Series Interdisciplinary German cultural studies ; Volume 21
Interdisciplinary German cultural studies ; Volume 21.
Note Proceedings of two international conferences (one on "Kafka and His Readers", held at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 2012, the other on "Kafka and the Paradox of the Universal", organized at the University of Antwerp in 2013).
Summary "Kafka has been widely praised for his rendering of a universal human condition. Yet his work is also considered to have given voice to the singularity of experience. This paradox in the reception of Kafka engenders questions concerning the interplay between philosophy and literature, especially pertaining to the meaning of the universal and its transformation, which the contributions of this volume address from a variety of perspectives."-- Provided by publisher.
