Interesting details of the life and work of F. Kafka

“Letter to the Father,” written by F. Kafka with a purely private purpose, was widely known as a literary and artistic document of the “eternal” theme of the conflict of “fathers and children.” Analyzing in this letter the negative consequences of the father’s education system, Kafka particularly noted: “In this way the world was divided for me into three parts: one world where I lived, obeying laws that were invented only for me and which I, for some unknown reason, I will never be able to fully comply, in another world, infinitely distant from me, You lived, commanded, commanded, indignant at the fact that Your orders were not being fulfilled, and, finally, the third world where the rest of the people lived, happy and free from orders and obedience. “I was always ashamed: e was ashamed when I’m stubborn – because I dared to be obstinate against you! – or was not able to fulfill them, because he did not possess, for example, either Your strength, Your appetite, or Your dexterity, but You demanded all this from me as something self-evident. This, of course, caused me the greatest shame. This was not the thought, but the feelings of the child. “A close friend, the first biographer and interpreter of Kafka, the writer Max Brod said:” Absolute truthfulness was one of the main features of Kafka’s character. Another feature of his was conscientiousness, even in small things… It was most clearly manifested in matters of morality: he never ignored the slightest shadow of injustice… his conscientiousness was the result of a heightened sense of responsibility. I recall one general evening, immediately after the appearance in the press of a message that Italy declared war on Turkey. We were at the theater, Franz seemed extremely agitated. In the intermission he suddenly said: “Now Italian warships are standing near the defenseless shore.” And he smiled sadly. “
