Beschreibung eines Kampfes und andere Schriften aus dem Nachlaß Description of a Struggle is one of Kafka's longer minor works and is divided into three chapters The first chapter is narrated by a young man attending a party and tells of his acuaintance as he is referred to in the story that he meets there The second chapter is the longest and is itself split into several sections The narrator leaps onto his acuaintance's back and rides him like a horse and imagines a landscape that responds to his every whim He then meets an extraordinarily fat man carried on a litter who tells him the story of a supplicant who prays by smashing his head into the ground In the third chapter the narrator returns to reality so to speak and continues his walk up the Laurenziberg in winter with his acuaintance Interesting short stories from Kafka All of whom which represent the struggle of a character someway or another Some of the stories very introverted some of them very supernatural All in all a beautiful plethora of Kafkaesue ingenuity I felt my mind was reading what my eyes observe in a Salvador Dali painting a surrealistic landscape with the use of powerfully emotional imagery the kind of images that we associate with dreams or a Hitchcock movie; or else it is a story of a man who had some magic mushrooms mixed and slipped into his schnapps at the cocktail party That was all right too All day in the office evenings at a party at night inthe streets and nothing to excess A way of life so natural that it borders on theexcessiveWhew what a cold hand he cried I wouldn't like to go home with a handlike that You should have let yourself be kissed too my friend That was an omissionStill you can make up for it But sleep? On a night like this? What an idea Just thinkhow many thoughts a blanket smothers while one lies alone in bed and how manyunhappy dreams it keeps warm I don't think that I really understood it but Kafka is worth a shot anyway Definitely a uotable book I guess one could say It's a great read i definitely didnt get this nor did i enjoy it Very very absurd and a bit shocking and as interesting as it might sounds It's notI suffered to continue reading with all that boredomthough I think it might deserve a second chance because I'm not sure I understood everything It's not so much a story to escape to but an escape from your own story If anyone really knows what's going on please share Kafka writes with that deep knowing that is so far removed from everything that I uestion if he even knew his own knowing Literary masterpiece? Of course Aren't all the best writers completely nuts? The short shorts were splendid Not sure what's happening in the title story
