Franz Kafka was a German-speaking Bohemian novelist and short-story writer, widely regarded as one of the major figures of 20th-century literature. His work fuses elements of realism and the fantastic.

Franz Kafka's work and views are often dark and disorienting, and yet they connect with a great many readers. His work provides a paradoxical comfort in its confrontation with the inexplicable discomfort we can often all feel in life .

Lesson learned from Frank Kafka...

Don't bend to bullies, don't water it down.

There's no crown to be worn in your fatherland!

"Not everyone can see the truth, but he can be it."

Nobody spots when it's precise

And where truth became a felony

Soon we need to learn how to win

Every college student ought to read his books, and write a given essay about him as a comprehensive review on at least one of his books...

Not exactly correct Kafka is Kafka, Kafkaesq refers to the work of others that resembles that of Kafka. the affix "-esque" simply means "like" or "similar to", not necessarily "the same" or "equal to". Parallel example "Romanesque"  architecture, is based on "Roman" architecture. if some thing is "picturesque"  it is not a "picture" but something natural that looks lke a man made picture. Burlesque (from french for joke) is a a funny versión of something serious, e.g. not a joke.

If only KAFKA knew how much he is important these days... he wouldn't have been as isolated and miserable throughout his life.

He lived in Prague under the Austro-Hungarian empire, thus he did not speak German, he spoke Austrian - it's a totally different accent!
