Reading this aloud feels like freestyle rapping.
So why the fuck was he executed in the end?
My perspective is that it was an ultimate libidinal payment.
Kafka was being torn about by his own feelings of guilt for his experience of estrangement and the burden of labour expected by him throughout his life as a young male. Its not so much the execution itself that mattered but the experience of an impending execution that overshadowed him.
What does /lit/ think of Lady Chatterley's Lover?

If you wanna change the world, why do you study English literature or the humanities/liberal arts and not economics?
Since your great thinkers agree it's all about the way that is organized. Well... Why not study that?
