for we uixotes are now hopelessly pitted against powerful electronic windmillsOkay then Had Kafka lived longer would he have written in a HAPPY ENDING for the poor Land Surveyor Would he have entered the Castle finallyI think soBecause all it takes is that one unforgettable moment when at the end of all our wanderings we hear the magical voice of the Woodthrush calling through the Fog That moment when it finally dawns on us that there s a much BIGGER story going on here than our own tiny story of dazed frustration as we trudge endlessly with the Land Surveyor through the snowdrifts of an Eastern European villageLike in Kafka s AmerikaThe bigger story of RedemptionFor it s not about us It s about something BiggerKafka made this clear in a short story called Before the Law only once surreptitiously published in his lifetime In Before the Law a man ceases to believe because he can t even believe in the Law So if he can t believe in the Gospel he loses the ight to enter through the Gate of HeavenSo the man always starts again And TRIES again And continually starts again at the beginning simply because he now no longer believesWhen it s time for him to die the Gate is Closed WhyBecause he has given up trying believing AND BEGINNING AGAIN And accepting the Law as absurdly God s willIn Amerika though Kafka comes to see that Salvation is a Free GiftAnd it s only because he has given up hope completely that the Gate the Castle or the Gift of Grace of the Law is Now closed to himUntil he starts over but NOW it s too lateOr WOULD be too late WITHOUT GRACEOr without the LAWFor to Kafka himself at the end Grace now ABOUNDEDHe now had kept his part of the bargain always trying unlike the Land Surveyor no matter how hard it became to believe and BITE THE BULLET OF THE HARD AND FAST TRUTH of the LAWAND SO THE CASTLE GATES SWUNG OPEN.
