One thought on “The Trial

  1. Stephen

    Kafka is tough Kafka doesn t play and he doesn t take prisoners His in your grill message of the cruel, incomprehensibility of life and the powerlessness of the individual is unequivocal, harsh and applied with the callous dispassion of a sadist Life sucks and then you die, alone, confused and without ever having the slightest conception of the great big WHY Fun huh Finishing The Trial I was left bewildered and emotionally distant, like my feelings were stuck looking out into the middle distance [...]

    Has this ever happened to you You re chugging your way through a book at a decent pace, it s down to the last legs, you ve decided on the good ol four star rating, it s true that it had some really good parts but ultimately you can t say that it was particularly amazing And all of the sudden the last part slams into your face, you re knocked sprawling on your ass by the weight of the words spiraling around your head in a merry go round of pure literary power, and you swear the book is whispering [...]

    It is not necessary to accept everything as true, one must only accept it as necessaryNothing speaks a profound truth than a pristine metaphor Funny, us, worming through the world ascribing meaning, logic and order to the dumb, blind forces of void It s all one can do to maintain sanity in the absurd reality of existence, but what is it worth Are we trees in gale force winds fighting back with fists we do not possess Is life the love of a cold, cruel former lover bating us on while only concern [...]

    This book haunts me I can t stop thinking about it because I have questions, questions and questions I have so many unanswered questions that I will never know the answer to, and it s slowly killing me What is the trial Is K actually guilty or is he innocent Is this novel a nightmare sequence or a paranormal encountering Why are so many characters never heard from again And who is that mysterious figure at the end of the novel that witnesses K s fate There are just so many questions, but no dam [...]

    The tortured bureaucratic world described in The Trial always strikes me as startlingly modern I wonderedHow The Trial might have started if Kafka had been an academic writing in 2010K s latest conference paper had been rejected, and now he sat in front of his laptop and read through the referees comments One of them, evidently not a native speaker of English, had sent a page of well meaning advice, though K was unsure whether he understood his recommendations The second referee had only written [...]

    Tener un proceso significa haberlo perdido ya La obra de Kafka es compleja, inquietante y genera usualmente en el lector el mismo desconcierto que en sus personajes, quienes terminan enredados en infinitas encrucijadas y laberintos que nunca logran desvelar Durante la primer lectura de este libro, hace muchos a os, yo no hab a le do tanto a Kafka y tampoco hab a aprendido sobre los detalles sobre su vida.De ah el hecho de que yo escribiera en la rese a original, de pocas l neas El Proceso me ha [...]

    A mind is like a parachute It doesn t work if it isn t open Franz KafkaSomeone must have been telling lies about Josef K he knew he had done nothing wrong but, one morning, he was arrested.This famous opening line becomes yet intriguing as it pitches us directly into a scene whereby the first two protagonists are granted a degree of anonymity by the author, as he seeks to lure us into his philosophical daydream.K is clearly under house arrest, but his perplexing captors aren t at liberty to tel [...]

    Somebody must have made a false accusation against me, for I was accused of not having read The Trial without having even raised the topic I fixed up a brew, poked in a madeleine, and summoned up the liars of recall I recalled my sixteen year old self, in his bedroom in his backwater home town, feasting on Vonnegut, Poe, and Kafka one miserable summer then the liars spoke to me Are you merely inserting Kafka s The Trial as a book you ought to have read during that summer of pain, when in actual [...]

    A Crazy TrainAll Aboard No novel will likely ever approach THE TRIAL in traducing the dark justice of the dictatorial governments that came to power after its 1925 publication, or, conversely, giving one a special, and by all means necessary, appreciation for the criminal justice system and fundamental rights granted those in the free world Imagine you are charged with a crime, but no one will tell you what that crime is, who specifically what part of government is charging you with the crime an [...]

    On his thirtieth birthday, bank employee Josef K is arrested for an unknown crime and prosecuted on certain Sundays by an unknown agency.Yeah, that s a pretty vague teaser but how else do you drag someone into The Trial On the surface, The Trial is an absurd legal drama that nicely illustrates how inept bureaucracy can be However, my little gray cells tell me that s just the tip of the iceberg The Trial seems to be about how incomprehensible and absurd life can be at times I don t think it s a c [...]

    WHAT IS THIS SHIT.I have read many reviews and saw that I belong to the minority who just didn t like or get this book.Like the author, I am going to leave The Trial unfinished and surrender to the fact that, unfortunately, Franz Kafka s writing is way too bizarre, inane and unrealistic for my tastes.The protagonist, a pretentious banker named Josef K woke up one morning to find two strangers in his room who told him he was under arrest The reason for his conviction is never revealed and even th [...]

    I vividly remember asking my mother at quite earlier in my years, from where do we get babies, did you buy me from god The corners of her eyes crinkled, she was reddened deep in effort to try not to burst in her husky laughter, I remember her asking me back with her flushed face, and what do you be doing with answer I said quite prudently and emphatically, I want to have some I don t know where the tail of this baby talk ended, but I didn t manage to have any, to this date, albeit being conversa [...]

    Kafka s Trial is one of those books that are always present in cultural sphere and referenced ad nauseum Despite never having read Kafka before I am quite sure I used the word Kafkaesque on many occasions and maintained a semi eloquent conversation about The Trial.I could ve probably done without ever reading it but recently I resolved to take my literary pursuits seriously and since books seem to be the only thing in this world I truly care for I might as well take it to another level The Trial [...]

    First, a quick summary of this horrible, horrible novel Some jackass gets arrested, he does things you would not do, sees people you would not see and has thoughts you would not have After that, a priest and a parable then, mercifully, the end.Now my thoughts K is a pompous ass with a very important job to him The bureaucrats are the best part of the whole story, all job description, no brains like now K s uncle, lawyer and landlady are very forgettable Fr ulein B rstner is intriguing, so is Tit [...]

    Look at Joseph K a bank officer living in a country with a constitution He wakes up one day with strange men in his apartment telling him he s under arrest Why or for what offense, no one knows The arresting officers themselves don t know and can t tell him Even if he s under arrest, however, no one picks him up or locks him in jail He can still go to his office, work, perform his customary daily chores, and do whatever he wants to do as he awaits his trial But he is understandably anxious and w [...]

    Who Dared Seize Him Ever since first reading this novel in school, I ve assumed the word Kafkaesque described an aspect of society analogous to living under a totalitarian state.For much of this thoroughly enjoyable re read, I persisted with this view.However, when Joseph K is arrested with no apparent justification, he is surprised than an inhabitant of a fascist state He asks Who could these men be What were they talking about What authority could they represent K lived in a country with a le [...]

    Franz Kafka s Trial is one of the basic works of Twentieth Century literature that everyone should read It stands the paradigm of the Whodunit on its head We know from the first chapter that the hero K is the guilty person We spend the rest of the novel trying to find out what on earth his crime was.The Trial asks the big questions in a startling manner Man has created a cruel and indifferent society ruled by an absurd bureaucracy Has God also created an absurd world At the end of the book Kafka [...]

    Verdict A tome of existentialist tripe so bleak and pointless there isn t even a trial.There comes a point in the evolution all art visual, literary, musical, wherein those who create it eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil and become too self aware Look at this medium, they proclaim We have been following rules, society imposed rules limiting what our work can be, limiting what we can be It shines suddenly and clearly before them, conventions that were never questioned are suddenly d [...]

    I have been terminated from my job here in the Middle East and is currently in the process of relocating to India It s a somewhat nightmarish scenario, uprooting oneself after ten years that too, unexpectedly So I am plagued by disturbing dreams in the night where I am caught in situations without escape forgetting luggage at the airport, searching for house in a country whose language is unknown to you, etc This is pretty much common for me and these dreams will disappear once I am past the cri [...]

  24. Pantelis

    This is a novel about guilt, although Josef K appears not to know why he is under trial Everyone is guilty of something If you are told that you are guilty of something untold, I am sure you know what you are guilty of, without being told Guilt, secret guilt, abyssmal guilt That s why the novel has a beginning, an end but not a middle, it carries an infinity within it, an endless wandering inside a bureaucratic labyrinth, a juridical labyrinth, the labyrinth of Kafka s and every reader s conscie [...]

    Sometimes when book bothers me, I read by the same auther to develope my sense of the author s style and personality This book, however, did the opposite, after finishing it I had the same thought, this is brillian but why does the author write such fantastical situations I finally get this guys genius after I read a quote in a book I am reading now that says, all good fiction does not necessarily depict reality as much as it uncovers truth FINALLY, I got it I get Kafka and can readily supply [...]

    Quintissential Kafka, apparently prompted by an unexpected interrogation in a Berlin hotel room re his intentions re Felice, conducted by her and a couple of friends Officials of a vague and unspecified court arrest K for an unspecified crime but he never queries the charge An endless stream of futile investigations and obscure legal practices ensue A metaphor for exploring the meaning or otherwise of life, the burden of duty, and struggling to find salvation aided by the intercessions of dubiou [...]

    After all, K lived in a state governed by law, there was universal peace, all statutes were in force who dared assault him in his own lodgings The state is an ogre The citizen is a pygmy And an ogre can do with a pygmy whatever it wishes But ogres prefer to eat pygmies and for appearance s sake they use law And to apply law there are courts and bureaucracy The gradations and ranks of the court are infinite, extending beyond the ken even of initiates The proceedings in the courts of law are gener [...]
