Mason Haha, they must have nothing better to do. Just read the book, right?! I still think the way Kafka’s characters talks doesn’t make sense. Their sentences are way too long – and I’m using standards in literature, not an actual conversation – and they seem to lack to reason and decency owned by ordinary people.
I understand that Kafka did make several aspects of his book weird and nonsensical – hence the Kafkaesque term – but are how the characters talk part of it as well? Julie I haven’t noticed the run on sentences or lack of reason or decency.
I think …more I haven’t noticed the run on sentences ffanz lack of reason or decency.
I think the Kafkaesque term is attributed to the situations that the characters find themselves in. I liken Kafka to literature, as Salvador Dahli is to art. See all 3 samak about The Castle…. Lists oafka This Book. View all 29 comments. Todo, absolutamente todo lo que le pasa a K.
Nadie colabora, todos entorpecen. La inaccesibilidad al castillo es tal, que todos los funcionarios, dependientes e incluso cocheros o criados conspiran en su contra. Todos tienen su grado de complejidad. Las posadas, la escuela, las oficinas administrativas de acceso al castillo son algunos ejemplos claros. Todo conspira para que K. De la misma manera se enreda Joseph K. Lo complican y detestan la mesonera, Pepilo seducen y celan Friedalo atraen Olga. En ciertos pasajes intenta con Frieda conseguir, utilizando cualquier sortilegio, superar las trabas que le impiden llegar desde bien abajo, al infranqueable castillo, pero es en vano.
Hasta en esto K. Lo que diferencia a K. Kafka, al igual que Dostoievski logra hacerme reflexionar que muchas veces en la vida las cosas no son y puede que nunca sean como queremos y creo que de eso se trata: Yo discrepo de los que dicen que “El proceso” es una novela sin terminar. Gran novela de Kafka. View all 14 comments.

Jun 24, Lisa rated it it was amazing Shelves: If it was Borges, it would be a labyrinthine library full of books one can’t read. If it was Freud, it would be a nightmare in which the dreamer tries to reach a nonexistent goal. But it is Kafka, and therefore it is a bit of all those stories, told in a meticulously described fog. As a symbol of life, it is depressing, and it leaves the reader to ponder what is worse: Life is what is happening in the meantime.

Jun 28, George rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: I’m re-reading The Castle 10 years later with older, more patient eyes and it’s proving to be a wonderful time, especially with the new translation. The new translation adds a dreamy, sudden stillness and frightening sense of desolate open space in Kafka’s work which is better known for his breathless, claustophobic style of writing and description.
This feeling was lost and I’m re-reading The Castle 10 years later with older, more patient eyes and it’s proving to be a wonderful time, especially with the new translation. This feeling was lost and never captured in the previous, “original” translations which used archaic even for kafka’s time english words from Kafka’s odd german.
Punctuation and syntax and grammer and phrasing that Kafka never used or put in were added in the old translations. All of that has been stripped away and the purest form of Kafka’s German in English is now available. While still not the same as the actual German, it’s very close and very true to his “real” style. Within this amazing book that was never finished and thus has no ending, is “The Eighth Chapter”, a small chapter so heart-wrenchingly beautiful I had to read it twice before moving on to the next chapter.
It is a hard book to begin as a “starter” into Kafka, and perhaps not even suggested as a starter regardless. Following his own writing path would be highly valuable, reading through the new critical translations of Amerika and The Trial, as well as his short stories the hunger artist, the sons, the penal colony, the metamorphosiswill grant a greater appreciation when undertaking The Castle.

At the bank, he tried to withdraw money, first from the ATM, and when that proved unsuccessful, from the bank personally; but the teller told him: I am sorry, sir. There is a problem with my Aadhar number and I need to correct it online. There is a power shutdown until the evening. But the laptop would not power up: He called his computer serviceman. He was standing on the roadside for quite some time without success, when a neighbour chanced by.
By this time it had grown quite dark. As he went into his office room, he saw The Castle lying unread on his table.

Evidently, he died of tedium. Thank goodness I stopped before Kafka’s work killed me too.

I was not enriched by the petty squabbles of German? I didn’t like the protagonist; I couldn’t even admire K. I think at the time and place of its writing, it was somehow valuable to use The Castle, pointing out in surrealism the satirible qualities of the bureaucracy and peasantry. The value The Castle has to offer here and now is not worth the attention required to read it.

In the morning, K. B Exhausted after his long walk, K. But all his efforts to contact the administration are proving futile. We refuse to receive it, the officials he awaits the release of their office rather stay cloistered. His behavior shocked Besides the villagers, accustomed to more respect for this prestigious organization and unable to understand as much obstinacy to disturb respectable figures for an insignificant request.
