Reviews of Franz Kafka: The Drawings

Franz Kafka: The Drawings has been getting excellent reviews! In Apollo Magazine, Robert Douglas-Fairhurst writes: “as windows into Kafka’s elusive, elliptical imagination they are fascinating.” And in Literary Review, George Prochnik says: “Wispy, thick, swirled and streaking, the dark lines burst outward, racing or splintering. The strongest impression one is left with while paging through this exquisitely produced volume of Kafka’s complete drawings is of minimally delineated figures in states of maximally dramatised unrest. […] In these drawings we see Kafka, unshackled from the cognitive cage of verbal meaning, remembering how to play.”
