“Praga no te deja escapar… Esta madrecita tiene garras… Hay que someterse o… Deberíamos encenderla en dos lados, en el Vyšehrad y en el Hrdaschin, entonces sería posible liberarnos.” Franz Kafka a Oskar Pollak, 20 de diciembre de 1902.

¡Qué gratificante es leer un libro sobre la vida y la ciudad en la que vivió tu autor favorito y el haber tenido la dicha de caminar sus mismas calles!
Praga es a Franz Kafka lo que Dublín es a James Joyce. Es imposible separarlos. Están tan ligados que uno no imagi

A tour of the various houses and areas of Prague that Kafka lived in during his short life (and there were many moves), which acts as a form of travel guide of this picturesque city.The tour is aided with turn-of-the-last-century daguerreotype photographs that enhance the image of our young, bright, sickly, hard -working writer trudging the streets of Prague.

Kafka, a German-speaking Jew, studied to be a lawyer, earned a PhD., a title which he applied very religiously in all his correspondance -

A quirky biography of Kafka lavishly illustrated with contemporary photographs of Prague. A lovely book.

It also include a German - Czech street name reference which is fascinating in itself.

As an introductory guide book and a brief biography this book did actually a pretty good job. But, it felt like a museum book more than anything too personal. I am glad to have read it after visiting Prague and not before, as my trip provided a bit of a rudimentary geographic context for me to understand the book a bit better. I found one of the sections containing obituaries written for Kafka to be fascinating. It was from Johannes Urzidil’s There Goes Kafka. He noted, ‘writing as a form of pra ...more

“Dentro de nosotros aún sobreviven los rincones sombríos, los pasadizos misteriosos, los ventanucos ciegos, los patios mugrientos, las tabernas ruidosas y las recoletas casas de huéspedes. Caminamos por los amplios bulevares de la ciudad recién construida; pero nuestros pasos, nuestras miradas, son inseguros”. Frank Kafka

Una guía muy completa y suscinta de la Praga de Kafka , muchos documentos y fotografía, una historia de los principales sitios y solo falto un mapa sugerido para saber cómo recorrer los sitios que describe

Nice primer on Kafka and Prague. Not a comprehensive bio, but doesn’t proclaim to be - recommended.

Nel corso del mio recente viaggio a Praga sono passato anche per il famoso Vicolo d'Oro: al numero 22 si trovava l'abitazione di Ottla Kafka, sorella di Franz. Lo scrittore passava spesso a trovarla, fermandosi anche parecchie ore. Ora è una piccola libreria, ed è proprio al suo interno che ho comprato questo libro. Si tratta della riduzione di un'opera che di fatto costituisce una guida della Praga di Kafka, in cui vengono cioè descritti e raccontati i luoghi della sua vita: abitazioni, scuole, ...more
Mat Joiner
An excellent little book, not exactly a "full" biography of Kafka so much as snapshots of his life as perceived through the places he lived, worked, and socialised in. Liberally sprinkled with extracts from Kafka's diary and heavily illustrated with period photos of Prague. I found my copy second-hand for a couple of quid. Bargainous and recommended!
