Rudolf Groch (Hg.)

Das Böse in der menschlichen Existenz

Die Faszination von Franz Kafkas Erzählungen


Even 100 years after his death, Franz Kafka remains a special phenomenon in the literary world. Literary critics have unreservedly recognised the high artistic quality of his writing. Fourteen stories have been selected for this volume. The texts are each followed by suggestions for interpretation and explanations that open up exciting paths into their world.


A text is always able to make an impact when it reveals the essential characteristics of the human condition. This confrontation with the existential is essential for Kafka. Anyone who wants to get to know the problems of guilt and guilt release, of hope and hopelessness, of illusion and reality, of power and powerlessness, of empathy and ecpathy, of body and soul and of the possible and the impossible will find this book intellectually enriching for a deeper understanding of the world. It illuminates the paradoxical and grotesque facets of Kafka’s world.

Rudolf Groch, born in Greifswald in 1937, graduated from high school in 1961 and then studied German and economics in Hamburg and Cologne until 1966. A stay in Paris followed between 1967 and 1968, before the author went into teaching in Lübeck in 1969, which he left in 2003 as a director of studies. Kafka found an appropriate place in his lessons, and whether he was able to inspire thoughtfulness is open to question.
