Kafka

Kafka died on a day like this 92 years ago.

We could say he was actually relieved when he received his diagnosis. He was going to die soon, said the doctor, and those words seemed to liberate him. They were magical.

He could finally stop looking at a picture of life in which everyone seemed to be having fun. 



Boulter's Lock, Sunday Afternoon



He needed more than a river and sunlight and he could not possibly be part of it.

He could finally move to Berlin. He didn’t have to start a family and be a “responsible” man. He was going to die. He could do whatever he wanted. He could even choose to die.


And so he did.
