#249 Kafkaesque


I doubt that this particular K refers to Kafka, but I have no other thoughts.

    1. I’m sorry, sometimes I forget that not all the people are so enthusiastic about literature as me… Kafka was a Prague Jewish writer writing in German, “kafkaesque” is a legitimate word referring to imitators of his style. You see, it’s nothing too interesting or too important, heh 😀


      1. Hey it sounds very interesting, I like literature when something ‘hits’ me..I am obviously not as learned as you in this respect though…but always willing to learn and enquire 🙂


        1. Good then!! Happy to hear 😀 Kafka is deemed difficult though and as I said, I haven’t read him myself, so I could hardly blame you for any possible lack of knowledge in this respect!


  1. Or it could be referring to one of Kafka’s two emblematic protagonists from The Trial and The Castle namely ”Joseph K.” and ”Franz K.”,both of whom are simply referred to as ‘K’ in the books.

    With a little imagination,the K in the picture might testify to the presence of one of the Ks at your place; ”K was here”. 🙂

    But what is it really?


    1. Yes! Thank you so much for this additional explanation! Still haven’t read Kafka myself *blushes* 😳 In reality it’s a close-up of a brick wall in a public place — I imagine the K would refer to the company producing the bricks but I didn’t investigate.


      1. Oh,you have nothing to blush about! On the contrary,the fact that you know who Kafka is and how important his works are tell much about you! 😉

        I know some people who,if they were in your place,would have feigned knowing what I was saying! So kudos to you! 😀


        1. Thanks for the kudos, you’re too kind 😉 Well, I couldn’t pretend that I know what you’re talking about even if I wanted to because, well, I simply couldn’t, I’m so poor at pretending anything. Now I’m haunted by this omission of mine and I’ll see if I can download Kafka to read on my mobile while on the train commuting…
