    Jorge Luis Borges afirmaba que los personajes de Kafka eran Profesionales de la derrota En cierto modo, podemos asegurar eso cuando encuadramos a tres personajes tan particulares como K de El Castillo , Joseph K de El Proceso y Karl Rossman, protagonista de Am rica en ese r tulo, todo confirma que este genio nunca se equivocaba y en cierta medida, los podemos ver como personajes alter ego con caracter sticas autobiogr ficas del mismo Kafka Pero hay algo esperanzador en Am rica que no sucede en las otras dos, y es que m s all de que tambi n est inconclusa aunque a m entender El Proceso es una novela terminada , el personaje de Karl no est envuelto en una serie de situaciones, en su lucha para alcanzar su propio sue o americano , que lo complican de forma negativa, sino que casi sin quererlo es l mismo el que condiciona su destino, en parte por su relaci n con personajes tan negativos como Robinson y Dellamarche y tambi n como la mala decisi n en en el tramo inicial de la novela que lo saca de su precaria zona de confort En el cap tulo El Fogonero , el nico terminado y muy importante para entender el desarrollo de la trama de la novela, nos encontramos ya con un Karl que tiene la gran oportunidad de forjar un futuro gracias a su rico t o, el Senador Jakob Incre blemente y como sucede con los personajes kafkianos, su destino se enturbia r pidamente y ya est...

    America was the first novel written by Kafka and one of several unfinished ones Written in 1910 and only published in 1927 after his death by his great friend Max Brod, he leaves many loose ends and many questions about the true fate that the author would have thought for his protagonist Possibly, it is with this text that Kafka for the first time traces, what will be throughout his work, the body of his literature the exploration of the inner universe of the human being, alienation and persecution, attention to the detail that transfigures reality in an implausible truth The protagonist of this adventure is Karl Rossman, a young man of sixteen who is forced by the family to emigrate to America, a consequence of the humiliation suffered by this one after being seduced by the maid who becomes pregnant At the time the text was written, one of the largest migrations to this country occurred, hoping to reach the famed American dream This fact will condition the whole discourse of the text, revealing to us the vision that the author had, at the time, of this country However it is far from being thought that Kafka presents us with the expected optimistic and promising vision of America On the contrary and it is a fact that makes the book so current , an America revealed by the author presented us as being oppressive as we can see with his play ...

    Often I opt to know as little as possible about the novels I read before starting them which includes not reading the back cover synopsis So I didn t know this was an unfinished novel when I started I hadn t read any Kafka since my teens when I can t say he was ever a favourite of mine My feeling about him was further sullied after reading his letters to Milena, a girl he neurotically and rather cruelly strung along who eventually was to die in the Nazi death camps Those letters are fascinating as an indictement of the way males can distort a female in the imagination to spin out some private fantasy with little thought to the real woman involved Not surprisingly Kafka s America is a bizarre place he never set foot in America in his lifetime For one thing initiative, the will to work, impeccable manners are punished rather than rewarded Kafka s Karl is a hapless good natured innocent who will be taken advantage of at every turn He s every bully s dream victim Authority, as ever, is an irrational and cruel entity Nothing is to be expected of it but persecution Officialdom makes little sense as subordinates often overrule bosses In Kafka s world perhaps only women can be relied upon to show uncorrupted humanity Kafka s heroes ...

    Franz Kafka just watches, he doesn t comment As the seventeen year old Karl Rossmann, who had been sent to America by his unfortunate parents because a maid had seduced him and had a child by him, sailed slowly into New York harbour, he suddenly saw the Statue of Liberty, which had already been in view for some time, as though in an intenser sunlight The sword in her hand seemed only just to have been raised aloft, and the unchained winds blew about her form.And Karl Rossmann encounters many a character of his way but they all seem to be no than soulless puppets But nonetheless all those marionettes on the strings of fate try to manipulate him and use him in their own purpose And whatever he does appears to be wrong and works against him.He couldn t tell the whole story here, and even if it had been possible, it still seemed hopeless to try and avert a threatened...

    3.5Esta es la quinta obra de Kafka que leo aunque es mi primera novela Me gust mucho Se me hizo bastante pesada en algunas partes, pero la historia me parece brillante una muestra m s de la agudeza de este hombre con baja autoestima.Son varios los temas que desfilan en este libro Los siguientes son los que m s destacan, en mi opini n Kafka juega con sutiliza con los matices sociales, los t tulos que nos damos por lo que empleamos y la significaci n relativa que nos otorgamos como una especie de valor humano de eso se desprende, parcialmente, el abuso de autoridad, el poder, denominador com n de distintos trabajos del escritor A su vez, trata la separaci n del ser, lo que uno es de lo que uno desempe a, y que a veces pesa m s lo segundo cuando deber a tener m s importancia lo primero esto es evidente en la escena final del hotel Trata asimismo como es habitual en este autor la alienaci n y la contienda incesante por pertenecer en una sociedad que recibe por necesidad y expulsa por capricho La soledad de Karl Rossmann mientras camina en tierra extra a es una ejemplo claro de lo dicho, puesto que este se encuentra luchando en pos d...

    I loved this first novel by Kafka, much sunny and easier to read than his others even though the chapter on Brunelda is pretty frightening This is incomplete but does not matter much as Kafka s stories are dreamlike and disjointed a...

    I had difficulties not feeling like a tool while reading Kafka at work on my breaks A guy with a beard and thick rimmed glasses read Amerika, just makes me feel like a parody of myself.Kafka is one of those authors young men latch on to in high school or college and inevitably talk way too much about I can definitely see the appeal with the themes of alienation and a system that works against the well meaning individual But there s something I realized while reading this book Kafka would have made fun of them.More than one critical discussion I ve read mentions how the humor of Kafka often didn t translate Humor is tricky when it comes to older works To even get the jokes, you have to have some sort of notion that jokes are expected It s the same way ironic jokes fail is the listener assumes you re an idiot It s hard to see the humor in a lot of Kafka s work unless someone points out that the man would often read his work with a wry, smart ass sensibility.The Trial and the Metamorphisis both could work as dark comedies seen through the right lens.Amerika serves as a pretty effective Rosetta Stone to understanding this It s an outright whimsical comedy, full of over the top shenanigans and bizarre characters It could easily produce a film in the style of the Coen Brothers movies.An odd sort of internal logic is required to make surreal and weird humor work, a tactic Kafka was the outright mast...

    I bought this book over a year ago but decided against reading it once I realised that it was unfinished and I didn t want that for my first Kafka In retrospect it seems so foolish, but I cannot deny the fact that I m glad I hadn t read it then because I wasn t filled with the sufficient amount of despair towards the life I lead, to throughly feel this book, to find closure in it s incompleteness.One is easily horrified by the rare and exceptional abominations of the world, but not by everyday events In Amerika, you are.If one were to ignore the details of Karl Rossmann s life, it would be a regular life with all its moments of exhilaration, mundaneness and deep sorrow It is in the ...
