نامه به پدر، که کافکا آن را در نوامبر ۱۹۱۹ یعنی در سی و شش سالگی نوشته است، با آنکه طولش به مراتب از حد یک «نامه» میگذرد، در اصل بهراستی قرار بوده که به پدر تسلیم شود، آن هم از طریق مادر. ولی مادر کافکا، از آنجا که اطمینان داشته است این کار در واقع نتیجهای سر به سر معکوس به دست خواهد داد و مقصود اصلی نامه، یعنی اینکه کافکا بتواند مشکلات روحی خود را به پدر بشناساند به هیچ ر ...more

I have felt very uncomfortable reading this letter. And the thought that I--together with a very large number of people-- have read something which was not intended for us, as well as the knowledge that the original addressee never read it, contributed further to my uneasiness.

Franz Kafka wrote this letter to his father Hermann in 1919, when he was about thirty-six years old. His father's opposition to his planned marriage to Julie Wohryzeck (this was Franz’s second attempt at marriage; previous

"Dearest Father,
You asked me recently why I maintain that I am afraid of you. As usual, I was unable to think of any answer to your question, partly for the very reason that I am afraid of you, and partly because an explanation of the grounds for this fear would mean going into far more details than I could even approximately keep in mind while talking. And if I now try to give you an answer in writing, it will still be very incomplete, because, even in writing, this fear and its consequences ha

Tomando parte de la frase introductoria que aparece en la contratapa de mi edición de este libro puedo decir que la carta más famosa de la literatura contiene una paradoja bien kafkiana: que nunca llegó a su destinatario.
Escrita entre el 4 y el 20 de noviembre de 1919, Franz Kafka, a modo de alivio, rebelión, culpa y descargo tiene la intención de que llegue a las manos de su padre Hermann, pero éste ultimo nunca pudo leerla, tal vez por intervención de Milena Jesenská, su pareja de ese momento

Haunting, sad, disturbing, emotional and a lot of truth inside it.



This book is scary if you are an obedient and faithful child to your parents (which by the way most of us are and were).

Not that my parents treated me anything like the author's father did (not intentionally I know) but when I think of my friends and their life and their parents, it saddens me.

This book then looks like the truth of life.

God forbid me to think of myself in Kafka's place, but to read this book one has to know what

- "رسالة الى الوالد"، من العنوان تستطيع تخمين المضمون، فكافكا لم يقل حتى "والدي" بل تركه مجرداً وعارياً، وهذا ما يتضح لاحقاً.

- الرسالة موجعة جداً، ولا بد من الأخذ بعين الإعتبار ان هذه الرسالة لم يكتبها وهو صغير بل حينما كان عمره 36 عاماً،اي انه كان واعيا ومدركا لكل كلمة يكتبها ولم يكن يضخمها مثلما يفعل الأطفال والمراهقين عامةً.

A letter that never reached his destiny.

Franz Kafka lived all his childhood in the fear of his father, an authoritarian and malicious man. As an adult, while the fear of this father still exists, in this letter addressed to him, Franz Kafka tries to analyze the consequences of this destructive relationship. This paternal domination has made him an anguished, solitary and introverted man, unable to commit himself to a lasting relationship.

An anguish that also gave birth and carried an incomparabl

Having read the Judgment just yesterday and while the story is still fresh in my memory, I could not help but notice the similarities between Georg and Franz. They both feared of getting married, had a terrible relationship with their father, feared their father, had a judgemental and unsupportive father...and last but not least the fancy blouse and the skirt...Yes obviously Kafka's works are confessional and kind of autobiographical even in the metamorphosis Gregor Samsa and Franz have thin ...more

Είναι σπαραξικάρδιο -κι εθιστικό- να διαβάζω τα έργα αυτού του πονεμένου,βαθιά συμπλεγματικου,ενοχικού και φοβισμένου συγγραφέα,έργα που πωλούνται ακόμα σαν φρέσκο ψωμί,μα που ο ίδιος τότε αμφισβητούσε. Αμφισβητούσε το ταλέντο της έκφρασης της απελπισίας του,αμφισβητούσε τον ίδιο του τον εαυτό,ένιωθε τόσο απεγνωσμένος και άχρωμος κι όμως τα έργα του,μέχρι και σήμερα, ζωγραφίζουν με θρηνητικές μπογιές,όλων των ανθρώπων την ψυχική συντριβή.

It's not so much that I was going through an existential crisis at the time (any more than any sensitive, intelligent person might be at any point on the bewildering map) more that it was, and still is, just fascinating to watch Kafka's mind and imagination play itself before my eyes, like a butterfly struggling in a pool of oil.

“Se sou como sou (tirando, naturalmente, a minha natureza e os efeitos da vida sobre nós), isso é o resultado da tua educação e da minha obediência. E se esse resultado, apesar de tudo, te é tão penoso, se tu te negas, inconscientemente, a reconhecê-lo como produto da tua educação, isso deve-se ao facto de a tua mão e o meu material serem tão estranhos um ao outro.” (P.25)

This is a harsh longish letter to Kafka's father that his father thankfully never read. It gives some insight into Kafka's gloomy mind. The Trial, The Castle, Amerika, all are classics of surreal political theater, existentialist classics, all amazing, but this letter, which he never intended we ever read and maybe we shouldn't, depicts an ungenerous, bitter young man who doesn't convince us that his father is as horrible as Kafka thinks he is.

Franz Kafka was one of the major fiction writers of the 20th century. He was born to a middle-class German-speaking Jewish family in Prague, Bohemia (presently the Czech Republic), Austria–Hungary. His unique body of writing—much of which is incomplete and which was mainly published posthumously—is considered to be among the most influential in Western literature.
