Kafka’s little meditations form something previously unknown in German literature; I know no model.
This appears to be the way that leads to Parnassus: something like this is profound and fashioned with a most sensitive touch.
Stylistically unbelieveably mature, with the facility of the French masters, rhythmic as the lamentations of lonely young women ...
I can well imagine someone who comes upon this book and from that moment on, changes his life and becomes a different person.
Max Brod in März (Feb. 15, 1913)
