What is Franz Kafka's fictional world

Franz Kafka

In 1919 he completed the "Letter to the father" (see PDF "Franz Kafka - Letter to the Father"), in which he deals with his father on over 61 pages, specifically with the constantly tense relationship due to his father's superior power. The years 1920 to 1924 (until his death) were marked by breakdowns, recovery and further breakdowns. He retired in 1922. In 1924 his health deteriorated and doctors also diagnosed him with larynx tuberculosis. In the recovery phases and the increasingly shorter phases where he felt good, he wrote a few more significant works, such as "Heimkehr" (1920), "Kleine Fabel" (1920), "Das Schloss" (1922, see PDF "Franz Kafka - The Castle ")," First Suffering "(1921)," A Hunger Artist "(1922, see PDF" Franz Kafka - A Hunger Artist ")," Research of a Dog "(1922). “A Little Woman” (1923), “The Building” (1923), “Josefine, the Singer (1923).

Little fable
“Oh,” said the mouse, “the world is getting narrower every day. At first it was so wide that I was afraid, I kept walking and was happy that I finally saw walls to the right and left in the distance, but these long walls come together so quickly that I'm already in the last room, and there The trap I'm running into is in the corner. ”-“ You just have to change the direction of your walk, ”said the cat and ate it.
(Kafka, Franz: Gesammelte Werke. Volume 8, Frankfurt / Main: S. Fischer, 1950 ff., P. 91)

Throughout his life KAFKA was a loner who hardly had any friends. A few years before his death he said of himself:

The "I have very rarely crossed the borderland between solitude and community, I've even settled in it more than in solitude itself. What a lively, beautiful country was compared to Robinson's Island."
(Kafka, Franz, Diaries Volume 3. Frankfurt / Main: Fischer, p. 871)

KAFKA died on June 3, 1924 in a sanatorium in Kierling near Vienna. He was buried in the Jewish cemetery in Prague-Straschnitz.
