"An essential new translation of the author's complete, uncensored diaries-a revelation of the idiosyncrasies and rough edges of one of the twentieth century's most influential writers. Dating from 1909 to 1923, the handwritten diaries contain various kinds of writing: accounts of daily events, reflections, observations, literary sketches, drafts of letters, accounts of dreams, as well as finished stories. This volume makes available for the first time in English a comprehensive reconstruction of the diary entries and provides substantial new content, including details, names, literary works, and passages of a sexual nature that were omitted from previous publications. By faithfully reproducing the diaries' distinctive-and often surprisingly unpolished-writing in Kafka's notebooks, translator Ross Benjamin brings to light not only the author's use of the diaries for literary experimentation and private self-expression, but also their value as a work of art in themselves"--… (mais)

Mission: Impenetrable. I reached Page 25 then decided enough was enough. Good luck, reader.

I started reading the Kafka diaries with motive of a trip that took me to the Czech Republic and gave me a chance to spend a few days in Prague by myself. Having been enough times in Prague to want to play the tourist again and feeling a uncontainable need to dig further into Kafka's mind --perhaps motivated by the reading of many works by [a:Enrique Vila-Matas|25591|Enrique Vila-Matas|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/authors/1245759180p2/25591.jpg] where the Diaries are quoted over and over-- I decided to fetch this book from the public library in Helsinki and let myself get lost in the Prague where Kafka spent most of his life. The heat was unbearable during most of these August days, and I walked and sweated more than I managed to read, but the trip and the diaries, both, have turned my understanding of Kafka's genius in a fascinating direction.

A man suffering from a weak phyisical condition that kept him ill more often than not, depriving him from strength for anything that he would deem important; a man who spent restless nights tormented by what he himself considered an unability to actually properly write or to write at all; a man frustrated by his relationship with his family; a man haunted by such a vivid imagination that even his dreams and nightmares would not let him in peace; a man whose relationship with women and sex was so full of contradictions and yet was beyond the intensity that his own body and minde were able to bear: all of this combined in a brief but fruitful span of perhaps 15 years at most is what makes for the violent mix that fueled Kafka's creative genius. How else could, back in the days when Realism predominated literature, turning oneself into a gigant insect-like creature would have been even a possibility, if it wasn't for the uncountable nightmares and dreams of Kafka's nights?

But not only an insight into Kafka's mind is to be found in these diaries. Not only an understanding of his suffering. There are also plenty of wonderful observations of his everyday life. Descriptions so vivid and intense of the most mundane situations that one can only admire: Kafka was not only a genius in his creativity but also in his written accounting of the world. If this was not enough, there are plenty of sketches of what later became full-literary works and many other sketches that, unfinished, unpolished, and all, sometimes even in single paragraphs still account for more literary genius than one can find in entire novels.

The diaries are not easy to read, that must be cleared out. They demand fierce strength and above all, patience with the tormented writer. The many depressing paragraphs can wear one down at times. Yet these diaries deserve careful reading by anyone seriously interested in literature, the mind of a genius, and the origin of anything Kafkaesque. ( )

Kafka writing that he can't write is better writing than most writers out there. ( )
