HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FRANZ KAFKA !

FRANZ KAFKA, The Great Czech Author Plus One of The Greatest Writers of The Modern World Literature, Was Born On This Day, July 03, 1883 In The Bohemia Region Of The Then Czechslovakia !

With A Good Deal Of Shortstories and A Couple Of Novels or Novellas(given the relative thickness of his works), Kafka Attained, Most Widely After His Death, A Rather Astounding Worldwide Renown As Being A Larger-Than-Life Kind of Writer In Modern Literary World !

‘THE TRIAL’ , ‘METAMORPHOSIS’ , ‘THE CASTLE’ are Kafka’s Masterpieces Which Have Acquired The Status of World Classics !

Kafka Happens To Be One Of The Earliest Literary Stalwarts Who Had Ushered In The Modernist Tendencies as well as Sensibilities Into Literature !

The Theme of Alienation n Societal Plus Cultural Isolation , The Dilemma Of Human Life , The Shrinking of Choices or The Utter Lack of Meaningful Alternatives in Human Life or What We Call The Existential Angst And The Resultant Frustration Due To The Circumstantial Inability To Escape Out of The All Pervasive Claustrophobic Confines. . . . .et.al Are Kafka’s Mainstay Of His Literary Output !

His Abiding Influence Could Still Be Felt As Largescale As In The Early Decades After His Death !

KAFKASQUE is here to stay for long n long time . . .!

Today Kafka Would Have Been 130. !
