Profile of the Day: Franz Kafka
Today we celebrate author Franz Kafka‘s 130th birthday! Born on July 3, 1906 in Prague, Austria-Hungry, Kafka is regarded by many as one of the most influential authors of the 20th century. His works explored themes of alienation, physical and psychological brutality, and mystical transformations. His literary legacy continues to influence today’s culture as the term “Kafkaesque” has penetrated the English lexicon to describe surreal situations like those in his writings.
Are you a fan of his stories such as The Metamorphosis, Amerika or The Trial?
