Letters to Felice (Schocken Classics)
Because he was living in Prague and she in Berlin, his biefe was largely an epistolary one—passionate, self-deprecating, and anxious letters sent almost daily, sometimes even two or three times a day. But soon after zn engagement was announced inKafka began to worry that marriage would interfere with his writing and his need for solitude.
The more than five hundred letters Kafka wrote to Felice—through their breakup, a second engagement inand their final parting in the fall of that year, when Kafka began to feel the effects of the tuberculosis that would eventually claim his life—reveal the full measure of his inner turmoil as he tried, in vain, to balance his desire for human connection with what he felt were the solitary demands of his craft.

The talent and importance of Franz Kafla is beyond dispute who could ever forget the insect Gregor Samsa? This book published in is based on his letters to Felice Bauer, the love of his life, and letters to her friend Grete Bloch.
It was not translated until the early 70’s and added important insights to what is known of this literary genius of the 19th century. The book begins with “An Introductory Essay” concerning Kafka’s wishes for publication, “Editors’ Note” about the controversy, “Letters to Felice,” “Notes,” an essay by Kafka, “Chronology from ,” as well as additional information about translations of other Kafka novels and stories from the Schocken Kafka Library.
Great book, hard to find since it hasn’t been published again. Of coursethis is only if you want to go deep into Kafka’s writings. Really excited to read this, the collection of letters is massive in this book. This book is pure proof Franz Kafka was a stalker. It’s endlessly entertaining with letter after letter assuring Felice there is nothing untoward for a year old to be writing an year old, but he really needs to know what she’s wearing and everyone feice meets and exact records of what they said to her.
He wants every tiny detail of her life so he suggests keeping a notebook with her to be precise in the details when she writes him.
Kafia wrote up to 4 letters a day for many years, so it’s a very dense book. I would have liked to read her letters too, but you get a real sense of them from his letters. I like the kindle version so I can just dip in without having to carry around a page book. See all 4 reviews.
