One comment on “The Women of Kafka

  1. I agree on part of this. I believe every author inputs pieces of their personality into the characters. I am sure Kafka had his share of women, but, in all seriousness, glance at a picture of him. He looks like an average European man- nothing that in my opinion would qualify as a “ladies man.” While K.’s overtures are greeted warmly, I think Kafka may have had a little more struggle in this area. For some reason, I just don’t see him as someone who aggressively courts attractive women. Usually, young men who are clinically depressed are not attracted to vibrant social scenes( where good-looking women are often met). A more viable theory is that K. is someone Kafka longed to be, but could not because of his fragile mental condition.
